Frontiers Records will release Great White's live album, 30 Years – Live From the Sunset Strip, on February 22nd in Europe and February 26th in North America.
To mark its 30th anniversary on March 22nd, Great White celebrated the only logical way – on stage. In a nod to its early days, Great White returned to the infamous Sunset Strip, where a storied past of music’s biggest fans are fused into the walls of the Key Club. Great White delivered its entire repertoire to a packed house, pining for the band’s raw energy and cheering its illustrious history track after track.
The Southern California blues hard rock band debuted with a Don Dokken / Michael Wagener produced EP in 1983 and later on were signed by EMI for 1984’s self-titled debut album. Since then Great White has achieved worldwide success, encompassing sales of over six million records. They received a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song 'Once Bitten, Twice Shy' and earned a double platinum certification for the album, …Twice Shy.
It’s the soulful, blues-based signature sound that turned songs like 'Face The Day', 'Rock Me' and 'Save Your Love' into international hits. The late 80's were boom years for the band, marked by non-stop touring with some of the biggest bands of the era including stints in Europe and Japan. Great White recorded two more albums for Capitol - Hooked, which was certified gold and Psycho City.
With a line up featuring Co- Founder Mark Kendall, Audie Desbrow, Michael Lardie Scott Snyder and new singer Terry Ilous (former XYZ), a natural frontman blessed with bluesy-heritage rock tone, Ilous fits the band like a glove. Great White’s biting guitar riffs, contagious rhythm section and newfound energy is ready to honor its past and create the next chapter. 30th Anniversary Live is just one night – but the music is timeless.

'Lady Red Light'
'Face The Day'
'House Of Broken Love'
'Save Your Love'
