MORE BANDS ON THE BILL

Listeners to Thursday’s Kiss that Prog would have heard Eddie make another announcement about another two bands playing on The Main Stage.

Both Jennifer Clark and Long Earth have confirmed that they are both back on the PITP 2.0 bill.

I really am delighted that both bands are back, I saw Jennifer play her first solo gig with her band at The Prog B4 Xmas (PB4X) in December 2019. Jennifer and her band played a 40-minute set that I really enjoyed and it went down well with the audience.

Also playing at PB4X was Long Earth and they played for one hour. This was the first time that I’ve seen Long Earth and their PB4X set concentrated on their forthcoming new album at the time – One Around the Earth. 

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Long Earth and spending some time in their company. The Long Earth guys really are a great bunch of guys and I am looking forward to seeing them again at PIPT 2.0.

I can also reveal that This Winter Machine has confirmed that they will also be at PITP 2.0. When discussing this AL Winter he told me that this will be the first time that This Winter Machine will have played a gig in Scotland. So I pleased that PITP 2.0 will be the bands first Scottish gig.

Finally, during the week, Central Scotland based Rush tribute band Clockwork Angels, announced that they will be back playing gigs once lockdown is finally out of the way.

The band recently had taken a hiatus following the tragic death of their keyboard player John Eadie last November. They then took a decision that they were unable to continue playing live for a while which included playing at the original PITP 2.0 that was cancelled due to the COVID – 19 pandemic.

When I heard the good news that Clockwork Angels were going to be back playing live, I thought that it was fit and proper to invite them back to play at PITP 2.0 on Saturday 27th March 2021.

Tickets cost £25.00 and you can buy them by going on to proginthepark.com then click the GET TICKETS link. That then takes you to the Ticket Lab to buy tickets.
