Tony Levin’s Stick Men announce European tour

Stick Men

Tony Levin’s Stick Men, featuring Pat Mastelotto and Markus Reuter, have announced a European tour which will take place next month.

The dates have been lined up in support of their latest album Prog Noir, which was released in 2016.

The shows will kick off at Bologna’s Bravo Caffe on March 1 and wrap up with a set at Malaga’s Cochera Cabaret on March 31.

Speaking previously about the album, Reuter said: “What’s unusual about Prog Noir is that we spent years composing it. Usually we get the ideas and quickly turn them into an album or start playing them in on the road.

“The imperative of a band like ours, that’s out on the road touring a lot of the time, is to have new material each year.

“But this time, the idea was to really refine the material, reject all but the best – indeed, there are some very nice pieces that didn’t make the cut – and create a really special album that might define our band in terms of where our journey has taken us.”
