Thursday 20th November – Manchester, Club Academy – Gong 2014 with special guests, Here & Now and Graham Clark and Mark Robson (The Magick Twins).
Friday 28th November – London, The Garage – Gong 2014 with special guest Steve Hillage, plus a trio of Mike Howlett, Steve Cassidy and Jerry Bewley, and an Andy Bole solo set.
Dave Sturt, Ian East, Fabio Golfetti, Kavus Torabi and a mystery guest drummer, with the full blessings of our Absent Alien Aussie Allens – Orlando and daevid, are hosting two very special events with invited guests to launch the new Gong album, ‘I See You’. Visual illumination from the one and only Jasper Johns in full-on Flute Salad Lightshow mode at both events.
Just when all was a deep glooming gig-wise as the planned Gong dates UK and European dates spluttered, flickered and went out one by one like light-bulbs blowing on an overloaded Christmas Tree circuit – there is a light that won’t go out – and it’s called Gong and now have two unique events to look forward to in November.
Come and fan the flames, a grand musical adventure awaits, this could be quite someting – and not a big white pixie suit in sight, unless you plan on dressing up. In fact we could all go as Bert Camembert – I’m Bert Camemberticus, No I’m Bert Camemberticus, No I’m…etc… in homage to daevid, who by the time of the gigs should be well down recouperation road after his radiation therapy.
Unfortunately Daevid Allen will not tour with Gong this year due to illness. He is currently undergoing radiation therapy, and will require an extensive period of recuperation. Please focus healing thoughts in his direction. You can find out more in the news and discussion forum.
The band will also play 5 French dates, see the details HERE.
