.
Iron Maiden's Nicko McBrain will be the master of ceremonies for 'Turning It Up To 11: A Tribute To Jim Marshall,' which will take place at Wembley arena on Saturday 22nd September 2012.

The event which celebrates the late Jim Marshall and the 50th anniversary of Marshall amps will feature Tim 'Ripper' Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth), Glen Hughes (Trapeze, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath), Joe Satriani (Chickenfoot), Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society), Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert (Mr Big), Whitesnake's Doug Aldrich and Brian Tichy, The Cult's Billy Duffy and Slipknot/ Stone Sour front man Corey Taylor. There are also further big names to be announced.

Talking about the event Nicko McBrain commented; "This is truly a celebration of a British Icon - Marshall. Beyond doubt, Jim Marshall shaped the sound of rock music for eternity! Words cannot describe how pioneering Jim Marshall was ! We're bringing together beyond-legendary artists for a true celebration of Jim's life. There is no better way to commemorate Jim's amazing life than putting on the loudest event ever! Expect pure rock n roll madness amplified to the max by Marshall! "

Talking about the much loved "Father of Loud" Joe Satriani commented: "He created the tone we all cherish in rock: big, bold, and beautiful and in your face. With every power chord, soaring melody and searing lead we will continue to salute his legacy!"

A sentiment echoed by Yngwie Malmsteen who commented:" Every day I plug in the studio or stage he will always be there"

Doug Aldrich added; "Jim will shine on forever... He was maybe the single biggest influence in music.."

And Glenn Hughes said " A brilliant man..and dear friend...rock musos worldwide will miss him dearly..."

With Zakk Wylde concluding: "God bless father Marshall... The saying goes leave this world a better place than before you got here, he did".

Starting life in a drum shop in Hanwell as the brain child of Jim Marshall, the Marshall amp was designed to help create richer sound for guitarists who were unable to afford the expensive, US Fender amplifiers. With a small team of skilled musicians, Marshall produced his first amplifier in 1962. The development of the "Marshall Stack" a few years later initiated Marshall's ultimate rise to the forefront of the music instrument industry. Fifty years after Jim Marshall sold his first JTM45, four generations of guitarists and fans revere the name. Marshall Amps have defined the sound of rock and are prized by rock guitarists of every age and style.

For half a century Jim Marshall OBE and the Marshall team shaped the sound of rock on stage and in the studio with artists as diverse as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Pete Townsend, Gary Moore, Eddie Van Halen, Eric Johnson, Slash, Zakk Wylde, Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Frank Zappa, Richie Kotzen, Trivium and countless others.

Paul Marshall, Head of Artist Liaison and part of the Marshall dynasty commented; "Family has always been at the heart of everything Marshall does and all Marshall owners are very much part of the 'Marshall Family'. It has been so heartening to see the amazing tributes paid to Dad over the past few weeks. He certainly made a huge impact on the world! This event aims to be a fitting tribute to Dad's life and we are honoured so many artists want to get involved!"

Celebrating over five decades of guitar amplification, Marshall Amps have become synonymous with Rock Royalty. To celebrate Jim Marshall's amazing life, the company plans a very special event as it welcomes a stellar line-up of artists and presents an impressive array exhibits for what promises to a never-to-be forgotten event. Visitors at this one-day commemorative festival of sound will be met with a concentrated blast of full-on Marshall magic! The entire weekend will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pay homage to a beloved British icon Jim Marshall.
