Hawkwind's Nik Turner Plans Special Space Ritual Event
The concert is set to take place on March 10th at the Echoplex in Los Angeles and Turner, who was a cofounder of Hawkwind, will be performing their famed 1973 live album "The Space Ritual Alive in Liverpool and London" in full during the show.
"I'm really excited to bring Space Ritual back to America after all these years and to bring the excitement, madness and four-dimensional experience to the fans," says Turner. "The show will create the astrological sounds, colors, experimentations, dimensions and innovations from the original Space Ritual days of the early '70s for today's audiences."
Turner will be leading the band on vocals, flute and sax, and will be joined by Jurgen Engler, founder of German band Die Krupps on guitar, audiogenerator and synthesizer; Nicky Garrett, founder of the UK Subs, on guitar; and Geoff Miles, of the 1970's punk band Chelsea, on bass.
