Live Music / The Revival Tour 2012

Some of you my friends have heard of The Revival Tour, some of you haven’t, so let me tell you something about it and why every music lover should experience this wonderful musical event.

The Revival Tour is about a bunch of great musicians/songwriters hitting the road together and bringing people a real musical experience. It’s about sharing music in an old fashioned way,  a collaboration of great artists who come to our towns to remind us what real music is about.

Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), whom you’ll never miss on The Revival Tour, came up with the idea of this event about 5 years ago, and it’s had a great success in America, UK and Europe since, gaining more and more followers each year. There have been many great artists involved in the past, including Frank Turner, Dave Hause, Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem or Dan Andriano of The Alkaline Trio…

But this years line up has been as outstanding as the previous ones. The Revival Tour came to Brighton and I was there, happily enjoying and absorbing each moment of it.  Chuck Ragan was joined by his good friends – Joe Ginsberg and Jon Gaunt, as well as an American singer/songwriter Cory Branan, Australia’s Emily Barker, Canada’s Jay Malinowski (Bedouin Soundclash) and Texan Rocky Votolato. Each one of these artists put on a beautiful performance and each one of them brought something original to this event. They joined each other on the stage, wholeheartedly sang each others songs as well as their own, and gave the audience an unforgettable and truly unique experience. Their humble and gracious approach to people was inspiring and it was really good to see, that there are artists out there, who care to come out and give us – music lovers, something to remind us why we actually love music.

True words written by Jonah Bayer: ‘There really is no other experience like the Revival Tour.’

  1. Nice blog. Loved the show in Brighton (think I might have been standing next to you) so much that I’m going to see it again when it’s in Portsmouth next month 🙂

    1. Yeah! I think I remember you! You took a few videos, didn’t you? I saw them on Youtube, very nice! I am also going to see them again in Portsmouth with a friend who’s going to do a review for another (better known) site. I kind of talked him into it as I think the word needs to be spread. These guys are amazing.

  2. Was a little surprised that there weren’t more people there, but I’m trying to spread the word too. I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t find out about this tour earlier as I love The Gaslight Anthem and would have loved to have seen Brian Fallon on the tour last year. Have you seen the full show from last year that is available on a German tv stations website? I also love Frank Turner so hope he plays on this again here at some point in the future.

    1. Yes, sadly I missed it last year too. Could you please send me the link to the show? I’m a big fan of Brian and Frank too, hopefully they will do it again one day. But I love this years line up and I will never miss the Revival Tour again in the upcoming years! It made such a great impression on me.
