Playing In Contact IN FULL + Fan Requests
With Special Guests, Opus Of A Machine & James Norbert Ivanyi
Australia's foremost authority on progressive rock, Caligula's Horse, have announced three very special shows ahead of their return to Europe. The band will be playing their latest album, 2017's Top 50 Aria Charting In Contact IN FULL! In addition to experiencing this fantastic album from start to finish, Caligula's Horse will also be playing a selection of fan requests! Joining the band as special guest are two acts, that are no strangers to Caligula's Horse fans.
James Norbert Ivanyi: One of the most original, commanding and versatile young guitarists on the scene today. James' unique style of technical modern metal fused with the classic sounds of 1960's and 1970's progressive rock music have seen his fan base transcend generations and genres. His recent appearance at this year's Progfest won him unanimous praise and he has become one of the most in demand online guitar teachers in the country!
Featuring former Caligula's Horse guitarist, Zac Greensill, Opus Of A Machine are pushing the creative boundaries of alternative, progressive rock by combining the experimental nature of the genre's foundation with an electro, pop edge. Technical wizardry meets emotional introspection. Pumping synths and skycraping melodies pinned down by a rock solid groove, this band was made to be seen live!
Caligula's Horse have played but a handful of shows in Australia over the last 12 months. Their In Contact tour last September received rave reviews for its elegance, intensity and sheer emotional power.
Once again, Europe beckons and the band will be returning to appear on several October festivals including; Euroblast Festival - Cologne, Germany, Prog Power Europe - Baarlo, Netherlands Very Prog Festival - Tolouse, France with more to be announced!
As part of the tour, Sam Vallen lead guitarist from Caligula's Horse and James Norbert Ivanyi will be holding exclusive Guitar Masterclasses before each show!
These 70 minute classes will be jam packed with information and entertainment. Sam and James interview each other andgo over their guitar techniques, approaches and rationale to songwriting, production tricks, their live touring experiences, and of course their extensive gear! Plus fans will be able to dig deeper via their own Q+A session.
Playing smaller, more intimate venues, these shows will sell out fast!
