Never miss another 'Caravan' show
Caravan + Garron Frith
Caravan, the quintessential precursors to the British Prog Rock movement, have announced a very special UK Tour for January 2013.
The UK tour will see Caravan celebrating the 40th Anniversary of what many critics regard to be the quintessential prog album of all time; 1973's "For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night". The band will perform a number of songs from the critically acclaimed 4th album, and the show will also include songs from "In The Land Of Grey And Pink", plus other songs spanning their dazzling career.
This event takes place at The Sage Gateshead, which has achieved Gold Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Caravan are considered by many to be the undisputed, unsung heroes of the British Prog movement. Often quoted as being one of the most formidable acts to emerge from the '60s progressive rock scene, over the years they have managed to achieve cult status and have maintained a passionate and diehard following.
Originally formed in Canterbury in 1968, Caravan were at the heart of the 1970s burgeoning Canterbury rock movement, and produced their own brand of "superior pop music, full of taste, craftsmanship and hard work" (NME) and packed venues worldwide. The current Caravan line-up includes Pye Hastings (1968 founding member: guitar, lead vocals), Geoffrey Richardson (joined 1972: viola, guitar, flute, vocals), Jan Schelhaas (keyboards), Jim Leverton (bass, vocals) and Mark Walker (drums, percussion).
