UK prog rockers IQ have announced a batch of live dates for both this year and 2025, including their traditional Christmas shows in Holland and London as well as their first show in France for over 20 years!

"We're delighted to announce that in September we will be returning to Paris," the band say. "We will be playing at Cafe De La Danse on Saturday 21st September and tickets will be on sale soon. We are all very much looking forward to playing in France for the first time since 2002 and can't wait to see you all.

The night before that show we will be playing a De Pul in Uden, The Netherlands. Tickets on sale now for that one.

As Christmas 2024 is just around the corner, we are happy to announce our Legendary Christmas Shows too."
