Now Cornerstone finished their meanwhile sixth England tour - a very, very successful one, in retrospective. Highlight was of course the CAMBRIDGE ROCK FEST together with famous acts like THE ANIMALS, MAGNUM and HAZEL O’ CONNOR - for many visitors Cornerstone was one of the best bands of the festival! Whereas the concerts in Nottingham, Beeston and Boston were kind of a “homecoming” - the band already played there a couple of times - the band conquered new territories in the North in Bolton, York and Wakefield. In the “Duchess” in York wellknown acts like MIDGE URE (ULTRA VOX), JOHNNY MARR and the UK SUBS appeared in the past… A positive aspect of the tour was the media presence of Cornerstone, they had interviews with BBC Radio and a few local radio stations, moreover they were present in the print media with fullpage articles, for example the BOSTON STANDARD or the NOTTINGHAM POST with full-page features. Conclusion of the tour: 10 concerts, 14 radio-interviews/ features, 7 newspaper announcements, 79 sold CD’s and 34 sold T-Shirts during the concerts. Well done! | More Info...

Luckily, Cornerstone protected their name as trademark years ago, which was a wise decision afterwards: on the Isle of Weight in England a local band operated with the same name till recently, which is of course prohibited. The management of Cornerstone asked the band politely to change the name accordingly because of the trademark. In the end, the story was a big headline in the English media – and so bassplayer Michael Wachelhofer as representative of the group suddenly found himself doing interviews on the Isle of Weight and other radio stations… Dave Roberts, main organizer of the CAMBRIDGE ROCK FESTIVAL, also pointed out his opinion with a nice statement about the band: "Cornerstone are a great supporter of the Cambridge Rock Festival and were due to play at the April 2012 CRF Spring Edition, but that event was cancelled due to extremely adverse weather. The band did play last week at the main Cambridge Rock Festival with a superb set, they have a good following amongst our crowd and are a very professional group of musicians and nice people too. I have no doubt they will be keen to protect their brand and image so their letter is understandable". Meanwhile, the band changed their name appropriately. | More Info...
