This will surprise and possibly amuse some readers but as a teenager I dabbled in the murky waters of Prog Rock! It didn’t last long; and while I haven’t listened to their music in aeons I still have a soft spot for Camel…..and they are touring the UK again in September 2018……perhaps I will see you there; I won’t be the one with a grey ponytail btw.
Here’s the Press Release.
Legendary prog-rockers CAMEL announce UK tour dates for September 2018 Performing the whole of their 1976 classic album Moonmadness plus other classic tracks.
Tickets on sale Friday 1st Dec at 10am.
Following the recent announcement that legendary prog-rock band Camel will bring their acclaimed live show to London’s Royal Albert Hall in Sept 2018, the band are happy to reveal that this will be preceded by an extensive run of UK tour dates. During what will be a very special run of shows – performed by Andrew Latimer (guitar, flute, vocals), Colin Bass (bass guitar, vocals), Denis Clement (drums), Peter Jones (keyboards, vocals) – the band will be playing the entirety of their 1976 album “Moonmadness” plus plenty of other classic tracks.
Upon release “Moonmadness” left its mark on the UK Top 20 albums chart, going on to become certified silver. In the Q & Mojo Classic Special Edition Pink Floyd & The Story of Prog Rock, the album was included in its list of the best “40 Cosmic Rock Albums” and voted no. 58 in the Top 100 Prog Albums of All Time by readers of ‘Prog’ magazine in 2014.
