The Story Of Guitar Heroes comes to Middleton Arena, Manchester October 30.

It journeys from the 1950s with artistes such as Chuck Berry and Hank Marvin from The Shadows, including gifted legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, through to modern-day players such as Brian May and Steve Vai.

Presented by guitar virtuoso Phil Walker, this show’s band uses more than 30 guitars to recreate and reproduce the sound and ambiance of each guitar hero.
