Gong Autumn Tours - UK, France, Netherlands, Switzerland and Japan
[updated Wed 18 Jul]
Catch the Gong waves as they rise, one day the ocean will be flat and mirror-like reflecting just the moon....daevid allen, Gilli Smyth, Orlando Allen (drums), Fabio Golfetti (guitar), Dave Sturt (bass) and Ian East (sax'n'flute) are touring Europe, the UK and Japan this Autumn. Surf's up.
All the gigs are now listed in the gig section. You can pre-order tickets from the venues and the usual ticket agencies.
Accomplished drummer/producer Orlando is of course Gilli and daevid's younger son. They have for years been keen to include him as member of Gong and see now as THE time. Fabio Golfetti, leading light of the Invisible Opera Company of Tibet (Brazil), is a very polished guitarist in smooth Gilmouresque prog mode and of course a glissando guitar practitioner of long standing. And many of you will have experienced the entertaining, expert musicianship of Ian East and Dave Sturt on respectively, wind instruments and bass, on the 2009-10 Gong tours and know that those chairs within the band are in more than capable hands.
Gong's mission statement remains rampantly and receptively what it always has been - that is, just whatever you perceive it to be...be-do..be-do..be-doo. Be there and Bee - "Oh what a beautiful thing to be a grown-up busy, busy-busy bee..."

Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, Orlando Allen (drums), Fabio Golfetti (Invisible Opera Company of Tibet, Brazil; guitar), Dave Sturt (bass), Ian East (winds).
Japan is confirmed, and all dates are in, though many more details are awaited for the Eurozone. Stay tuned…
