Steve Hillage has announced a run of new live dates for the Steve Hillage Band for October this year. The new dates are preceded by a series of three dates in June which had recently been announced.
Hillage played his first live dates with the Steve Hillage Band after a 40-year break last year, playing to sell-out crowds and positive reviews.
The new line-up features Hillage and partner Miquette Giraudy alongside members of Gong. Prog writer Mike Barnes called them "surely the best ever Steve Hillage Band," and Hillage's set will draw from his classic 70s albums L, Green, Fish Rising and Motivation Radio.
Support will come from Gong member Kavus Torabi's project with Steve Davis and Michael J. York, The Utopia Strong.
