(Prog) Rick Wakeman has announced four releases to follow live DVD Starmus, featuring Brian May, which was launched last week. The additional titles include three DVD/CD sets and an all-new orchestral CD, with launch dates between August 5 and November 25.

The flurry of activity comes as Wakeman gears up for a tour with Yes offshoot Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman - who are working on their own new material.

The Starmus DVD, on sale now, was recorded at the Starmus Festival on Tenerife, where Wakeman and Queen guitarist May collaborated with the English Rock Ensemble for an astronomy-themed show.

On August 5 a special edition of classic 1925 Lon Chaney movie Phantom Of The Opera is released, featuring a specially-commissioned Wakeman soundtrack. The restored and remastered film is signed by the keyboardist and comes in a special edition featuring Chaney photographs and reproduced lobby cards.

A package centred on Wakeman's 1980s TV show Gastank arrives on September 16, containing some of the impromptu performances delivered by Wakeman, his house band and special guests including Steve Hackett, Andy Fairweather Low and Phil Lynott. It's the first time all episodes of the show will have been made available, along with a CD of the musical skits. A signed, limited-edition box set comes with a shirt, book and reproduction AAA pass.
