Not that much needed to be said here.
It's Tyketto - killer band, great live and in this case, celebrating an utterly classic album - Don't Come Easy.
 
Here they perform the album back to back; notably leaving Forever Young as the logical closing track.
 
So, classic band, classic album, solid performances...all that's needed from me is the tick of approval for sound quality. And I'm happy to give it. This one is nice and raw, no overdubs in sight. Naturally I wasn't serviced with the DVD portion (or the CD for that matter, just digital), so I can't comment on that.
 
But the audio stacks up just fine thank you very much.

The only point - it's not a long set. I would like ot see a double "Greatest Hits Live" release one day.

Frontiers Music Srl, is pleased to announce the first live release by Tyketto, LIVE FROM MILAN 2017! The CD/ DVD, Blu-Ray, Vinyl, and MP3 (audio only) will be out on October 13, 2017!
Check out NOW a preview of the excellent show filmed at the Frontiers Rock Festival here: 
 
 
Danny Vaughn says: "It's been 25 years in the making. From the beginning our goal was to always put on the best live show we could possibly do. This, more than anything else, is what has kept the band alive in the hearts and minds of the fans. And the quotes that our fans have kindly provided for us in the cd booklet bear this out. We are a no frills, no gimmicks, warts and all, balls out rock and roll band. No more, no less. And our audience are family to us. They are just as responsible for how good this concert is as we are. Everybody brought their best game. All that's left to do is to sit back and enjoy!"
 
The line-up comprised of founding members vocalist Danny Vaughn and drummer Michael Clayton Arbeeny along with guitar wizard Chris Green, bassist Chris Childs (THUNDER) and ex-TEN keyboardist Ged Rylands, TYKETTO co-headlined “Day 1” of FRF IV and blew the roof off with their performance of the classic “Don’t Come Easy” album from back to front (yes, back to front, not front to back)! Cameras were there to capture every riveting moment and now, with great pleasure, Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to release this special performance on CD/DVD and Blu-Ray! Michael Arbeeny says: “If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a thousand pictures. Tyketto- Live in Milan 2017 not only brings the songs of DON'T COME EASY to life, but also shows the passion and excitement the band takes onstage at every performance. LIVE IN MILAN is simply five brothers enjoying the hell out of what they do.... with a few thousand friends stopping by to join the party.
 
Tyketto’s debut album, “Don’t Come Easy” is considered a landmark release amongst melodic hard rock albums of the late ‘80s/early ‘90s. While the band has continuously put out quality recordings over the years, fans and critics alike hold the debut album in especially high regard. So, it was with great pleasure that after releasing the band’s most recent studio album, “Reach”, Frontiers invited the band to play Frontiers Rock Festival IV in Milan, IT to not only play tracks from more recent releases, but to play “Don’t Come Easy” in it’s entirety to an adoring audience!

The completely bombastic, over the top, rocking intro to this new album had me leaping from my chair in search of my Don’t Come Easy Tshirt, but by the time I got to the door, it was over!
Still…that was the finest 37 seconds of melodic rock I’ve heard all year.
The riff does return a couple of times during the song, but the essence of the band’s new title track Reach is a pretty laid back duel electric/acoustic base. I do think it is a wasted opportunity to leave such a huge riff hanging, but the song grows big time and is the purest Tyketto song of the album.
 
The new album Reach sees a new lineup in play – Brooke St James and in comes Ged Rylands (keyboards, vocals), Chris Green (guitar, vocals) and Chris Childs (bass guitar, vocals) to join the two original members Danny Vaughn and Michael Clayton Arbeeny.
I must admit, I haven’t played the last album Dig In Deep too much since reviewing it, but I’m far more confident this one will be spun many more times.
 
It may not really be Tyketto as we know, but whatever you think, it’s the best Danny Vaughn project in some time. And Chris Green on guitar has brought some definite grit to the band’s sound. Tracks like Big Money and Kick Like A Mule rank amongst the band’s heaviest.
Circle The Wagons is another classic Tyketto ballad with all the angst you love from these guys.
 
Tearing Down The Sky is a nice old school dark, moody rocker; the acoustic ballad Letting Go is fabulous and Remember My Name also rocks.  The lush mid-tempo ballad Scream is closer to the early Tyketto sound while The Run starts slow and acoustic before building to a bombastic finish.

A couple of fillers and that lost opportunity for song of the year with the title track (it’s still going to be up there though) are my only complaints. The production is superb and the mix nice and clear. Chris Green is his usual brilliant self and adds so much to the material.
And as usual Danny Vaughn sounds like he hasn’t aged a day since 1992.

TYKETTO 'Reach' Out To Fans For 25th Anniversary

In celebration of the band’s 25th Anniversary, Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of TYKETTO brand new album “Reach” on October 14th.
 
After five years of relentless touring that included playing on some of the most prestigious stages on the planet, Tyketto (The Official) took their revitalized energy in to the studio in the spring of 2016. The sessions took place at the legendaryRockfield Studios in Wales (QueenRUSHOasis). Musically the band is truly at the top of their game, with their muscular brand of melodic rock delivered with the finest arrangements and awesome performances.
 
Lead vocalist Danny Vaughn comments, “Although we only had planned on recording ten songs for REACH, we were so pleased with everything, we decided to keep all twelve songs on the record. We unanimously decided on REACH as the title of the album, as it defines who this band is in 2016. We have a new energy, some incredible new members, and a fresh outlook toward the future. All of us have pushed each other beyond our limits to make what we feel is a pinnacle record in our catalog.”
 
Drummer and founding member Michael Clayton Arbeeny adds, “Many bands who have been out as long as we have feel they need to fit into a preconceived notion of what their fans expect to hear. Following in the footsteps of icons such as Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Prince, we have decided to expand our musical boundaries and introduce our friends around the world to Tyketto 2016. Rest assured that all the songs on REACH still carry the trademark melodies and choruses our fans have grown to love over the decades. The band is feeling stronger and performing better than ever and we can’t wait to share this music with the world.”
 
In addition to Vaughn and Arbeeny, the unstoppable 2016 lineup includes Chris Green (guitars and vocals), Ged Rylands (keyboards and vocals) and Chris Childs (bass).
 
A video for the title track, “Reach,” will be released soon. An 11 country tour to support the album commences in October. Dates below.
