Gong Add New Date to Fall Tour

Progressive/psychedelic rockers Gong have added a fourth date to their forthcoming UK tour at the newly refurbished Birmingham HMV Institute venue on Monday September 20th, shortly after the venue's grand opening night of Friday September 17th.

Gong first played at the Birmingham venue back in 1968, when it was known as the Digbeth Civic Hall. Support for all four UK concerts comes from very special guests Nik Turner's Space Ritual

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

After the success of last year's 40th Anniversary UK tour, and the critically acclaimed studio album '2032', GONG's other 2010 UK tour dates include Glasgow 02 ABC (Sept 9), Manchester Academy (Sept 10) and London HMV Forum (Sept 11)
