Bloodshot Bill is starting his tour on August 2nd in Venlo at the Zomerparkfeest. This will be his only Dutch show on his European tour, so this is your chance to see him this time around.
Bloodshot Bill started playing in his hometown of Montreal, around 1998, with just a guitar and a stomp board. Since then, he has had over 30 releases throughout Europe, the USA and Canada – all places he has toured over the years. He was banned from entering the States for 5 years (2006-2011) and made his first “comeback” show in America at the Norton Records 25th Anniversary Weekend, performing alongside such legendary acts as Andre Williams, The Sonics & The South Bay Surfers.
His hair is slicked with his own brand of grease, “Nice ‘n’ Greasy”, and plays his guitar through his custom made Richtone Amp. He’s been in lotsa bands you’ve never heard of (Hubcaps, Guilloteens, Bootlegs). Won FME’s Coup De Coeur prize in 2007. Released records with Mark “BBQ” Sultan as The Ding- Dongs. Has been in several films & documentaries. Collaborates with King Khan as Tandoori Knights. Has been the spokesmen for a hamburger, The Degeue (“disgusting burger” translated). He travels alone as a one man band.
Catch him at the Vriendenpodium on August 2nd from 21:15 onwards.
