DR HOOK® Starring Dennis Locorriere - The Timeless World Tour - UK 2016 Dates announced

 

Things change. 

Trends in fashion, film and music are constantly moving to accommodate a new world.

One thing that hasn't seemed to change in over forty years is the love people have for the music of DR HOOK.

Personnel changes were bound to happen over time, but the music and spirit that audiences have come to expect whenever or wherever they see the words DR HOOK is still very much alive and well.

I'm now touring with a group of sensational new musicians who know how important it is to sing and play this timeless music just the way people want to hear it.

My desire is to bring those classic songs and wonderful sense memories flooding back to the forefront of the minds and music collections of people everywhere.

The times may have changed but I'm proud to say that if you want DR HOOK, live in concert today you can get it once again.

Right here!

I hope to see you all down the road somewhere!

Tour Dates - Timeless World Tour 

 

2015

DR HOOK® Starring Dennis Locorriere - The Timeless World Tour - Scotland 2016 Dates announced

 

Dr Hook was an internationally recognisable household name throughout the 70’s and 80’s and in many territories throughout the world, it retains that standing to this day.

Not for 30 years have the massive hits of Dr Hook been sung and played live by a band worthy of that title.

Until now.

Following the success of the Universal release Dr Hook Timeless (Executive Producer, Dennis Locorriere) in the UK, New Zealand and Australia,  Dennis Locorriere, who, from the very beginnings of Dr Hook to the height of their success, was the unmistakable voice of the band’s biggest hits and best loved songs, such as Sylvia's Mother, Cover Of Rolling Stone, Only 16, A Little Bit More, If Not You, Sharing The Night Together, Better Love Next Time, Sexy Eyes, When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman, Years From Now and many more, is touring the world with an incredibly talented band of musicians and singers, playing all of the hits.

This is something that Locorriere has not done since his Dr Hook Farewell Tour in 1985.

In fact, never before have these songs been recreated live to sound just as they did when they were originally recorded in the famous Nashville and Muscle Shoals studios with some of the best session musicians in the world.

Possessing one of the most recognisable voices in popular music, Dennis Locorriere and the band have already performed sell out shows in New Zealand, are headed to Australia in October/November 2015 and will be bringing this unique experience to the rest of the world.

Dennis says “I know that people love the Dr Hook sound on those original recordings and that's what we're bringing back to them, just the way they remember it and want to hear it performed live”.

Dr Hook™ Starring Dennis Locorriere - The Timeless World Tour, is the show Dr Hook fans have been waiting for.

DENNIS LOCORRIERE presents DR HOOK™ Timeless World Tour - New Zealand

Following the Top 10 success of Universal Records’ Timeless album, a two disc, 40 track collection of Dr Hook’s greatest hits and favourite album tracks personally chosen by Dennis Locorriere and released in the UK this year, the decision has been made to release the album in other countries including New Zealand in 2015. With these released Locorriere will be embarking on a World Tour to celebrate the ‘Hook’ legacy, and perform the songs how the fans remember them sounding with the voice who recorded them.

Dennis comments: "There was quite a long period of time when I shied away from performing many of the classic Hook songs. Although the band and our music was popular all around the world, those days weren't always the happiest of times for us and I felt I needed to put some distance between my past and the present. Now the years have flown by and several of the original band members have sadly passed away. I've since come to understand and appreciate just how much these songs still mean to so many people so when I was approached by Universal I welcomed the opportunity to become totally involved in the production of this compilation. I feel like now is the right time to hit the road to celebrate my history and give the fans an evening of music and entertainment they will love!"

The  SELL OUT shows  in New Zealand mark the start of the Timeless World Tour.

The Release of Dr. Hook TIMELESS

Talking about Timeless, Dennis Locorriere said "I went back and listened to every track the band recorded in order to select the 40 songs in the set. It was quite an experience and I can happily say that it rekindled my appreciation for a lot of what we'd left behind. Of course, none of us could have predicted back then that the music we were creating was destined to stand the proverbial test of time. There were so many sides to Dr Hook. I'm proud of this collection because it touches on all the facets of our band's music and is the first release to successfully accomplish that." Timeless reached the UK Top 10, receiving many 4 and 5 star reviews along the way and is about to be released in other countries around the world. The CD booklet also includes brand new liner notes by Dennis Locorriere.

EMI Releases "Hits and History: +DVD - This CD goes Gold!

(Capitol/EMI) **** 
DENNIS Locorriere is right on song when it comes to value.

Founder member and The Voice of Dr Hook, Locorriere offers a 23-track CD plus a further 14 in DVD format, as he traces the band's development from the late Sixties until they went their separate ways after the heady days of Sylvia's Mother, Cover Of The Rolling Stone et al, to the hard-up times which spawned the wickedly ironic album, Millionaire.

From the heart-wrenching (The Ballad Of Lucy Jordan) to the heart-warming (Years From Now) with bags of humour and masses of conviction, Dr Hook's songs are graced by the gloriously sexy, husky-tremulous voice of Locorriere, the working-class lad from New York.

Here he pays tribute to the musicians who made Dr Hook such a musically distinctive band. Most of the best songs are featured including When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman, Sexy Eyes, A Little Bit More, More Like The Movies and my gut-wrenching favourite, Carrie Me, Carrie. Is he just cashing in on old success? No, he is paying his dues to a motley crew of fine musicians and even finer songs. What the hell? Get Hooked!
