Niko Tsonev: is new lead guitarist for Steven Wilson Band

Niko Tsonev 
I am very honoured and proud to announce that I am the new lead guitarist for Steven Wilson Band (from Porcupine Tree fame).
The band is truly phenomenal:
SW-Vocals, Guitars, keys;
Adam Holzman (Miles Davis): Piano+Keyboards;
Marco Minnemann (The Arisctocrats): Drums;
Nick Beggs (John Paul Jones): Bass, Stick, Vocals;
Theo Travis (UK Jazz Sensation): Sax, Flute, Keys.
We are embarking on a world tour in April that will go through USA (West Coast), Mexico, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Brasil, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Denmark, The Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and end in Shepherd's Bush Empire in London, England (15 May).
It's a 2 1/2 hour Spectacle with massive visuals, Quad Surround sound-a monster of a show!
The album Grace For Drowning is available to purchase-do check it out-it is a majestic blend of Progressive Rock, Jazz Fusion and classic song writing!
The show in Mexico City will be filmed for a Blu-Ray/DVD release!!!
I'd be thrilled if you could make it to any of the dates!

  2. Nick - I saw you perform at the Fillmore a few days ago and must tell you that I was VERY impressed. That's saying a lot coming from me - I can be quite the critic and have seen my share of g players to be sure. Wailing guitars can NEVER be underestimated and you did that quite well!

    Have fun rubbing elbows with "the genius" and feeling the adulation from the crowd every single night. You guys deserve it too!
