Gong Announce Three Exclusive Concerts

04/08/2010
.
After the success of their 2009 40th Anniversary UK tour and the critically acclaimed album "2032", Gong, the legendary progressive/psychedelic rock band will return to the UK in September 2010 for three exclusive concerts in Glasgow, Manchester and London, support for these concerts will come from very special guests Nik Turner's Space Ritual.

The forthcoming UK concerts will once again reunite core GONG members, including original founding member Daevid Allen(Guitar & Lead Vocal), Steve Hillage (Lead Guitar), Gilli Smyth (Space Whisper and Poetry), Miquette Giraudy (Synthesizer), Chris Taylor (Drums), Dave Sturt (Bass) and Ian East (Sax and Flute).

Described as exhilarating, compelling and other worldly, GONG's 2009 "2032" album represented the first time Hillage has recorded with original Gong founder, Daevid Allen, since 1974's "You" album.

"2032" continues Gong's famous 'Radio Gnome' album trilogy which includes the psychedelic progressive rock albums "Flying Teapot" (1973), "Angel's Egg" (1973), and "You" (1974). "2032" is the year that the Planet Gong makes full contact with the Planet Earth - a major new chapter in the continually evolving Gong mythology.
