As part of the Graham Bonnet Band​'s 2017 "The Book" tour in Japan, a three-night special engagement and reunion of Alcatrazz​ was presented much to the delight of the Japanese hard rock faithful! On December 7, 2018, Frontiers Music srl will release "Parole Denied - Tokyo 2017", a special documentation of these special shows on 2CD/DVD and Digital formats.
 
Founding Alcatrazz members, Graham Bonnet (vocals), Jimmy Waldo (keyboards) and Gary Shea (bass), reunited after 33 years for a unique series of shows in Osaka, Nagoya, and Tokyo, Japan in March 2017. For the special occasion, the band was rounded out by Mark Benquechea (drums) and Conrado Pesinato (guitars), both from the Graham Bonnet Band.
 
In addition to this unique farewell performance captured via audio and video, Alcatrazz raided the archives and added some unreleased bonus tracks taken from the original sessions recorded in 1985, including one song, “Emotion”, with a young Steve Vai on guitar.
 
Additionally, the Graham Bonnet Band has announced a U.S. tour where they will be performing the first Alcatrazz album "No Parole From Rock N Roll" from front to back along with the other hits from their and Graham's catalog.

GRAHAM BONNET BAND Announces Live CD/DVD/Bluray Out July 7

Friday, July 7, 2017

GRAHAM BONNET BAND ANNOUNCES LIVE ALBUM & HOME VIDEO, "LIVE...HERE COMES THE NIGHT" AVAILABLE ON CD/DVD & BLU-RAY ON JULY 7TH ON FRONTIERS MUSIC SRL.
 
Legendary rock vocalist Graham Bonnet is back with a new live album and home video captured during his acclaimed performance at Frontiers Rock Festival III in Trezzo (Milan, Italy) on April 24, 2016.
 
Accompanied by a stellar band featuring founding member Beth-Ami Heavenstone on bass, South American guitar sensation Conrado Pesinato on lead guitar, and Mark Zonder (known for his work with Warlord and Fates Warning) on drums, Bonnet masterfully delivered a thrilling “Best of” set which included songs from his stints with bands such as Rainbow, McAuley Schenker Group, Alcatrazz, Impellitteri, and of course his solo material too.
 
Bonnet says: "It's been a very long time since I last released a live video, 33 years to be exact, with Alcatrazz. Myself and the band were very excited to film and record our performance at the Frontiers Rock Festival for a live album and video and are very happy with the final result!”
 
Bonnet has a powerful and distinctive vocal style and, indeed, a distinctive image – preferring to let the music, rather than the conventional heavy metal look, do the talking.
 
The Graham Bonnet Band has spent the last two years touring regularly around the world and this past winter, released his latest successful release, “The Book.” With the band and Bonnet fine tuned from all their touring when they got to Frontiers Rock Festival, this stellar set that was captured there makes for a new live album that will blow GBB (and heavy rock fans in general) away!
