Mott The Hoople ’74 is, well, the three living members of the Hoople circa 1974—frontman Ian Hunter, guitarist Ariel Bender and keyboardist Morgan Fisher—joined by a handful of other musicians. The band just toured the U.S. for the first time in 45 years (on the previous jaunt, Queen was the opener, making its stateside debut). Since Mott The Hoople has been a MAGNET fave since you your dad was still in short pants, this tour was a big deal for us. These photos are from the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, Pa., by Chris Sikich. BTW, fellow longtime MAGNET faves the Dream Syndicate opened the show.
Catch the Hoople on tour in the U.K. starting tonight at the Academy in Manchester.
