WONDERWORLD is a new classic powertrio, featuring Roberto Tiranti (Labyrinth), Ken Ingwersen (Street Legal) and Tom Fossheim (Live Fire). Their new self-titled album comes out on October 1st. The band is currently also the permanent backing band for Ken Hensley (Uriah Heep), under the name; Ken Hensley & Live Fire.
Being a unique group of individuals from Norway and Italy, these warriors have teamed up in a way that only true Vikings and Romans can do… While recording the latest Ken Hensley album “Trouble”, the guys came up with the idea to do an album together as a classic rock powertrio, with no keyboards and a minimum of nonsense…just pure energetic hard rock. Just based on the rare chemistry of musicianship and friendship, the guys knew that this was something they had to do.

16th of October – Stopp Pressen, Oslo.
17th of October – Fjeldberg Marina, Fredrikstad.
