CAMEL – CANCELLED :-( (2023)

We were sadly informed by Camel Production that Camel’s 50 years strong tour is cancelled due to Andy Latimer having health issues. We hope for a good recovery for Andy, but have to cancel the sold out show in Stockholm for now. It’s not ruled out that a new concert can be booked in the future. 
All tickets will automatically be refunded to the payment option used to pay for them.
”It is with great regret that Camel Productions must announce the cancellation of Camel’s 2023 tour. Shortly after rehearsals, Andrew Latimer became troubled by a sharp pain in his lower back that advanced into his leg and foot. He was sent for diagnostic tests which quickly revealed a severe condition that requires urgent surgery. Recovery time is uncertain, and it is this uncertainty that prevents us looking at other options such as postponement. However, recovery is suggested to take 8-12 weeks minimum so there is no possibility of Andrew continuing with the tour. And without Andrew, there can be no tour, cancellation is unavoidable.
We know this news will be immensely upsetting to fans as it is to the band. We are all so grateful for the support of fans who purchased tickets and particularly appreciative of the many emails from fans near and afar who shared their excitement. Throughout his career, Andrew Latimer has had numerous physical challenges on tours and has always overcome them. Camel look to the future for another opportunity to write The Final Chapter.”
The original announcement text:
Progressive Circus and KPM Concerts are incredibly happy to invite one of the most iconic prog names to Sweden for the first time since 1984:
The 2023 tour celebrates the 50 years passed since the band started to release albums, with Mirage (1974), The Snow Goose (1975) and Moonmadness (1976) being mandatory classics in the record collectors’ shelf. The break through album was The Snow Goose, an instrumental concept album inspired by a novel with the same name, leading to a prestigeous concert with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall.
The bands sound is defined much by founder Andy Latimer, whose fantastic guitar solos have inspired many guitarists throughout the years. By the end of the 70’s, Colin Bass joined on bass and was a Camel member until the breakup in 1984. In the 90’s the band reformed for some new tasteful album releases but after A Nod and a Wink (2002) they have focused on some exclusive, well visited and hailed tours and live DVD:s. On stage in 2023 you will see Denis Clement on drums, Peter Jones on keyboards and vocals, besides Andy Latimer on guitars and flute and Colin Bass on bass.
To match Camels’ epic, symphonic goose bump prog that has inspired names like Marillion, Opeth and Steven Wilson, we have booked the exclusive China teatern to maximize this unique concert experience that you don’t have to think twice if you should go to. You will not regret it, so buy a ticket to both yourself and perhaps someone you care about already today!
See you there 😊
