Welcome 2018
.
Thanks  again, to all my friends and fans, for your support during 2017! 
*****
2017  kicked off with Lucifer's Friend playing some shows Germany,
which we always enjoy very much
*****
This was followed by a solo stint in Bulgaria with Bulgarian band BTR
*****
May saw the continuation of the  filming for the  Bulgarian TV documentary series
 "John Lawton presents..." which took place in Kazanlak this time ,
where world famous rose oil is produced.
*****
One of my highlights was no doubt catching up with
 Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov at the Houses of Parliament in Sofia.
The time before that, I had met him when he was still Mayor of Sofia...
*****
After Lucifer's Friend had played Sweden Rock this year, I was invited to do a guest
appearance with the Sweden Rock Symphony Orchestra,
performing newly arranged hard rock and metal classics.
What a great show that was..
Other guests included Joe Lynn Turner, Peter Tagtgren, Joacim Cans & Dan McCafferty
*****
 The traditional "July Morning" concert on the 1st of July at sunrise,
was  held  in Tutrakan , Bulgaria again this year,.
This was the 11th year that I have been participating!
 The sunrise was as spectacular as ever,  overlooking the Danube,
attended by an incredible Tutrakan audience!!
As every year , the whole show was  televised live , by Bulgarian national TV .
*****
While the 1. July  evening concert  was held in Troyan, Bulgaria this year...
a very hot summers rock night event..;-)
*****
Lucifer's Friend continued playing Festivals all during the summer of 2017, with a
 tour of Poland in autumn 2017, marking the very first LF concerts in Poland ever..
*****
The writing for the new studio album "The Last Stand" continued during 2017,
followed by the recording of the album in the UK and Germany.
The release of the new album is scheduled for  spring 2018..;-))
