Renassiance announce US and UK tour dates

Renaissance have announced US and UK tours in support of their Live At The Union Chapel DVD.

They’ll play four US shows next month ahead of a nine-date run of shows in the UK in April. Curved Air will be main support on the UK dates.

Live At The Union Chapel was filmed at the group’s April, 2015, show at the London venue and sees the band performing hits including Carpet Of The Sun, Ocean Gypsy, Mother Russia and Ashes Are Burning. It’s comes with LPCM stereo and Dolby Digital surround audio tracks and a Blu-Ray version is planned for later this year.

The Union Chapel show was part of Renaissance’s first tour in more than 30 years. Ahead of that tour, vocalist Annie Haslam said: “It’s our goal to chronicle this journey by filming and releasing a live concert DVD.

“We particularly look forward to capturing our performance at the Union Chapel venue, where bands like Procol Harum have filmed great-looking and sounding DVDs.”
