“Deborah Bonham and her band are from and for the heart, soul and feet. No one does what they do. We need them” BBC
Beginning another year on a high with her triumphant show at the legendary 100 Club in January, worldwide festival favourite Deborah Bonham & her powerful band featuring players from Paul Rodgers, Black Sabbath, Rory Gallagher & Steve Marriott have just been confirmed to accompany the legendary Free, Bad Company and The Firm vocalist, PAUL RODGERS on his ‘FREE Spirit’ UK tour, as he revisits his phenomenal catalogue with one of music’s’ seminal blues-rock bands.
Paul had this to say in his press release about the FREE Spirit Tour: “It was so inspirational playing Free material with Deborah Bonham's band, led by guitarist Pete Bullick, when we played charity gigs to support Willows Animal Sanctuary and Assisted Therapy Unit, which my wife Cynthia and I plus Deborah Bonham and Pete Bullick are Patrons of, that I promised myself that someday we would tour the UK with this band. Well...that someday has come”.
Special Guest on the tour will be Deborah Bonham, accompanied by Nigel Kennedy and former Robert Plant guitarist, Doug Boyle, who recorded with Deborah and the band on her album, ‘The Old Hyde’ and performed with the band at the 100 Club show in January.
“She’s quite possibly the most vocally impressive, entertaining and awe-inspiring performer I’ve seen. The band’s visual presence is phenomenal, all of who are visibly taking enjoyment from their time on stage.” MetalTalk
With enhanced versions of all of her albums being released later in 2017 through Cadiz Music, ‘The Old Hyde’ feat. Jason Bonham & Mick Fleetwood, ‘Duchess’ feat. Paul Rodgers & Jerry Shirley, ‘Spirit’, feat. Robert Plant, Deborah will be performing many of these songs live plus several originally recorded in 1985 for her debut album ‘For You And The Moon’. A new album ‘Looking Back At The Moon’, a collection of the 1985-1991 sessions including the best of ‘For You And The Moon’ and some unreleased tracks is now available.
“A powerful rock band steeped in the primal intimacy of the Blues” Classic Rock
On stage over the last few years she has sung with Paul Rodgers - Deborah’s mesmerizing performance at The Royal Albert Hall as his guest received a standing ovation at the sell-out concert. When Blues Matters! caught her duet with Dan McCafferty of Nazareth, it was ‘a vocal marriage made in Heaven.’
More recently, Robert Plant stepped on stage unannounced to a delirious crowd at Deborah Bonham’s show to perform Led Zeppelin’s ‘When The Levee Breaks’ with her band and then Johnny Kidd & The Pirates’ classic, ‘Shakin’ All Over’ with Deborah, delighting the crowd with their obvious shared, magical chemistry.
After a rapturous opening set for FOREIGNER at their sold out London Palladium show, Deborah was invited back on stage for the encore to duet on ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’.
2017 sees a select series of UK dates to follow the London show and her return to Europe for further sold-out shows, where the French Press call her “Princess of Rock”
