(104.3 WOMC) -- Normally, I don’t like to talk about shows that are not coming here but today is an exception. Mott The Hoople has added a fall leg to their U.S. tour.

This gives me great excuse to talk about that great band again, and since many of you saw their show in April at the Fillmore, here goes.

While being mostly known for their Bowie written hit, “All the Young Dudes,” Mott the Hoople was a rockin' rock band years before. They even played the Eastown.

If you liked the Stones, Humble Pie, or the Faces, you probably dug Mott.

Once “Dudes” became a big hit, they tweaked their image a bit and rode that Glam rock wave while still delivering knock out shows at places like Ford Auditorium.

The Fillmore show in April delivered big time. It was great to hear all those great songs, in a row, and done well.

They are calling the tour Mott the Hoople '74, because the guitarist, Ariel Bender, joined in '74 when Mick Ralphs joined Paul Rogers in Bad Company.

So if YOU are going to be traveling this fall, or you have a friend in one of the lucky cities,
