Tony Vincent

after attending college and recording two hit albums in nashville, and then two years touring with a rock band, tony vincent took the performers risk and headed for new york. the plan was to gain more experience, to further his fledgling recording career. instead, he found himself leaving the big apple almost as fast as he arrived, hitting the road once again this time, with the national touring company of RENT, the pulitzer prize-winning broadway musical by fellow new mexico native, jonathan larson. (a year with the broadway company followed.)

after RENT, vincent was off to london after being cast in a cutting-edge film of jesus christ superstar --returning to new york yet again, to appear in the broadway revival of "superstar" in the lead role of judas iscariot. after a successful broadway run, vincent started development work for a new record spending considerable time collaborating with other writer-producers in los angeles, new york, woodstock, sweden and london.

while taking time to write in london, vincent was invited to audition for brian may, roger taylor and ben elton and was soon cast for the lead role of galileo figaro in the rock band queen's upcoming world premiere production of WE WILL ROCK YOU. vincent spent two years with the show playing to sold-out audiences at virtually every performance.

once WE WILL ROCK YOU became a solid hit in london, producers invited vincent to open the first american company in a new permanent theatre at the paris las vegas resort.

after a year with the vegas production, vincent is now back in new york city and in the process of working on a new record.

American Music Channel is “Giving Back” through creating philanthropic campaigns that align charitable organizations and artists to make a difference in our world.

 

By : Andrew Vaughan

As the whole world begins to focus on The United Kingdoms capital city the evangelical music fan in me has ben reminded of the feature I wrote here a couple of years ago on a few of London’s rock and roll hotels. A lot of questions followed, mostly music fans and tourists wanting more specific information.

So, with the Olympics here and with thousands of you heading to London for the sports fiesta, this American based “Londoner” doesn’t want anyone to miss out on a huge opportunity to discover some of London’s greatest musical landmarks. So the next few Music City 411 blogs are going to see me waxing lyrical about the music heritage of my hometown. And for anyone visiting for the first time and wanting to spend some time exploring London’s musical history I’ve highlighted some safe and top-rated music-flavored hotels to make your trip as easy and rewarding as possible. I’ve stayed, eaten and drank in all the places I talk about and traipsed every street been in every venue mentioned and ridden every bus train and taxi recommended.

So let’s start where it all started. The Beatles!
