Phil Campbell‘s ALL STARR BAND kicked off another U.K. tour this past Friday (August 15) in Swansea. The group features Phil alongside his three sons: Todd, his eldest, and Dane from STRAIGHT LINES; and Tyler from THE PEOPLE THE POET.
“It’s good to play gigs in new places,” Phil told Birmingham Mail. “It wasn’t something we thought about a lot. We had a period of time in which we could perform and these were the places that were keen to showcase us.
“We play great shows in large venues and we play great shows in smaller venues,” he adds. “I love the smaller shows, personally. It makes a nice change, for sure.”
Phil Campbell‘s ALL STARR BAND last December completed a short U.K. tour. The setlist was full of classic MOTÖRHEAD songs infused with covers of some of Phil‘s favorite bands, including BLACK SABBATH.
Asked what fans can expect on the current trek, Campbell told Birmingham Mail: “It’s a party atmosphere. You can expect good quality cover songs from a great band with a great singer. There will be some MOTÖRHEAD songs, some other classics, and it’ll be a great experience for everyone.”
According to Phil, the ALL STARR BAND is looking to enter the studio in the coming months to record some of its own music. “We’ve been writing original material and, hopefully, by the end of the year, there will be some concrete plans on that front for the future,” he says.
Phil Campbell has been the lead guitarist in MOTÖRHEAD for 29 years. He has toured the world, sold millions of albums and headlined the biggest festivals. Phil has a passion for music and it is this passion that has led to the formation of PHIL CAMPBELL’S ALL STARR BAND.
