Saddle up for some utterly sensational news! Australia’s foremost authority on progressive rock, Caligula’s Horse, have officially announced their 'Let It Grow' tour hitting the East Coast this August. Following resounding acclaim for their 'Love Conquers All' tour in 2018 that showcased their latest release 'In Contact' played in full, the 'Let It Grow' tour will celebrate their cult classic album "The Tide, The Thief & River's End" as well as their breakout progressive masterpiece "Bloom" played back to back! Promising to be a night of delightful sonic horseplay, frontman Jim Grey comments: "After the Love Conquers All tour when we played In Contact in full, we were inundated with requests for full performances of "River's End" and of "Bloom". So to celebrate the 5th birthday of these two albums that helped shape who we are as a band, we thought we'd go all in and play them both back-to-back. It's going to be a beautiful night of nostalgia for all of us, and I'm sure there are plenty of die-hards out there who can't wait to chuck a cheeky mosh to some OG C-Horse material." And as if it wasn't enough to grab a night of C-Horse nostalgia, 'Let It Grow' will also feature a 60 minute guitar masterclass from axe-slingers and all round nice boys Sam Vallen and Adrian Goleby. Jam-packed with information and entertainment, Sam and Adrian will interview each other, go over their guitar techniques, approaches to songwriting, production tricks, their live touring experience - and for all you gear nerds, they'll be showcasing their extensive gear! 'Let It Grow' will be the first headlining tour from Caligula's Horse in a year. Last seen on Aussie stages as part of the epic line up led by Ne Obliviscaris in May, Caligula's Horse spent all of October and most of November 2018 playing to their ever growing European fans. It’s time for the band to play for their Australian fans once again before heading into the studio to record the follow up to their biggest album to date, "In Contact". So don't delay, giddy-up and go grab your ticket now for 'Let It Grow'.
