For this special show, Wishbone Ash will perform their landmark album, Argus, in its entirety. The band's third release, Argus is interwoven with medieval and spiritual imagery, featuring such classics as “The King Will Come,” “Throw Down the Sword” and “Blowin' Free” – all three are still staples of Wishbone Ash's regular concerts. It is on Argus that guitarists Andy Powell and Ted Turner perfected their melodic twin-lead style, which later influenced such bands as Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden.

By all standards, Argus was an extraordinary achievement. In his memoir, Eyes Wide Open, Powell says, “In retrospect, nothing else we did would be quite so significant. … It turned out to be an album of powerfully if loosely connected themes: time passing, aspiration, conflict, good and evil.”

Argus is the quintessential Wishbone Ash recording, the holy grail of realizing the band's unique and complex vision. Argus sold more than one million copies worldwide for Decca/MCA and was released. Remixed and remastered for the album's 30th in 2002, the reissue was one of the fastest sell out printings in MCA history. 

This iconic performance alongside local legends Rufus Huff and Greg Martin as opening acts is sure to be a night to remember.
