PAUL DI'ANNO Announces Run Of UK Shows With Special Guests GYPSY'S KISS

Paul Di’Anno has announced a short run of UK shows this August, kicking off at Brudenell in Leeds on August 21. The run will then hit The Waterloo in Blackpool, the sold-out Stone Dead Festival Party, The Patriot in Crumlin, and then finish up at The Vic in Swindon on August 26.

Paul recently completed tours of Australia and South America taking in over 20 cities with most shows sold out.

Joining Paul as very special guests on four of the August dates will be Gypsy's Kiss, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. They also have a very interesting pedigree with Iron Maiden's Steve Harris being one of the original founding members of the band along with David Smith. This show is a real treat for any die-hard Maiden fans!

Di’Anno says, “It’s going to be really cool to have my mates Gypsy's Kiss on tour with me for these UK shows in August. They're a fantastic band, and it'll be great to hang out with David Smith, who originally formed Gypsy's Kiss with Steve Harris back in 1974. Bring it on!"

David Smith, founding member of Gypsy’s Kiss, adds, “We couldn’t be more delighted to be touring with Paul and his band. He’s a good friend and an amazing singer and frontman. We go back a long way - from the same area, same school, and support the same football team! This is truly going to rock, can’t wait!”

21 - Leeds, Brudenel (Tickets)
22 - Blackpool, Waterloo (Tickets)

BraveWords Records founder "Metal" Tim Henderson: "How excited were you to hear that Paul Di’Anno was back with a new band called Warhorse?! I was so happy to see him back in action again and getting his life back to normal. The beast roared back and BraveWords Records is honoured to have him and his new band as the inaugural signing to the label. There are so many great things brewing behind the scenes, so stay tuned!”

Paul Andrews, a British singer better known by his stage name Paul Di’Anno, his nearly half-century-long career began explosively with Iron Maiden, when with the EP The Soundhouse Tapes, and the albums Iron Maiden and Killers forever cemented the foundations of heavy metal. With timeless hits like "Iron Maiden", "Remember Tomorrow", "Running Free", "Phantom Of The Opera", "Killers", "Wratchild", "Murders In The Rue Morgue", "Purgatory", etc., they influenced numerous musicians and bands and were responsible for the creation or development of many subgenres in metal music.

Paul is known as one of the most productive singers, who has a huge number of albums and other releases behind him, either as a solo artist or a member of bands such as Gogmagog, Di’Anno’s Battlezone, Praying Mantis, Killers, Rockfellas or Warhorse. In all his incarnations, Paul always knew how to find a way to the fans, with numerous hits, uncompromising singing, which is confirmed by his successful career and furious live shows around the world.

For the last eight years, Paul faced serious health problems that almost ended his career, but thanks to his loyal fans and his strong will to overcome the disease, Paul is on a big world tour again, and he recorded a new album with his new band Warhorse. This icon of heavy metal with the heart of a punk rock rebel never spared himself in his life, but he always gave everything for music and fans, which is why they have followed him faithfully for almost fifty years.

BraveWords Records have agreed to physical distribution deals with Plastic Head in Europe and MVD in North America.
