Nik Turner Prepares for US Tour; Responds To Hawkwind Controversy


Co-founder of pioneering space-rock band Hawkwind, Nik Turner, will be hitting the road in support of his highly acclaimed new CD titled 'Space Gypsy'. Starting in early October, the tour features nearly 30 stops in the US as well as a handful of additional shows in Canada, making it Turner's most extensive tour of North America in decades! Turner will be joined on stage by the same musicians who brought 'Space Gypsy' to life: Nicky Garratt of famed punk band UK Subs, Jurgen Engler of German industrial band Die Krupps, Jeff Piccinini of '70s punk icons Chelsea, and explosive drummer Jason Willer.

Nik Turner was a member of Hawkwind during what has been considered their most commercially successful and critically acclaimed period for the band from 1970 to 1976. He wrote/co-wrote some of the group's most popular songs such as "Brainstorm" and "Master Of The Universe". Hawkwind's 4th and possibly most popular album 'The Space Ritual Alive in Liverpool and London' was recorded in 1972 (released in May 1973). Reaching #9 in the UK album charts and #179 in the Billboard Top 200, the double-record was recorded during the tour to promote the band's 'Doremi Fasol Latido' (third) release. The Space Ritual show attempted to create a full audio-visual experience. The performances featured dancers, lightshow by Liquid Len and poetry recitations by Robert Calvert. Turner is excited to bring his version of the historic show to the US shores, recreating the magic once again!
