Melody Maker – 17 November 1973
HAWKWIND have devised a new stage presentation, “The Ridiculous Road Show Starring The Silly Hawkwind Brothers” which will be unveiled on their massive British tour next month.
The new show supersedes “Space Ritual,” which will, however, form the basis of the band’s stage act for their first American tour which starts in Philadelphia on November 23.
Hawkwind are headlining the 5-date tour – uniquely, for a British band on their first visit to the States. They will be appearing in New York (25), Chicago (26), Detroit (28) and Los Angeles (December 5).
A number of support bands have been lined up for the tour, including Zoe, Chilli Willi, Bronco, Ace, Fruupp and Magill, the band fronted by former Hawkwind guitarist Hugh Lloyd-Langton.
And the Clacton concert will be a joint date with the Sutherland Brothers and Quiver – all proceeds will go to the Royal National Lifeboat Institute.
