Pat Travers Live at the Iridium NYC 2012 out this month
It was a July day of unparalleled rock ‘n’ roll awesomeness for Pat Travers, one he remembers well to date. The year was 1978 and the location was at the Oakland Coliseum, where roughly 55,000 fans were attending for an unforgettable day that saw the newly formed Pat Travers Band play together with AC/DC, Van Halen, Foreigner, and Aerosmith. The band had spent much of the year on a tour that would be released in 1979 as “Live! Go for What You Know,” arguably his best and certainly one of the most acclaimed Hard Rock Live albums of all times.
In 2012 Pat Travers Band made a comeback with a new lineup - which saw the return of drummer Sandy Gennaro behind the skins - and a new record “Can Do”, released the following year. A great release which saw Travers and his band playing better than ever! In the tour that lead up to the release of that album, he picked the right venue for this celebration of a new live CD, "Live at the Iridium NYC".
