Camel will return to the stage when they perform classic album The Snow Goose in full at the Barbican Arts Centre, London, on October 28.
 
Andrew Latimer will be joined by Colin Bass, Denis Clement, Gu LeBlanc and special guest Jan Schelhaus for the show, which marks the first time the band have played since their farewell tour.

Camel last performed their third album at the Royal Albert Hall in 1975, accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra.

A statement explains: “The evening pays tribute to former band member Peter Bardens, who died of cancer at the same time as frontman Latimer was battling a terminal illness.

“Ten years later, Latimer has regained health and is willing to celebrate a career that spans over four decades. This two-set show will also embrace compositions recorded throughout those years in a personal covenant of appreciation for a deeply rewarding life of music.”

A report on the band’s website previously revealed they were considering a tour in 2013, to be entitled Retirement Sucks. There’s also the possibility of a new album, which Latimer and Clement have been working on for some time.

Discussing the mainman’s health, the report explains: “He is very well and enjoys the great fortune of recovered good health. Of course, there are certain trade-offs, but they were well worth it. There really isn’t much more to say about that – it’s never wise to let any illness define a person. And so, that chapter in our lives is firmly closed. Well, for the most part.”

Always glad to hear good news about Camel.  Smile

Performing "Snow Goose" seems like a good move for them.  Performing classic albums is kind of "in" these days.

Great news!  I'm considering booking a ticket although with my unpredictable job it's always a risk. It would not be the first time that I have to miss a purchased concert ticket, but missing ticket, travel and hotel may be too much of a risk. Gonna think about it though.

my charity organisation is planning an international meeting in London around that time. This gives me a very good reason to suggest the dates for the meeting!

Damn! I think it's sold out - I got "no tickets which match your requirements" when I tried to book.
 
I'll just have to wait for somewhere else; I'll drive ANYWHERE to see them do The Snow Goose. I might even have to fly - and for anything else, that would be completely unthinkable.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.
