Actually, Bluey, I don't even yet know whether I like Caamora.
Well, then this would be a chance to find out!  :)
You know that Pallas will also be playing that night, don't you?!

But I don't need to get the last of my few øres stolen in Polen. I'v heard that they're so nimble that they can take the panties off women without the women noticing it.
Mmm... interesting!  ;D

In Denmark we also joke that when you enter Poland you're met with a sign saying "Welcome to Poland! Your car's already here!"
Yes, we have the same joke here in Germany (in fact, I know a guy who went on holiday in Poland by car and returned by train - no kidding!), but I think things have changed... and even if not - my tip is: wear your oldest clothes and make sure you look like a poor rock fan who hasn't got any spare money, and I bet they'll leave you alone. (It's what my brother does...  ;) )

Guys, come on! (All of you!!) Nobody going there? This can't be true!  :(

Well, that's actually what I am... so I won't be making it...

Dont Worry 'Blue Pony'... I don't expect people to take much of a chance on this...;)
besides, the tickets seem to be selling anyway.
Its lucky Arena/Pendragon are prepared to travel thousands of miles around the world so we can be within spitting distance of most people...

Any.. if you are going for real, let me know, and I will put you on the guest list.

Let me add a thought: I think this is exactly what Clive meant when he said we should value the bands we like while we still can...! So all of you who are desperately looking for an opportunity to spend some money on one of your favourite bands (well, musicians in this case) - here it is!!

bluepony

So... still nobody going to that gig?

Hopefully allot of people. But that won't include me. Sorry Clive.  :-\

I just took the time to do a proper search on travel possibilities from my town to Katowice. Quite nasty, in the end. And not any much cheaper than going to the Seychelles or something, it seems. No chance for me, there...
Arriving somewhere, but not here....

Hmmm... maybe we should indeed charter a bus and get some people together to share the costs.

Isn't this discussion gettin a bit silly? None of you guys are planning to go anyway. Let's take a discussion about what type of blue cheese the moon might be made of instead.

Who says I'm not planning to go? I'm just trying to talk someone into coming with me...  ;)

You're right Nicky, my in-house government wouldn't have approved of that journey, anyways. She's performing a gig that night herself, and it's up to me again to do the baby sitting.

Hey, that sounds interesting, Cap, not the babysitting (gladly leave the diapers to you), but your wife playing music. Any samples?

Did music have anything to do with you guys meeting each other?

No, no samples, she's the singer in a) a rock band, b) an 80s band, c) a Chillout/Smoothpop-whatever band, all of them cover bands. And no, we met each other at school, maaaany years ago :)

Metal Mind productions have posted this announcement today, including a nice poster in Polish;

24.10.2007 14:38:02 Prog-rock opera "She"

Metal Mind Productions presents "She", The Rock Opera by Caamora. The band will perform "She" on 31st October 2007 at the Wyspianski Theatre, Katowice in Poland.
The musical version of "She" is based on the classic novel of the same name by Victorian adventure writer H. Rider Haggard. Ever since seeing the film version as a child, Clive Nolan (Arena, Pendragon, Neo, Shadowland, Strangers on a Train, Casino etc) has carried this story in his psyche, always intending to create a musical version. Three years ago, his collaboration began with singer Agnieszka Swita, and this marked the beginning Caamora and of their first major project, "She".

The cast for the four main characters looks as follows:

Ayesha - Agnieszka Swita
Leo - Clive Nolan
Holly - Alan Reed (Pallas)
Ustane - Christina Booth (Magenta)

The 'She' Story
Two explorers travel to Africa and stumble into a world of mystery and intrigue. They discover lost tribes living in vast underground caverns and worshipping a living Goddess... 'She who must be obeyed'... Ayesha, the queen who is believed to be a woman of vast age. She welcomes the explorers, but her true motives soon become apparent. Ayesha has been waiting for the return of the man she loves... a man she murdered over 2000 years ago! The story takes us from the shores of Africa, through a vast network of underground cities, and on to a volcano which contains the mysterious fire of eternal life...

The concert will be filmed for the future DVD release which will accompany the 2 CD album, set for release on 21st January 2008. The "She" CD will also feature orchestral and choral material giving this Rock Opera an epic and varied appeal, featuring over two hours of music. The musicians involved in the recording of the "She" CD include: Scott Higham (Shadowkeep) on drums, Mark Westwood (Neo) on guitars, Martin Bowen on guitars, John Jowitt (IQ, Neo) on bass, Richard West (Threshold) on keyboards, Steve Williams (Power Quest) on keyboards. Then there's a horn, Oboe and cello player....

The official premiere of the prog-rock opera "She" is an event on a world-wide scale and it is only at Wyspiański Theater that one will be given a chance to bear witness to the splendour of this incredible show. Stunning stage setting, impressive visuals and, of course, breath-taking music will all make for an unforgettable show. Clive Nolan: "We still don't know exactly how this show will turn out; there are many ideas on the table and things are developing all the time. Whatever happens, it's going to be a terrific event - not to be missed!"

But, as regards this special night at the Theatre, this is not all. Caamora will be supported by two fantastic bands - Pallas and The Oliver Wakeman Band! It's going to be a real treat for fans of progressive rock!

CAAMORA
THE OLIVER WAKEMAN BAND
PALLAS
31.10.07 - Katowice, Teatr im. Wyspiańskiego

We stare at our screens
All our lives
What a waste of eyes..

Damn - where can I buy a very old car so I can go to the gig in Poland without the trouble of having it (i. e. the car) stolen?!

Very old car? You could try Cuba.  ;D

Christina from Magenta is involved ?

Book me a place in this minibus Clive told us about !  Just kidding : can't make it but maybe there will a second representation a little more west when the CD is released  ;)

I do feel that we led him down a little. Such a bunch of happy fans on this forum and no one comes to the concert.  :(

I wish i was rich.  :-\

Yeah... I'm feeling bad about it too... But I'm a student...

To be honest Katowice isn't really the centre of progworld...
If the show was going to be in the UK, I really would do my best to get there!

-Paco

Clive

Er... couple of points...

First - This information about the show has kind of been on the Caamora website in various guises for months... finger on the pulse kids!...;)
www.Caamora.net

Second - Since the venue is already nearly full, I guess some fans will be there, so no one is letting me down. If you dont see it, then get the DVD... see what you missed.

Third - I think Katowice is potentially more 'Progworld Central' than anywhere in the UK. I love playing in the UK, but frankly its easier to play a gig in Poland with a decent sized audience.

That thought already crossed my mind!  8)
No twilight for this this band.  ;D  *horns*

I agree. Katowice is often mentioned when it comes to prog bands.
I do think however, which is a tricky thing to say since i'm not really familiar with the amount of venue's in Poland, that in the U.K. there is more choice of venue's.

But like i said: Maybe i'm wrong.  :D
