September 2019 - Britains Rare Guitar Show
Howie G was the headline act at Britains Rare Guitar Show, held at The Edge, Wigan. The show featured a number of personal collections of rare guitars as well as with custom designed axes from exhibitors. Phil Harris and his vintage Les Paul's also made an appearance accompanied unusually by Howie on vocals, without a guitar in hand!
The show will form part of a Sky TV programme due to be aired in early 2020. Howie G says "It was a great privilege to be asked to play at this show and I am very excited to return to people's TV screens early next year. It's been a while since my last venture into the world of TV where I featured in a BBC 2 Arena programme that gave an insight into the life of a tribute band. Into the Limelight is still available on iplayer I believe, if you want to see a much younger version of me!"
We will publish dates as soon as they are available.
