Icons of English Progressive Rock, Van der Graaf Generator, return to New York City on June 30 to perform at The Concert Hall. The group features three of the original touring members and blew away fans when they performed in 2009 (read NYT review). Their signature sound is shaped by Peter Hammill’s distinctive & dynamic voice, Hugh Banton’s thick chordal keyboard & bass parts and Guy Evans' rolling jazz-rock-like drumming. Formed in Manchester 1967, VDGG first broke out on BBC Radio One and performed at such prestigious venues as London's Royal Albert Hall and Paris’ Olympia. Since their reunion in 2006 as a trio, the group has remained active and produced new material as well as reworked versions of earlier songs. They have toured worldwide for the past six years and on the strength of their newest release, A Grounding in Numbers, Van der Graaf Generator will storm North America with a series of dates that also includes NearFest (6/12) and Montreal Jazz Festival (7/3).
