CRS Best Keyboard Player of 2011

He did it again! In March 2012 Clive collected his seventh Classic Rock Society award for the Best Keyboard Player of the year. The award ceremony was concluded with Arena live show, which pleased the audience and allowed the band to begin the next chapter of ‘The Seventh Degree Of Separation’ Tour.

Arena 

Following the success of the last year autumn tour, the band is preparing for the next series of concerts. The season will start in Holland at the ROCK Ittervoort Festival in April. Hot news: Arena has also been confirmed for the Night of the Prog Festival in Loreley, Germany!! These will be the nights to remember, so we hope to see a lot of you there. Don’t forget to come and say ‘hi’! Two more dates are confirmed for November  – Arena will play in Quebec and two weeks later in everyone’s favourite Assembly Rooms in Leamington Spa. More dates will be announced soon, so check Arena official website for tickets and further news.

Works are in progress on the forthcoming DVD recorded in the famous Wyspianski Theatre in Katowice, Poland in November 2011. Stay tuned!

‘She – the Musical’ in Cheltenham

What a fantastic time we all had in Cheltenham in February! The dream finally came true and five shows of ‘She’ were performed over four days in the Playhouse Theatre. Both the main cast as well as the understudies (performing during the matinee show) did a great job, which was fully appreciated by the audiences, critics as well as the artists themselves. The enthusiastic reception of the Cheltenham shows led to the resolution of making some further plans for ‘She’.

Visit Caamora Company official sites and check the reviews, reports as well as the selection of beautiful photos and some video material from the Cheltenham events.
