Prog/fusion/ rock trio The Aristocrats have announced their long-awaited return to the stages of Europe next summer. If you are starved for some trademark Aristocratic musical mayhem, then check out the first batch of dates for the “Defrost” UK/Europe Tour in June 2023.
The band says: “It’s been far too long since our last shows in the U.K. and Europe, some of which were documented in our live album “FREEZE! Live In Europe” 2020 just before the big chill on live shows. So now it’s time for the “Defrost” tour to bring us back, and we can’t wait to finally play shows again for our fans who have been waiting patiently for Aristocrats concerts to return. This first batch of June 2023 dates will be our only shows in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Switzerland, Portugal, Israel and Bulgaria on this tour, but more European dates in additional countries will be announced in the coming months.”
