Ian Hunter and the Rant Band Tour 2016

By all accounts 2016 has been a tough year with the loss of so many iconic musicians. However, there are still some musical ‘Legends’ out there that defiantly refuse to “go gentle into that good night.” One such artist is seventy-seven year old Ian Hunter. Hunter was the lead singer of 1970s’ band Mott The Hoople, who are best known for the song “All the Young Dudes.” In the wake of the dissolution of Mott The Hoople, Ian Hunter would embark on a successful solo career from his 1975 self-titled debut right on through the 80’s and 90’s. Not content to sit back and look fondly on a long and storied musical legacy, Hunter has continued to look forward and release some of his strongest work into the 2000’s. At this point, considered one of the finest songwriters of the classic rock era, you would think Ian Hunter would be ready to step back and spend his days lounging someplace warm and sunny. And you would be wrong… 2016 has seen Ian Hunter release Stranded In Reality, a limited edition 30-disc Anthology box set containing rare and previously unreleased recordings and film, as well as all of his classic solo albums including some expanded Anniversary Editions. And in the same month, Hunter dropped Fingers Crossed, his first new album in four years. Already being hailed as holding its own with some of his best solo releases, Fingers Crossed, delivers ten strong new songs including “Dandy,” an homage to David Bowie. Co-produced by Hunter and Andy York, the record features his talented and long-serving Rant Band.

Hunter and the Rant Band have been out on the road taking the new songs to the masses. The current US leg of the tour is quickly winding down, and closes out at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC on October 28th. Click here for tickets and info.

Don’t sit on this one. There is still time to catch a true legend continuing to rock with a swagger that defies his age.
