Hawkwind have announced a special show which will take place at London’s Palladium next year.

The band will play a set with an orchestra on November 4, 2018, under the In Search Of Utopia – Infinity And Beyond banner – and tickets are now on sale via See Tickets (opens in new tab).

The band say in a statement: “We are looking forward to visiting the iconic London Palladium next November!

“Our new production In Search Of Utopia – Infinity And Beyond promises to be one of our most explosive, exciting and ambitious concerts to date!

“We will be joined by an orchestral accompaniment!”

Hawkwind will release a new live package titled At The Roundhouse on 2CD/DVD via Cherry Red Records on December 8.

The live set was captured during the band’s show at the iconic London venue in May this year – the first time in 40 years that Hawkwind had played The Roundhouse, and 45 years since they performed there for the Greasy Truckers Party album.
