Rainbow Rising - The Ultimate Classic Rock Experience

The World's no1Tribute to Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow and Deep Purple. The band have performed on festival main stages alongside Thin Lizzy, the Stranglers, Motorhead, the Levellers, Hawkwind, Suzi Quatro and many more as well as headlining at major rock venues across the U.K.

The two hour + show includes all the Rainbow hits including 'Since You've Been Gone'' I Surrender' 'All Night Long' as well as album classics such as 'Stargazer' 'Gates of Babylon' 'Tarot Woman'. Also Deep Purple classics such as 'Smoke on the Water' 'Speed King' 'Black Night'

Rainbow Rising were formed back in 1996 by virtuoso guitarist Roy Chudobskyi. His aim was to not only recreate the unique Rainbow sound but to also capture the visual spectacle that was Rainbow live on stage. To achieve his goal he put together a group of musicians who, like himself, possessed not only immense musical talent, but also an almost fanatical interest in the phenomenon that was Rainbow.

The band perform live all the classic Rainbow tracks and more besides, drawing from the entire Rainbow back catalogue and featuring the material produced by every legendary line-up of the band. The sheer attention to detail given to the act of recreating the live Rainbow experience is evident in every aspect of the band's performances. From guitar smashing, to stunning vocals, thunderous percussion and bass to dazzling keyboards and of course unmistakable Blackmore guitar work.
