Pendragon have extended the scope of their 2016 tour schedule as they gear up for their first appearance of the year.

The band have announced new festival dates alongside their previous commitments, and add that there are more to come in the near future.

They’ll perform 1996 album The Masquerade Overture in full at headline shows, but not at festivals.

Pendragon say: “We have much more limited time at the festivals. Don’t miss out – London and Zoetermeer are both looking to be sold out in advance. Verona, Katowice and Wath are now sold out, so if you’re hoping to come to one of these shows get your tickets early.”

Support comes from Lifesigns’ John Young at some shows, and Magenta’s Christina Booth at others. Pendragon plan to film their show in Katowice, Poland, for a later DVD release.
