ONE of the most recognisable voices of rock will be heard in Bournemouth this month.

All The Way includes the newly released single, The Wind of Heaven, dedicated to all of those who have served their country. The song has received standing ovations worldwide.

Justin told the Echo: “I’m always so thrilled to have the opportunity to tour in the UK, particularly at this time in in my career when no one knows what the future holds.

“I’m bringing my song writing guitars from home on the road with me, so the gigs will have the feel and sound of my music room along with the vibe I was feeling as I wrote the songs.

“I look forward to singing and playing new songs and old songs, particularly Forever Autumn, which I only get to perform in my solo show, and The Wind Of Heaven from the forthcoming movie, and also to tell the real stories behind all the songs and the events. that surrounded them at the time
