Allan Holdsworth is widely regarded by fans and contemporary musicians as one of the 20th century’s most prominent guitarists. He is one of a handful of musicians who has consistently proven himself as an innovator in between, and within, the worlds of rock and jazz music. He has played with, among countless others, Soft Machine, IOU, Tempest and jazz legends Bill Bruford, Stanley Clarke and Billy Cobham.
Many of music’s best-known instrumental masters cite Holdsworth as that rare and shining voice— a legendary player who continues to push the outer limits of instrumental technique and the electric guitar’s range of tonal and textural possibilities. Musician Magazine placed Holdsworth near the top of their 100 Greatest Guitarists. An inductee of Guitar Player Magazine’s Hall of Fame, Holdsworth is a five-time winner in their readers’ poll. Band on the Wall is delighted to welcome this guitar legend to Manchester for a spellbinding evening of great music.
