Multi-dimensional progressive-rock band Coheed And Cambria are set to play landmark concept album 'Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV' in its entirety at two special London shows on 18th and 19th June.

The epic 72-minute recording is considered by most to be Coheed And Cambria's most progressive album, and includes two of the band's best known singles, 'Welcome Home' and 'The Suffering', and has now sold over a million records worldwide.

The performance is part of the latest incarnation of Coheed And Cambria's 'Neverender' tour concept, when they play specific albums in their entirety. This first stated in 2008, when Coheed performed their first four albums over four nights, completing the feat in four different cities – New York, London, Chicago and Los Angeles. Their concept albums lend themselves particularly well to the live setting.


Singer Claudio Sanchez also announced on (Comic Book Resources) his plans to release a twelve-issue comic book for 'Good Apollo' as part of his 'The Amory Wars' series which comes this spring from Boom! Studios. The story, which loosely follows the lyrics of the album, centres around protagonist Claudio Kilgannon and the shocking discovery that he is The Crowing, an entity prophesied about in the holy book, who must dole out God's judgment to destroy the universe.

Tickets for Sunday 18th and Monday 19th June are available right here.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
