Davy Knowles and Back Door Slam Back On The Road
The band has been touring non-stop since the album's release in June, most recently making its Australian debut with shows in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney following a stop in London and a triumphant homecoming to Knowles' native Isle of Man (in the Irish Sea between Belfast and Liverpool).
To coincide with the U.S. fall tour, superstore Best Buy is hosting a series of guitar clinics presented by Best Buy Musical Instruments at which Knowles, the 22-year-old singer, songwriter and guitar prodigy, will perform live in the store and discuss guitar playing, highlighting his learning curve as an artist, his style and his equipment. He will also touch on what it's been like to work with guitar masters such as Peter Frampton, Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, Warren Haynes and Paul Reed Smith during his short, but meteoric career. The first of the guitar clinics took place on Sunday, November 22 at the Best Buy in Ann Arbor, Michigan, followed that evening by the band's appearance at The Shelter in Detroit.
