GONG

‘I See You’ Tour 2014

GONG has never stopped shape shifting in its 46 years of touring – from it’s origins in the Parisian revolutions of ‘68, through the Virgin years to it’s newest incarnation.

Unorthodox, unpredictable it defies showbiz gravity and yet is adored by it’s multitude of fans of all ages. What is its secret?

Rolling Stone says: Gong consistently renews its personnel, transforms its image and evolves musically without losing any of its zany psychedelic yet timeless musical personality.

Yet as Steve Hillage says: “Nobody ever leaves Gong”

Now with the 2014 release of its thrusting pulsating new album I See You, the new generation of GONG musicians effortlessly demonstrate how the cutting edge of 2014 elegantly interweaves with the GONG TRADITION beloved of the old schoolers.

Here is the class act of 2014:
DAEVID ALLEN at 75 carries the banner for the original vibe with the irresistible ORLANDO ALLENon drums while new guitarist KAVUS TORABIex Cardiacs leads the charge into the future. Add to this the virtuoso IAN EAST ‘WIND’on horns and flutes, the sexy sinuous bass lines of DAVE STURT(the sonic manipulator) and the soaring psychedelic guitar lines of Brazillian FABIO GOLFETTIand you have a 21st Century supergong

THIS IS A BAND YOU HAVE TO HEAR LIVE  TO REALLY GET THE MAGICK! If you miss it, it will miss you!
