Did you ever think that in your wildest musical dreams that you would be reading a tour announcement about the Crazy World Of Arthur Brown? I know that I didn’t and I also didn’t receive any sort of proper press release about this tour so I assembled the bits and pieces that I found on the web. From these I did snag the dates and tour poster for your edification. When you consider that this performer has not been here in something like 47 years, it bears some proclamation. The tour is being labeled as the “Zim Zam Zim” tour which is an album that came out in 2014 and the shows are also being done in celebration of the 50th anniversary of their debut single “Devil’s Grip”. I should admit now that I only knew a sparse amount of material from the man but I do know that he was quintessential in the early Progressive Rock, Space Rock and Psychedelic Rock forms. I also know that Carl Palmer from the legendary ELP was once a member of his band. Check out the poster and the select tour dates below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I only know a few select tunes from his illustrious musical adventures but if I can work out the details and have the night open you can be rest assured that I will be at the NYC Show. It’s bound to be interesting if not somewhat bizarre. What do you think of this news? Is it something that you’d check out in concert? You can let me know down in the comments section below. You can also examine a classic video clip of his biggest hit “Fire”.
