Robin Trower to Release New CD...
Where You Are Going To

Robin Trower’s upcoming CD, Where You Are Going To, is the latest in his ever growing catalog. The new CD is more of a rocker than the last one, but still squarely based in Robin's love for Blues. Robin's voice is much more confident on these ten new studio recordings, and the guitar work is stunning. A continuation of Mr. Trower's creative upsurge, Robin is credited with Guitar, Vocals, and Bass with Chris Taggart on Drums, with Livingstone Brown also on bass, co-production and mixing/mastering. Robin created the art piece that was turned into a classy package by Graphic Artist Eric Krause. There is a limited run of vinyl LPs available.

Expect a 28-city US tour in the Eastern US this Spring supporting the new CD. Some UK/Europe dates will be scheduled for later in 2016, with Western/ Central US to be scheduled for Spring 2017. The road trio is Robin, Chris Taggart and Richard Watts on Bass/Vocals. Robin will be singing at least three tunes from the new CD on the tour. Release in the States is 3/25, and 4/25 in the UK. Advance orders for the Where You Are Going To CD, MP3s and ltd. ed. LP are available at Amazon.

There will not be any more US touring for the Robin Trower band this year.

We hope to have information on the next touring period at the end of the summer, but there is nothing like a plan in the works yet. The earliest possibilities start in March 2009.

For all the Australian Fans who have been emailing, I am sorry to report that although we have investigted the possibiity of a tour down under, the expenses vastly outweigh the possible income.

We will post it here as soon as we have a definite period for more dates. Including a possible few shows with Jack Bruce after Jack's Summer tour schedule is completed. (No Promises!)

-Derek Sutton


We have been unable to get dates routed well enough to make a proper four week tour in the September through November time period. So we are now looking in Feb-March 2009.

Because the cancelled shows in Cleveland and Columbus cannot be resheduled until early next year, please contact your local ticket outlet for instructions on what to do with those unused tickets. It will depend on the local venue whether they refund your money or keep the tickets valid until the replay date.

Robin asked me to tell everyone who had tickets to those two shows that he is really sorry that this happened -- and that he's looking forward to getting to Ohio as soon as possible.
