Tyketto are to play the Brook in Southampton Friday 2nd December 2011.

Formed 1987, U.S.A. Albums: 1991 Don’t Come Easy, 1994 Strength In Numbers, 1995 Shine, 1996 Take Out & Served Up Live History.

Tyketto was one of the best and most underrated radio friendly rock bands of the rock genre. They were never able to reach the massive success they so deserved, with their brand of hook heavy AOR sung with majestic vocals, mainly due to the Grunge explosion.

Formed in New York, New York by former Waysted vocalist Danny Vaughn, Brooke St. James (guitar), Jimi Kennedy (bass) and Michael Clayton (drums). The debut was an instant classic, sounding like a heavier version of Journey and Foreigner. The real talent was Vaughn’s wonderful vocals, as displayed on the debut single “Forever Young” and the powerful ballad “Standing Alone”. Following on from the release of the second album, Strength In Numbers, Danny Vaughn temporarily retired from the music business to spend time at home with his very sick wife. Tyketto recruited Steve Augeri (Journey), but the magic was lost.

A brief reunion in 2004 saw Tyketto reconnect with the whole of their original fan base, and since that date, Tyketto have played odd dates around the world, filling in the gaps between the individual members other working schedules. And the world took solace in two of the greatest records of a generation, until under the cover of darkness, surrounded by secret service agents who were sworn to take a bullet for any and all of them, Brooke, Michael and Danny got together in Las Vegas. Not only did they have a great time, but they also started writing together! In no more than one week, they came away with 8 new song ideas that they are all very pleased with, and that will form the basis of a brand new Tyketto album, their first with the original line-up since 1991’s Don’t Come Easy!

So, if you want to hear all the classics, along with some brand new Tyketto material, The Brook is the place to be on the 2nd December!
