Gig Of The Week: Progression 2.0
WHO: Progression 2.0 – The New Breed Tour
WHEN: Tuesday, March 1
Sponsored by Classic Rock Presents Prog, this tour features three of the currently fastest rising stars among the young UK progressive bands: Touchstone, Jurojin and Enochian Theory.
Says Touchstone singer Kim Seviour: “These bands are all changing prog’s direction, but keeping the ethos”.
“We’ve had a lot of fans asking when we’re going to play up there,” adds Touchstone keyboard player Rob Cottingham of the chance this tour gives the band going to the north of England and into Scotland. “So it’s fantastic that we’re finally going to be able to do it. Playing Sheffield again is going to bring back a lot of memories. We did one of our first shows there, supporting Arena.”
“It’s a really cool line-up,” says Jurojn guitarist Nc Rizzi. “Even though we’ve all got some common ground in prog, we each take that in a completely different direction.”
“This tour is a challenge,” adds Enochian theory singer/guitarist/keyboard player Ben Harris Hayes. “But hopefully we’ll win over some new fans”
After Sheffield, the tour continues to:
Wed. 2: Glasgow Classic Grand
Thu. 3: Manchester Moho Live
Fri. 4: Bristol Tunnels
Sat. 5: London Islington O2 Academy
