Legendary rock vocalist Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple) will headline a benefit concert for the families of the recently fallen Dallas police officers on Sunday, August 21 at the Curtain Club. Also on the bill are Millennial Reign, Three Lane Road, Bezel and Gun Hill. Tickets are on sale now at Prekindle.com for $20 with all proceeds going to the families of the fallen officers.
In a career that spans nearly 30 years and includes over 60 album credits, Joe Lynn Turner remains one of rock and roll’s most distinctive, soulful and expressive vocalists. Perhaps best known in the U.S. for his time with Rainbow, Turner co-wrote and/or sang on Rainbow singles that helped define the melodic rock genre including “Stone Cold,” “Street of Dreams” and “I Surrender.”
In 1989, Turner joined Deep Purple and the band released Slaves and Masters, an album that Deep Purple’s Ritchie Blackmore still regards as his favorite since reuniting with the band in 1984.
More recently, Turner has been a singer/performer in the Raiding the Rock Vault Show in Las Vegas and continues to play for large audiences at festivals throughout the world. In 2015, Turner received Italy’s Legend of Rock award and a special award in Crimea for the promotion of peace and outstanding contribution to world art.
