Blackmore’s Night, the six-piece band led by legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Candice Night, will perform at the Regent Theatre in Arlington, Mass., on August 14, 2016, at 7:30 PM. All tickets are reserved seating and available now by clicking HERE.
Formed in 1997, Blackmore’s Night is a true musical and spiritual collaboration between Night and Blackmore. The two met in 1989 when Deep Purple challenged Night’s then radio station to a charity soccer match. In 1993, she sang on Rainbow’s “Difficult to Cure” tour. They co-wrote four songs for Rainbow’s Stranger In Us All album and they formed Blackmore’s Night two years later. They continue to play in castles, opera houses, old theaters and UNESCO sites around the globe.
In addition to Blackmore and Night, their band of Minstrels includes Bard David of Larchmont (keyboards), Earl Grey of Chimay (bass, mandolin, rhythm guitar), Troubadour of Aberdeen (drums, percussion), Lady Christina (harmony vocals) and Scarlet Fiddler (violin).
Blackmore’s Night is an eclectic musical Renaissance rock group. Their unique blend of Renaissance themed melodies and some medieval instrumentation is blended with the contemporary sounds of guitars, keyboards, violin and percussion. They transverse time to take you on a musical journey without the stress of today’s tech world into a musical adventure that spans centuries of musical styles, combined with the ethereal vocals and charming legends and fairytale lyrics of Candice Night. It is a fun-filled concert suitable for all ages.
Fans are encouraged to come dressed in garb or Renaissance costumes to add to the festivities of the special evening. Arrive as a peasant, knight, jester, king or queen and you’ll fit right in.
Since releasing their debut album, Shadow of the Moon, in 1997, Blackmore’s Night has released nine more studio albums. Their most recent All Our Yesterdays spent 12 weeks on the Billboard charts.
