BJF MEDIA has issued as follows:
We are delighted to announce that guitarist Andy Midgley has joined I AM I full time and has been tearing it up on the road with the band on their Skid Row tour. He fitted in seamlessly from the start and is now bringing a whole new dimension to the band’s live show. Unfortunately, due to work and family commitments, Jake Thorsen decided to step down from his role in I AM I and we wish him all the best for the future.
The Skid Row/I AM I/Buffalo Summer tour ended in great style at a sold out Islington Academy on Saturday with all 3 bands getting up on stage to sing the final Skid Row song ‘Youth Gone Wild’, a fittingly raucous end to what was a 2 week blast of some damn fine rock n roll!
After this fantastic tour, I AM I will be making their first foray into Europe and head off into Italy at the start of May for a couple of shows before gearing up for their Download Festival slot. There are still a lot of dates to be announced both in the UK and Europe and these will be released as soon as they’re confirmed.
