After the success of their 2009 40th Anniversary UK tour and the critically acclaimed new studio album '2032', GONG, the legendary progressive/psychedelic rockers will return to the UK in September 2010 for three special concerts in Glasgow, Manchester and London.
Support for these dates will come from very special guests Nik Turner's Space Ritual.

Tickets for GONG's September UK tour are on sale now and are available from 0871 230 0333 / www.artistticket.com. Dates include: Glasgow 02 ABC (Thursday Sept 9 - £18.50), Manchester Academy (Friday Sept 10 - £18.50) and London HMV Forum (Saturday Sept 11 - £20).
The forthcoming UK concerts will once again reunite core GONG members, including original founding member Daevid Allen (Guitar, Lead Vocal), Steve Hillage (Lead Guitar), Gilli Smyth (Space Whisper, Poetry), Miquette Giraudy (Synthesizer), Chris Taylor (Drums), Dave Sturt (Bass) and Ian East (Sax, Flute).
Described as exhilarating, compelling and other worldly, GONG's 2009 '2032' album represented the first time Hillage has recorded with original Gong founder, Daevid Allen, since 1974's 'You' album.
'2032' continues Gong's famous 'Radio Gnome' album trilogy which includes the psychedelic progressive rock albums 'Flying Teapot' (1973), 'Angel's Egg' (1973), and 'You' (1974). '2032' is the year that the Planet Gong makes full contact with the Planet Earth - a major new chapter in the continually evolving Gong mythology.
