Originally planned for 2021 but postponed due to the pandemic, acclaimed musician Steve Hillage has announced a brand-new tour for March/April 2023 including a date at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town.

Virtuoso guitarist, techno futurist, prog visionary, sonic wizard: From acid rock to acid house, musician Steve Hillage has been on an incredible, transcendent journey for the past 50 years. An integral figure in the Canterbury Scene and a key member of 70s cosmonauts Gong, Steve has gone on to forge a successful solo career that incorporates several ground-breaking albums as well as being one half of electronic project System 7. His CV includes collaborations with The Orb and Todd Rundgren as well as being producer of the Simple Minds post punk Krautrock inspired double LP Sons And Fascination/Sister Feelings Call.

Now Steve and members of Gong are returning to the stage for the first time in 3 years on a 12 date UK tour, playing cuts from his cherished solo albums Fish Rising, L, Green and Motivation Radio – plus a few surprises and never before played live tracks taken from Steve’s illustrious catalogue.

Steve and synthesiser-playing partner Miquette Giraudy are honoured and grateful to once again have the members of Gong playing as the Steve Hillage Band:- Kavus Torabi – Guitar, Vocals : Dave Sturt – Bass, Vocals : Fabio Golfetti – Guitar, Glissando Guitar, Vocals : Cheb Nettles – Drums, Vocals : Ian East – Sax, Flute

Playing support will be The Utopia Strong, the adventurous electronic-based project of:- Kavus Torabi – Guitar : Steve Davis – Modular synths, Programming : Michael J. York – Multi-instrumentalist, Programming.

Hillage’s links to the Glastonbury Festival are well documented, but 1979 was a very significant appearance as Steve was an integral member of the team who saw the Glastonbury Festival reborn that year. The Steve Hillage Band headlined the first night of the festival – Friday 21st June – and now for the first time, this most epic of sets is finally available to hear for the first time.
