Amazing news !!  i just read some posts on their facebook page

There is going to be a celebration tour to Kingston Wall tour through Finland early spring 2019 with a 50th anniversary tour dedicated to one of their founding members Petri Walli - he would have been 50 this coming spring. 

It looks like most of the venues sold out immediately, seeing as KW are legendary in Finland. There are a couple of venues that may still have tickets should anyone find themselves in Finland this coming March.

This is more than a tribute in itself but more of a partial reunion and musical partnership. 

The lineup includes the Kingston Wall Bass guitarist Jukka Kalevi Jylli and drummer Sami Kuoppamäki. 

They are teaming up with the Von Hertzen Brothers for this tour and billed this tour as....  

KINGSTON WALL by Jylli & Kuoppis & Brothers Von Hertzen

This sounds like it will be a once in a lifetime experience and i will be looking and hoping for a live album of this tour to be released later in 2019." rel="nofollow -" rel="nofollow -

So the highly anticipated Kingston Wall series of gigs kicked off Feb 25 in Tavastia Finland

For those interested here is a link to a Finish magazine (Riffi) article." rel="nofollow -

From the sounds of the article, it was a very special night and kicked off a tour that will last well into the spring and then after some additional summer tours/events. 

They will also be supporting Rickie Blackmore's Rainbow on June 6, 2019, as well as quite a few festivals through summer, fall , and winter of 2019" rel="nofollow -" rel="nofollow -

Personally, i just cant wait to hear or watch anything from these events, and will be watching out for them as they get released.
