Caravan's For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night 40th Anniversary Tour

Caravan will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of one of their landmark albums with 10-date UK tour early next year.

The tour kicks off on 8th January 2013 at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Hall, at London's Southbank Centre.

The tour will see Caravan celebrate the 40th Anniversary of what many critics regard to be one of the most influential British prog albums of all time; 1973's "For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night".

Caravan, comprising original founding member and chief songwriter Pye Hastings (guitar, lead vocals) will perform a number of songs from their aforementioned critically acclaimed 4th album.

The concerts will also showcase songs from the album "In The Land Of Grey And Pink", plus other classics spanning their dazzling career.

Caravan are considered to be one of the most formidable acts to emerge from the '60s progressive rock scene. Originally formed in 1968, Caravan were at the heart of the 1970s burgeoning Canterbury rock movement. They produced their own brand of "superior pop music, full of taste, craftsmanship and hard work" (NME) and packed venues worldwide.

The current line-up features 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).
