Metal queen Lee Aaron is set to make her return to the UK in July, for a brace of shows as part of her 'Fire And Gasoline' tour. A staple of the rock press back in the late 1980s, the Canadian singer was a trail blazer in the women's rock movement.
Playing the Underworld in London on 16th July, and The Robin 2 in Bilston, Wolverhampton a day later, fans can expect the shows to be jam packed with well-loved classic and contemporary anthems like 'Barely Holdin’ On', 'Whatcha Do To My Body', 'Hands On', 'Metal Queen', 'Tom Boy' and 'Fire And Gasoline', as well Aaron’s soaring version of the Deep Purple classic 'Mistreated', taken from newly recorded 'Heavy Blues' album, slated for release later this year.
Speaking about the forthcoming album, Aaron says; "I am so excited about the direction of the new album. I grew up influenced by the blues, and the great blues-rock singers – Paul Rodgers, Robert Plant, David Coverdale, and Ian Gillan…I wanted to get back to the basics: great songs with great vocal performances.”
Lee's latest album 'Fire And Gasoline' was released in 2016 and met with high praise from fans and press alike, with the single 'Tom Boy' featured in Classic Rock Magazine's 'Tracks Of The Week', with the magazine stating; "She's definitely back back BACK!"
After taking more than a decade off to raise her children, 'Fire and Gasoline' launched Aaron back into the international arena. Along with shows across Canada and the UK, she won the “Back In The Spotlight” fan’s choice award from Music Express and received a permanent star on the Arts Walk of Fame in her former hometown of Brampton, Ontario.
