Some gigs were pulled at the last minute due (supposedly) to poor ticket sales. Hence the uncertaincy over their occurrence.


There is one gig referenced in 1976. I suspect this was a one-off impromptu 'jam' at a London club rather than a proper gig.

13th September 1976Fabulous Poodles, Speakeasy, London England (Ian Hunter and Ritchie Blackmore)


In 1977 Ian toured the UK with his band the Overnight Angels, with punk band The Vibrators as support. He then played a handful of European dates. On several of these dates he shared the bill with John Cale - I understand Cale played first (although he wasn't officially the support).

I believe this is now the definitive list of Ian's European tour dates. All gigs after Berlin were pulled, the reason being the tour promoter. It seems he was useless, and didn't pay either the band or the bus company. In short, he did a runner, leaving the band in Berlin. The promoter's father, who was also the bus driver, took them to the airport where British Airways changed their flights so they could get home the next day. Some gigs before then had been rescheduled, sometimes at short notice. A gig was planned in Munich, for example, but was pulled with little warning - I know of one fan from the UK who made the trip only to find the venue no longer did gigs...


There were no gigs in 1998.


In 1999, Ian made a short appearance (two songs) at the Bruce Henderson Charity Ball in New York City in January. In April he toured the UK.

At most gigs Ian was allowed three songs of his own (it is a Ringo tour, after all), but at some gigs he did four (Cleveland Rocks, Still Love Rock n Roll, All The Young Dudes being the "regulars" and Irene Wilde being the extra number).

Ian was well received at most gigs, with Dudes usually bringing the house down. He seemed to enjoy himself immensely, judging by the gig reports posted on the mailing list.

Mon 3rd July 2017Mouth Of The Tyne Festival, Playhouse, Whitley Bay England

A few West Coast dates took place in September 2017. These were supposed to be followed by three dates in Japan, but these Japanese dates were cancelled at short notice by the Japanese promoter due to "the threat of war" (caused by the situation with North Korea). There were further dates in Germany, Italy and Spain in October. Finally there were a few East Coast dates in November. The City Winery, Boston date was cancelled at (very) short notice because the refurbished venue wasn't ready. The Boston gigs were rescheduled to 10th and 11th February 2018.
