Pendragon "The First 40 Years" Book and CD Set!
After selling out of the first run of a special collectors’ edition commemorative 40th year anniversary Book and CD pack in a record time, the second pressing can now be pre-ordered from the Merch Desk!
Pendragon: “It’s taken two years to collate, re-record, mix, find the pics, get new artwork (and a hundred other things). So, here is what you get:
Approximately 11inch square (just slightly smaller than a vinyl sleeve) this 32 page hard back book is truly a celebration of Pendragon from 1978 to the current day. Cover artwork from Simon Williams (The World/Window of Life/Masquerade Overture etc.) incorporating images throughout the history of the band in his very own recognisable style, inside there is 32 glossy pages of photo memories throughout the years and a few words from Nick, Peter, Clive and Vinnie and of course 5 CDs.
The discs are: “Live at London” 3 discs from last November’s sold out 40th Anniversary show at 229 The Venue. The London show featured a return to the Pendragon drum stool for Nigel Harris to perform some of the early songs plus some saxophone from original and co-founding member Julian Baker. When mixing the live discs Karl Groom (Thin Ice Studio) said that this is one of the best recorded live gig atmospheres he’s ever heard, and we think you’ll agree that’s it’s really very special indeed.
Plus: 2 completely re-mixed (not just re-mastered!) versions of “The World” & “Men Who Climb Mountains”, which more or less “bookends” the career of the band. Both re-mixes will feature re-recorded drums from current drummer Jan-Vincent Velazco as well as updated and additional keyboards on “The World” recording.”
Pendragon “Love Over Fear” New Album and Tour 2020!
In February, March and April 2020, Pendragon will be embarking on a large European tour promoting the forthcoming album “Love Over Fear”. Tickets for the concerts are available from the venues or via Pendragon official website. The news on the new album will follow soon!
Clive: “It is with pleasure I am thinking about the next year’s Pendragon tour. Even though it is a long one, it is bound to be a fun time, especially with so many venues to revisit and good old friends to meet again. Now, I should probably start rehearsing!”
"The Lost Journals" Thank You, Cheltenham!
On August 31st 2019, “The Lost Journals” show was performed at the Cheltenham Playhouse in front of the full theatre! The piece, consisting of the combination of the songs from Clive’s three musicals: “She”, “Alchemy” and “King’s Ransom”, was a full theatre production featuring the biggest cast so far. The Caamora Theatre Company rose to this new challenge with professionalism and passion, offering the audience a taste of Clive Nolan’s musical genius in a nutshell.
Clive: “So here we are... after nearly a year in the making ‘The Lost Journals’ show is done and performed! Thank you so much to all who took part in this one. Despite a few microphone problems, this night ran extremely smoothly. I think everyone did an amazing job and really brought “The Lost Journals” to life. I know a lot of hard work went into this show, and I really appreciate all the efforts... well done guys!”
