Prog rock in November

Anyone attending Marillion/Saga (in Pratteln, Z7 Konzertfabrik) November 26th?

What about Yes at the Volkhaus in Zürich Nov. 23rd ?

And what about Arena Nov. 12th in Pratteln ?

We can coordinate, get together for drinks before the show, go to the show, and stay together for drinks AFTER the show.

Only if someone holds a gun to my head !!

Marillion were ok as a Genesis tribute band with Fish but now they've turned into the art school boomtown rats

But if Lynyrd Skynyrd come over , count me in ....

Re: Prog rock in November

I'm afraid it's bound to be Geoff Downes. He's not too bad. from the Yes website: "Geoff went to Leeds School of Music in 1971, graduating in 1975, thus becoming the first member of Yes to graduate with a degree in music.". He's a pro !

Saw them at the Volkshaus 10 or so years ago.

Last (and only) time I saw YES was in CT back in '75.

Saw Rush in Milano in 2004, two two-hour sets with no opening act, great!

Re: Prog rock in November

Count me in for Marilion and Yes. ElggDK will be there for Marillion as well.

Not sure about Arena, have they got any new material out?

Re: Prog rock in November

Nothing since 2005/2006 (Pepper's Ghost), their weakest for my taste. Nothing extraordinary since The Visitor, or Contagion, but they're still pretty good.

Pain of Salvation is at the Komplex in Zürich on Nov. 23. They're more on the metal side of prog, but put on a great show. Saw them at Z7 earlier this year. It was great.

Ironic or something to do with destiny, but "Smoke and Mirrors" was just playing on my iTunes player as I read your post! Agreed, "Pepper's Ghost" wasn't their best, but it had some good tracks, "Purgatory Road" is my favorite from that CD. Best CD they've released was "The Visitor" back in 1998.

Re: Prog rock in November

Wow, I've wanted to see them for a long time, never played close enough for me. I'll have to decide between Yes (whom I've seen a few times already) or Pain of Salvation. Damn...

They are opening for Opeth on Nov 26, not the 23rd. Already bought the tickets.

I just found out this morning that they're opening for Opeth. I think I peed a little when I found out.

Too bad POS will have a shortened opening set. But on the other hand: OPETH!!!

P.S. Sorry for the bad date.
