We welcome the return of Focus to our stage.

Fronted by founding member Sir Thijs Van Leer, they are best known for their hits ‘Hocus Pocus’, ‘House of The King’ and ‘Sylvia’, as well as critically acclaimed albums 'Moving Waves', 'Focus 3' and 'Hamburger Concerto'. After a comeback in the early 2000s, which resulted in the well-received albums 'Focus 8' and 'Focus 9', the band regrouped with a fantastic new line-up. Along with Thijs van Leer on vocals, flute and keyboards, back on the drums is famed Focus drummer Pierre van der Linden, who joined the group on their second album 'Moving Waves' in 1972. Internationally renowned for his rhythmic skills, Pierre remains a defining factor in the Focus sound, they are joined by guitarist Menno Gootjes and bassist Udo Pannekeet who has recently joined the line-up replacing Bobby Jacobs.

After the success of the album 'Focus X', which featured a Roger Dean painting on the cover, the band are due to release ‘Focus XI’ this year, so expect to hear new material from the album as well as old favourites.

Thijs Van Leer - Hammond-organ, flute and vocals
Pierre Van der Linden - Drums
