Lazuli in UK return

Lazuli have confirmed a UK tour to follow the success of their visit in November.

The French quintet, who launched fifth album Tant Que L’Herbe Est Grasse a year ago, return for four shows towards the end of 2015, in association with Prog and The Merch Desk.

Tour manager Nellie Pitts says: “Those fortunate enough to see Lazuli last time were enchanted – not only by their eclectic music, but their friendliness and enthusiasm after their dream of playing in ‘the land of the Beatles’ came true.

“Their appeal goes far beyond prog. Showstopper Nine Hands Around A Marimba is like nothing else you’ll ever see played live.”

A London show remains to be confirmed. Alan Reed has been confirmed as special guest at the band’s Liverpool show.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
