The Hamsters – Farewell Tour

  • Thursday | 16.02.12
  • 7.30pm
  • Band on the Wall, Manchester
  • £14 advance...


Retiring after 25 years together and here for one final Manchester show, the guitar, bass and drums trio The Hamsters have long been established as one of our premier live attractions. Although primarily playing their own brand of Rock, Blues and Americana, they’re also widely regarded as the UK’s leading interpreters of the music of JIMI HENDRIX & ZZ TOP – and will no doubt be featuring some tonight. Also, another popular feature of their two-hour performance will be the inclusion of a few acoustic songs! Guitarist/singer Slim has recently been featured in Guitarist magazine’s ‘Blues Guitar Heroes’ book.
