Camel have announced that they’ll play eight dates in the UK next year.

Earlier this month, the band revealed that they would play at London’s Royal Albert Hall on September 17. Now they’ve added a further seven shows to that month, where they’ll perform their classic 1976 album Moonmadness in full.

A statement reads: “During what will be a very special run of shows – performed by Andrew Latimer, Colin Bass, Denis Clement and Peter Jones – the band will be playing the entirety of their 1976 album Moonmadness plus plenty of other classic tracks.”

Tickets will go on sale from 10am on December 1.

Camel were recently confirmed for next year’s Night Of The Prog XIII which will take place at the famous Loreley Amphitheater, Germany, on July 13-15, 2018. They’ll be joined on the bill by Big Big Train, Riverside, Mystery, Anubis and Gentle Knife.

Prior to the newly announced shows in the UK, Camel will play several dates across mainland Europe.
