Arena – neo-prog-rock giants founded in 1995 by two celebrities of the scene: Mick Pointer (ex-Marillion) and Clive Nolan (Pendragon, Shadowland, Strangers on A Train, Caamora). Together with guitarist John Mitchell (Frost*), bassist Kylan Amos, and with the  charismatic Paul Manzi (Oliver Wakeman Band) on the vocals, the band return with a brand new studio album “The Unquiet Sky”.
 
The release of their eighth studio album will be followed by a tour scheduled for March and April. For the list of gigs go HERE.
 

 
Clive Nolan comments: “2015 marks the 20th anniversary of Arena, and we are planning a substantial tour to celebrate this event. To coincide with this tour we are releasing a new studio album. It will be a concept album loosely based on an M.R. James horror story, with plenty of strong themes and dark drama… Pure, classic Arena!” 
 
During the Polish leg of the tour the band will record their new DVD release. Clive Nolan: “The Arena ‘Unquiet Sky Tour' is approaching fast and one of the highlights of these concerts will be the DVD show at the Rialto in Katowice on 9th April. We are promoting the new album as well as celebrating 20 years of Arena… it’s going to be quite a set list representing all our albums along the way, and maybe a few surprises..;) Don’t miss this chance to be a part of this little bit of history!”
 
In Katowice, Arena will be supported by the Dutch progressive rock band Knight Area. Their show will be also recorded for their first official DVD release! The band play rock music, with roots in symphonic and neo-progressive rock. The music blends a variety of styles using very melodic keyboards and guitars and the dynamic songs vary from ballads to more rock and metal kind of music.

Nice gigs link with all the flags for quick referenceThumbs Up . Not playing anywhere near me but I'm sure I will get the album and DVD
 
Interesting, John Mitchell has just finished his Lonely Robot project ( which is a brilliant album btw) so he is very busy man indeed.

Seeing them on the 21st - not sure how they would sound with the new singer on stage, listening to 7 degress now I get a feeling of nostalgia...

I hope they put Solomon on this one as a special surprise for the fans...
