Actor, martial artists and musician Steven Seagal comes to Liverpool this Sunday.

Having honed his craft over the years, sharing his love for the blues and jamming all over the world with the most prolific blues legends in the industry,including BB King, Steven Seagal’s Blues Band come to the O2 Academy.

Many of the songs from his first album “Songs from the Crystal Cave” featured in his 2005 film “Into the Sun”.

The album even featured music legend Stevie Wonder. It is claimed that the album style is “outsider country-meets-world music-meets-Aikido.”

In 1999 Seagal was awarded a (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) PETA Humanitarian Award.

A professional mixed martial artist, the 62 year old is a seventh degree black belt in Aikido, which roughly translates as: “The Way of unifying (with) life energy” or as “the Way of harmonious spirit” in English.

Most famous for his roles in 1992 film “Under Siege” which grossed $156,400,000 worldwide and 1995 “sequel” “Under Siege 2” $104,324,083 worldwide.

Other films that his songs are featured in include Fire Down, Below and Ticker. He has also played the role of martial arts instructor, choreographer and coordinator in some of his films.

The father of seven is not the first actor to turn his hand to music. Scarlett Johansen, James Franco and wrestling legend Macho Man Randy Savage have ventured into the music industry.

Steven’s second album released in 2006 was entitled “Mojo Priest” and featured the late blues legends Louisiana Red and Bo Diddley.

The action hero toured the album across America playing songs such as “Slow Boat to China” which is almost nine minutes long.

Steven Seagal’s Blues Band will be performing on the July 20th at the O2 Academy, with support from The Viper Kings and Xander & The Peace Pirates.
