An Evening With Family: Family + Roger Chapman + John 'Poli' Palmer + Rob Townsend + Jim Cregan
For one night only, Roger Chapman, John 'Poli' Palmer, Rob Townsend and Jim Cregan will headline an exclusive reunion performance at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire.
Their first show together in over four decades, Family will bring back the nostalgic sights and sounds of folk, psychedelia, acid, jazz fusion and rock'n'roll that made them one of the most pioneering bands of the underground progressive scene in the late '60s and early '70s.
Having played prestigious London venues including the Royal Albert Hall, The 100 Club and The Marquee, this one-off show is set to be something special, playing songs from a career spanning, seven studio albums.
Roger Chapman said: "This is something that I've considered, and been constantly asked about, over the years. It's always been a question of timing. 2013 marks the 40th year since we did our last show - and we ain't getting any younger!"
This event takes place at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
