With less than a couple of weeks to go until the UK’s biggest guitar event, The Guitar Show has announced a raft of exciting Live Stage guests and exhibitors. Set to be the biggest show so far, the 2023 event takes place on 25th and 26th February at Cranmore Park, Birmingham (a new venue for this year).
Among the highlights on the Live Stage will be legendary Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook (appearing in conjunction with Yamaha Guitars) and Peredur “Perry” ap Gwynedd (Pendulum, courtesy of Line 6). Ryan Roxie, whose CV includes Alice Cooper and Slash’s Snakepit, returns for his second visit to grace the Live Stage while Thunder’s Luke Morley is set to appear for a Rig Rundown, alongside a host of other UK talent.
With separate electric and acoustic guitar spaces, the exhibition halls promise to be busier than ever, featuring the likes of Marshall, Orange, PRS, Patrick Eggle, Ashdown, Takamine, Vox, Sheeran by Lowden, Faith Guitars, Yamaha, Line6, Chapman Guitars, L’Arrivee Guitars, Eventide, Focusrite/Novation, Godin, Dunlop, D’Addario, Danelectro, Monty’s Guitars, Rotosound, Bare Knuckle and many, many more. A full list of exhibitors is available at www.theguitarshow.co.uk
In addition, retail partners Fairdeal Music and Absolute Music will be offering visitors the chance to get their hands on some special show deals throughout the weekend.
For the first time at the show, West Midlands rock charity Metal For Good will be in attendance too. Having been awarded charitable status at the end of 2022, the organisation aims to use rock and metal as a force for good. They provide funding to incredible community groups that use music for positive social change and support groups which use music to improve wellbeing, address inequalities, and help young people to thrive.
Metal For Good can be found at stand 119, and will be raffling off some incredible prizes including a Marshall Code 25 Amp and a Laney Mini Amp amongst others.
