Celebrating a remarkable 50 plus years in the business, this show promises an enormous hits-packed set spanning every year of this incredible bands journey. Hocus Pocus indeed!
With their unique brand of progressive rock, Focus manifested themselves at the start of the 70s as the most successful and appreciated of all the Dutch pop-rock exports. Fronted by founding member Thijs Van Leer, and best known for their hits Hocus Pocus, House of The King and Sylvia, as well as critically acclaimed albums Moving Waves, Focus 3 and Hamburger Concerto, the iconic Dutch music masters are back with, which is guaranteed to please their legions of fans!
After a comeback in the early 2000s, which resulted in the well-received albums Focus 8 and Focus 9, the band regrouped with a fantastic new line-up. Along with Thijs van Leer on vocals, flute and keyboards, back on the drums is famed Focus drummer Pierre van der Linden, who joined the group on their second album Moving Waves in 1972. Internationally renowned for his rhythmic skills, Pierre remains a defining factor in the Focus sound. Bassist Udo Pannekeet, and guitarist Menno Gootjes, who participated in Focus at an earlier stage, complete the bands current line-up.
A new Focus era has arrived! There is a rejuvenated passion in the new compositions that adorn the new album Focus X, which features a full-scale Roger Dean painting on the cover. Says Thijs van Leer, who holds the distinction of being the first-ever knighted musician in Holland.
