Tidal Concerts proudly presents IQ, who will be on stage early for this show, at 8pm!
With a 35-year history, IQ are widely regarded as one of the world’s most highly respected progressive rock bands. Their first vinyl album ‘Tales From The Lush Attic’ was released in 1983, and was followed by the genre-defining classic ‘The Wake’ in 1985.
2013 saw the 30th anniversary of IQ’s first album ‘Tales from the Lush Attic’ being celebrated with a completely new mix from the original 24-track masters, released in both 2-disc CD/DVD hardback book and gatefold heavy duty vinyl editions. This was shortly followed by the vinyl release of the band’s 1993 album ‘Ever’.
In 2014 IQ released their eleventh studio album ‘The Road Of Bones’ to unanimous praise, rightfully taking the ‘Album of the Year’ slot in virtually every progressive rock poll that year. A special edition 2-disc version included an album’s worth of extra new tracks. The double live CD ‘Live On The Road Of Bones’ appeared in 2015, and the band’s first Blu-ray ‘Scrape Across The Sky’, filmed at the band’s ever popular annual Christmas concert in Holland, followed at the end of 2016.
And so to 2017: IQ have gigs lined up in the UK, Scandinavia and Canada, in between writing sessions for the next, as yet untitled, studio album.
