UK space proggers Gong and Ozric Tentacles have announced their very first joint headline tour. Both bands join forces to head out on a tour of England and Scotland in November and December. At the same time it will be the first full-band Ozric Tentacles tour in eight years. 

“Gong and Ozric Tentacles have a long history together, but this is our first fully fledged, psychedelic double-dip, joint headline tour," says Gong mainman Kavus Torabi. "Ever since The Ed Wynne Band played with Gong on our 2019 tour, we all agreed what a wonderful partnership this would make. I'm so happy that this will see fruition in November 2022. You can expect an outpouring of radiance and joy from both bands, it can't come around soon enough.”

“I recently toured with Silas Wynne as an electronic version of the band, but the opportunity to put together a full live again band after such a long hiatus is both daunting and exhilarating," adds Ozrics Ed Wynne. "One thing’s for sure though, this tour will be an amazing experience to share with all our fans.”
