No, not a dream: Camel finally become, without speculation and dates. After you inform in January and announced the return to work and they were writing new material, it's time to set a date for his comeback after a serious illness that hit Andy Latimer. I have it all ...
Andy Latimer of CamelSegún can confirm right now, Camel will officially back to fully interpret the legendary live album 'The Snow Goose' at the Barbican Arts Centre in London on 28 October of this 2013.
And commemorate the famous concert 'A Live Record', which was his first album recorded live material from 1975 and 1977 and published in 1978. So, 35 years later, we see Andrew Latimer this time with Colin Bass, Denis Clement, Gu and Jan LeBlanc Schelhaus special guest. It will also be the first concert of his Farewell Tour Camel since 2003, just a decade later.
The official statement from the band explains: "The evening will pay tribute to who was a founding member of the band, Peter Bardens, who died of cancer while the current leader of the group, Latimer, fighting for his life against a tough disease ". He adds: "10 years later, Latimer has conquered disease and held him resuming his career, which stretches for 4 decades now."
It also clarifies the content of the concert: "This show two compositions recall repertoires that have taken place during that time in a special challenge to appreciate a life full of hard work in the music." The concert has a ridiculous price for tickets for the big event that is: the tickets cost between 25 and 35 pounds and all official information, if you urge to travel to London, is here:
- Web Barbican Arts Centre and tickets:
The Barbican Arts Centre only has seating for 1,900 people, so tickets will soon be exhausted.

That sounded in 1975:
Andy Latimer of Camel 2 In May 2007, almost five years ago, almost nothing, his wife and assistant in Camel with letters and other contributions, Susan Hoover announced that Andy Latimer suffered from a blood disorder called polycythemia vera. It is a chronic syndrome that is the increase of blood cells, mainly red blood cells. Usually presented leukocytosis and thrombocytosis. It affects mainly males, aged between 50 and 60 years. It is a disease of insidious onset and slow development.
Well, after years of slow recovery and return ads unconsummated, the miracle jumped in January: Camel hung an official note which read:
"Well, what is a new Camel album after so long? Then somehow running. When everything is over and the crisis is far away, it was time to return to life as 'normal'. Started making plans. But was not there more than 'normal' life. was really different. course, the sun rises and sets, the earth rotates on its axis, etc, but now life is another regarding the it used to be. Passing two years trying to deal with the worst case scenario, this new future is a toll quite insidious. past the storm, you see how an involuntary reflex to finally get back to business. wanted to return to the road Camel on tour, maybe in the 'Retirement Sucks "tour ens eptember or October of this year, compose a new album, record a new DVD, go on with life in general ... But we had not understood one aspect after passing one life changing experience: we are the survivors. And that, in itself, life changing. thing you had to do was the opposite to make big plans, and it was something that just happened without realizing: survivors need exhale deeply and learn to breathe without imposition or pressures. So in the end it takes time to recover from the battle itself. Finally, we are ready for the challenges ahead. "
This new material is the first studio album since 'A Nod and a Wink' (2002), a melancholy album dedicated to the then recently deceased Peter Bardens. While it is true that in these 11 years of silence has been the compilation of productions as 2010 'Rainbow's End: An Anthology 1973-1985' DVD and also in that year 'The Opening Farewell', with videos of the tour of the latter album in 2003.
