Tour will support new album - 'Focus X'
Prog rock band Focus will undertake a worldwide tour this November, in support of their new studio album 'Focus X'. Lead vocalist Thijs van Leer, who holds the distinction of being the first ever knighted musician in Holland, described completing work on 'Focus X' as a "thrill". "We are all ecstatic and look forward to playing the new material on the forthcoming Focus X Tour."
Focus has enjoyed great success following their comeback in the early 2000's, which after a new line-up produced the albums 'Focus 8' and 'Focus 9'.
Aside from van Leer on vocals, flute and keyboards, the band includes internationally renowned drummer Pierre van der Liden and bassist bobby Jacobs and guitarist Menno Gootjes.
Focus will be playing throughout the UK during November, kicking off at the Buxton Opera House on the 8th.
