A living legend, Mel George Gaynor, promotes his new band with an extensive tour across the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. As an eminent songwriter, a singer with a powerful voice, and a man who’d made millions of people clap to his steady beat, he dares promising not to leave you even-hearted with this concert!

Mel has begun his professional music career in the early 80s, soon being recognized as an outstanding drummer and joining at the time emerging Scottish band – Simple Minds. With his substantial contribution, the band recorded their successful singles ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’‘Belfast Child’‘Waterfront’‘Alive And Kicking’, etc. Albeit, the word successful might be a deminutive for what reach those songs created for the band, ultimately achieving multi-decennial worldwide fame.

The collaborations with singers and bands whose songs occupy the top charts positions came as a natural extension of his work. He’d ended up recording an ageless compilation of time-proof tracks, for household names like; Elton John, Lou Reed, Tina Turner, Meat Loaf, Samson, Kirsty MacColl, The Associates, Peter Gabriel, The Pretenders, Gary Moore, Jackson Browne, Little Steven, Brian May, The Nolans, Goldie, Robert Palmer, Joan Armatrading, and many, many more…

With a long view from the peak of the music world mountain, and with an experience of playing thousands filled-out clubs, stadiums, and festivals, many might say that he has nothing left to prove.

They just might be right …
