Mr. Big announce the first 2023 tour dates and new drummer

The American band Mr. Big announced their return to the stages with a farewell world tour and in 2023 the band will perform in Asia next July and August. The European, South American and North American dates will happen in 2024 and will be announced soon.


The group that is formed by Eric Martin (Vocals), Billy Sheehan (Bass) and Paul Gilbert (Guitar) also announced their new touring drummer Nick D’Virgilio. He replaces the Pat Torpey, who died back in 2018 at the age of 64.

“We wanted to do a proper farewell, and this seems like the right way to do it,”Billy Sheehan said. Guitarist Paul Gilbert also talked about the shows, saying: “We’re in the process of making sure we come up with a suitably big entertainment extravaganza to go along with our music. And since our music has resonated so wonderfully in places all over the world, we’re going to play in as many of those places as we can.”

The vocalist Eric Martin also commented on the tour, saying: “If we were in the movie business, we’d just put it all up in lights and say, ‘Welcome to ‘The Big Finish’!’ Seriously, I’m glad we’re getting a chance to do it all onstage together as Mr. Big again and raise a flag to everything we’ve done as a band over the years.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
