Dragon have announced their Trilogy Tour which honours the three distinct ages that define the rise of one of Australia’s most iconic rock bands. They include The young years (from 1973 to 1979), the glory years (from 1982 to 1998) and the phoenix years (from 2006 onwards).
For the first time Dragon is hitting the road to commemorate these three ages and will perform over 25 shows in metro and regional areas between March and June 2014.
The current line-up of the band includes Todd Hunter, Mark Williams, Pete Drummond and Bruce Reid. Founder and bass player, Todd Hunter says they are methodical about the upcoming tour.
“We’re dividing it into three parts and delving into each of those three line-ups of the songs that came out then,” he says. “Closer to the tour we’ll get something on Facebook to see if anyone wants to request any songs.”
The ARIA Hall of Fame inductees have been playing great music for over 40 years and have no plans to stop.
“We want to keep playing anywhere,” says Hunter. “If you come to a Dragon show, expect to sing your heart out!” (CT)
