Mr. Big are embarking on their latest tour. The band members decided it was time to close their chapter after their original drummer and co-founder Pat Torpey lost his battle with Parkinson's disease in 2018. The tour, aptly titled The Big Finish, will have one of its stops in Prague.

Mr. Big are "pop metal" singer-songwriters. The seeds for the group's formation were sown when bassist Billy Sheenan - often called "the Eddie Van Hallen of bass" - left David LeeRoth's solo band in 1988. Shortly thereafter, he began putting together a new lineup consisting of former Racer X guitarist Paul Gilbert, drummer Pat Torpey and singer Eric Martin, who had released a couple of obscure solo records in the mid-'80s. In 1989, the newly formed quartet Mr. Big signed a record deal with Atlantic and released their eponymous debut the same year. Although the album found a warm reception among musicians, it failed to cross over to mainstream rock audiences in America. Across the ocean in Japan, however, Mr. Big was an immediate success.

On their second album, 1991's Lean into It, which included the melodic psychedelic-rock track Green Tinted Sixties Mind and a pair of ballads that became major singles: the number one hit To Be with You and Just Take My Heart, the quartet greatly expanded their horizons. And now they'll be stopping by Prague's Roxy club with these 90s hits.
