THE CHRIS SLADE TIMELINE was formed in 2012 to celebrate CHRIS SLADE’s 50 plus year career as a professional rock drummer since he started with TOM JONES at the tender age of just 16 years. Since then he has performed with all the greats, including of course ACDC, COUNT BASIE, TOM JONES, MANFRED MANN’S EARTHBAND (founder member), PAUL RODGERS and JIMMY PAIGE (The Firm), DAVID GILMOUR, URIAH HEEP, GARY MOORE, ASIA, MICHAEL SCHENKER and many more!…..
THE CHRIS SLADE TIMELINE take music from all of the above, so expect to hear all the hits you know plus plenty you forgot you love! Chris and the band are also working on some original music of their own in the set. The band have toured the UK and Europe extensively, continuing to delight audiences everywhere Their touring was interrupted for two years when CHRIS SLADE received the call from ACDC at the end of 2014 to return for the ROCK OR BUST TOUR.
THE CHRIS SLADE TIMELINE came back with a vengeance in 2017 to successfully extend their tour to France, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Belgium, Austria, Germany, Italy, Portugal and even Russia to perform at The MOSCOW OLYMPIC STADIUM for the KREMLIN CUP ATP World Tennis Tournament – The first rock band EVER to do this!!
