Return of Camel

Post by Robin_Shadowes » Thu Mar 21, 2013 6:32 pm

Due to Andy Latimer's ill health, Camel has been on hiatus for about 10 years. But now I've read that the band will return to the stage in october to perform The Snow Goose.

Wow, this is truly great news. I had given up hope for Andy to recover as far as enabling him to hit the stage again. London is already sold out! More dates are being added to the schedule as per Camel's website:

I witnessed this show last year in Eindhoven (NL).
It was awesome !
Did you know the current line-up of Camel did a fresh re-recording of the Snow Goose album in 2013 ?
I like it a lot :cheers:

Yep, I got me a copy from their merchandise stand the night when I saw them in Mannheim.
I also like it a lot!

Apparently they will be back on the road this year. So far 2 festival appearances are confirmed, one in the UK, one in Germany.
Waiting for more dates to be announced...
