Fan-filmed video footage of legendary singer Joe Lynn Turner‘s (RAINBOW, DEEP PURPLE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) November 14 performance at Klubi in Tampere, Finland can be seen below.
Joe Lynn Turner spent much of 2009 and 2011 touring with OVER THE RAINBOW, which also features fellow ex-RAINBOW members Bobby Rondinelli on drums, Greg Smith on bass and Paul Morris on keyboards, alongside the son of the iconic RAINBOW founder/guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, Jürgen Blackmore, on guitar. In 2011, OVER THE RAINBOW took a “hiatus” so that members of the band could concentrate on their own projects.
Turner continues to be a multi-dimensional artist, never limiting his options and experiences in other types of music besides hard rock/melodic rock. He has been doing a lot of writing with artists who specialize in non-rock music genres with the goal of branching out, recording some of this material for either future releases or films. He’s also a superstar in Russia and other Eastern European countries as a solo artist and spent part of 2010 and 2011 touring those regions. Summer 2011 saw Joe Lynn Turner performing with the “Spectra All Star Rock Tour” — a diverse collection of artists best known for their hits in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. In early 2012, Frontiers released Joe‘s third SUNSTORM album entitled, “Emotional Fire”.
