IAN HUNTER and The Rant Band UK Tour  - October 2010 The Times ­ ŒHunter, dressed in skinny black jeans and a little black jacket, was in awesome shape. Lithe and cocky, he glided around the stage behind his huge shades, still the complete rock¹n¹roll star¹  Following recent shows at the Edinburgh Picture House and London¹s Barbican Theatre (where Ian was joined on stage by Mott The Hoople cohort and Bad Company guitarist Mick Ralphs for storming performances of ŒRoll Away The Stone¹ and ŒAll The Young Dudes¹), Ian Hunter and The Rant Band have confirmed a six-date UK tour for October 2010. The tour will give fans across the UK a chance to see Ian Hunter performing songs from his illustrious back-catalogue - both solo and Mott The Hoople classics.    UK Tour October 2010: 2nd - Manchester Bridgewater Hall 3rd - Glasgow Old Fruitmarket 5th - Brighton Komedia 8th - Milton Keynes The Stables 10th - London Union Chapel (acoustic show) 11th - Newcastle Journal Theatre 12th - Birmingham Town Hall 14th - Bristol O2 Academy   Tickets available from www.seetickets.com <http://www.seetickets.com/> 08700 603 777       IAN HUNTER has produced a matchless repertoire of music combining homage, honesty and killer hooks. He was one of the toughest and most inventive writers of the early 70s paving the way for punk rock with his thought provoking and gritty songs. As a solo performer he has also succeeded with an eclectic catalogue of superbly intelligent albums and a dedicated following, responsible for instantly recognizable classics such as ³Once Bitten, Twice Shy², ³Cleveland Rocks² and many more.  For both his solo output and work with Mott The Hoople, Ian Hunter has been cited as a huge inspiration by numerous artists including The Clash, REM, Oasis, Blur and Primal Scream. Currently signed to New West Records, his thirteenth solo album, ŒMan Overboard¹ was released in May 2009.       Sunday Times - 'On Man Overboard, Ian Hunter turns in an 11-song set that is astonishingly vital and puts to shame many toilers half his age. With that sandpapered voice and an ability to bend a melody to its own peculiar will, Hunter is as sharp and focussed as ever.'     2009 also saw the long-awaited reunion of Rock and Roll heroes MOTT THE HOOPLE. Fronted by Ian Hunter they played five Sold Out shows at the Hammersmith Apollo to a rapturous reception from both fans and critics alike, the audiences roaring along to ŒAll The Young Dudes¹  and the Hunter-penned hits, ŒAll The Way From Memphis¹, ŒRoll Away The Stone¹ and ŒThe Golden Age Of Rock Œn¹ Roll¹. Mojo ­ Œthis was the best reunion concert, and arguably one of the best concerts in its own right, ever. Unique, thrillingly, deeply moving, unlikley and completely and utterly rocking¹
