WAYSTED, the reunited semi-obscure mid-'80s British heavy metal outfit led by UFO bassist Pete Way (hence the spelling of the group's name),will embark on a U.K. tour in September. Joining Way in the group's lineup will be Fin on vocals, Paul Haslin on drums and special guest guitarist Robin George (ex-MAGNUM). Confirmed dates are as follows:
Sep. 15 - The Boardwalk - Sheffield, UK
Sep. 17 - The Bootlegger - Cleethorpes, K
Sep. 20 - The New Roscoe - Leeds, K
Sep. 21 - Trillians - Newcastle, UK
Sep. 22 - The Barfly - Glasgow, UK
Sep. 23 - The Funhouse - Alloa, UK
Sep. 24 - Henry's - Edinburgh, UK
As previously reported, WAYSTED parted ways with guitarist Chris George back in February 2006. "I've had a lot of great times but I now want to focus more on my own band and our continuing commitment with Marshall Amplification, our own live shows, and the various other projects I'm involved with," Chris said at the time.
WAYSTED's comeback CD, "Back from the Dead", was issued last year via Majestic Rock Records.
