Related: CARAVAN

Caravan, the quintessential precursors to the British Prog Rock movement, have announced a very special UK Tour that kicks off on January 8th 2013 at London's prestigious Queen Elizabeth Hall, at the Southbank Centre.

The UK tour will see Caravan celebrating the 40th Anniversary of what many critics regard to be the quintessential prog album of all time; 1973's "For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night". Tickets for the tour go on sale Monday June 18th from the 24 hour box office - 0844 478 0898, www.eventim.co.uk.

Caravan, featuring original founding member and chief songwriter Pye Hastings (guitar, lead vocals,) and Geoffrey Richardson (Viola, Guitar, Flute) will perform a number of songs from their aforementioned critically acclaimed 4th album. The show will also include songs from "In The Land Of Grey And Pink", plus other songs spanning their dazzling career.

Caravan are considered by many to be the undisputed, unsung heroes of the British Prog movement. Often quoted as being one of the most formidable acts to emerge from the '60s progressive rock scene, over the years they have managed to achieve cult status and have maintained a passionate and diehard following.

Originally formed in Canterbury in 1968, Caravan were at the heart of the 1970s burgeoning Canterbury rock movement, and produced their own brand of "superior pop music, full of taste, craftsmanship and hard work" (New Musical Express) and packed venues worldwide.

The current Caravan line-up includes 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).
