American melodic rock star Jeff Scott Soto kicks off his first full European tour since 2009 this week with four dates in the UK:
04.04.13 Belfast The Limelight
05.04.13 Birmingham The Asylum
06.04.13 London Camden Underworld
07.04.13 Rotherham Hard Rock Hell AOR Festival
Jeff will be touring with his current band line-up comprising; Jorge Salán (guitar), Fernando Mainer (bass), ‘BJ’ (guitar/keys/vocals) and Edu
Cominato (drums/vocals) and will be showcasing his current solo album ‘Damage Control’, as well as tracks from his solo and front-man roles across his entire career.
The dates will see JSS supported by none other than his guitarist Jorge Salan’s solo trio as well as an exciting new band from Athens named Danger Angel.
Jeff recorded vocals to one of Salán’s songs on the ‘Chronicles Of An Evolution’ album back in 2007, which is what led to bringing him into the JSS band, and Jorge’s latest album ‘Sexto Asalto’ (‘Sixth Assault’) will be available along with his other releases at each show.

Danger Angel came to Jeff’s attention back in 2009 when he was asked to participate on a track for their 2010 debut album. The band parted ways with their vocalist and brought in a more prominent vocalist named ‘MT’ to help them find a new direction and focus, recruiting Soto to produce their follow up album, ‘Revolutia’, of which Jeff was “beyond proud to be a part”. Jeff also sings most of the backing vocals on the album as well as sharing some lead vocals on the single ‘When I’m Gone’.

It is with great pride that Jeff is ‘presenting’ these two acts as a sort of ‘Soto-palooza’ roadshow in which he implores: “EVERYONE to be on time for a great night of music and many surprises throughout the show. it will be an evening of great rock ‘n roll, fun and memories so get there at the time the venues say to get there!!”
Jeff has most recently been in the public eye with the widely acclaimed release in February 2013 of the second album by the melodic rock ‘supergroup’ W.E.T., for whom he is the lead singer.
A newly published authorised biography of Jeff Scott Soto entitled Stand Up And Shout…The Story Of A Rock Star will be available to purchase during the tour on USB format. Author Frank Tunney states that: “I wanted this to be a biography that wasn’t based on ‘kiss and tell’ but doesn’t pull any punches and tells you everything you wanted to know. I hope every fan of Jeff Scott Soto and Melodic Rock will find plenty in ‘Stand Up And Shout…’ that will both surprise, delight and leave them wanting more.” Jeff himself comments: “…it has EVERYTHING I have done in it! There are a lot of inputs from many I have worked with in the business but one thing it’s not and that’s a tell-all…I don’t want an exploitation book out there, it’s not necessary, this is more of a chronicle of my life and leaves no stone unturned!”
