Dutch prog rock legends Kayak have announced European tour dates, running from October to April next year, including two UK dates, the first time they’ve played here in 41 years.The band, who were formed back in 1972 by keyboard player Ton Scherpenzeel, released their latest album, Seventeen, earlier this year. The current line-up features singer Bart Schwertmann, guitarist Marcel Singor, bassist Kristoffer Gildenlow and drummer Collin Leijenaar alongside Scherpenzeel.”Kayak are very excited to get back on the road again, the band told Prog. “Our latest album Seventeen will be the backbone of the show but at the same time the setlist is well balanced by a lot of older material from albums like Royal Bed Bouncer, Close To The Fire and Merlin to please long-time fans and ‘newbies’ alike. We are looking forward to play in Europe and meeting fans from abroad, like Norway, Sweden, Germany and Russia. Especially the return to the UK after 41 years means a lot to us.”Kayak will play:Netherlands Hilversum De Vorstin – October 26Netherlands Maastricht Muzikgietrj – 27Norway Olso Konserthaus – November 3Sweden Gothenburg Musikens Hus – 4Germany Russelheim Das Rind – 6Germany Dortmund Musiktheater Piano – 7Netherlands Den Bosch Willem Twee – 22Netherlands Haarlem Patronaat – 23Netherlands Middlelburg De Spot – 24Russia Moscow Central House Of Artists – December 12Netherlands Breda Mess – 21Netherlands Weert De Bosuil – 28Netherlands Ulft Crosslands Festival – 29Netherlands Zoetermeer De Boerderij – January 12Netherlands Leylstad Corneel – February 1Netherlands Drachten Iduna – 2Netherlands – Zwolle Hedon – 22Netherlands Groningen Oosterpoort – 23UK London Underworld – April 5UK Chepstow Winter’s End Festival – 7More information from the Kayak website.
