In a rare opportunity to see a group of true music pioneers, legendary progressive rock supergroup UK has re-formed for a one-off world tour and will perform together for the first time in more than three decades.
Originally formed in England in 1977 by keyboardist and electric violinist Eddie Jobson (Roxy Music, Frank Zappa); vocalist and bassist John Wetton (King Crimson); guitarist Allan Holdsworth (Soft Machine); and drummer Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson, Genesis), UK represented the final statement of the classic progressive rock era - first with the group's groundbreaking eponymous debut album (1978), then as a trio with drummer Terry Bozzio (Frank Zappa) with the influential Danger Money album (1978), followed by the band's swan song Night After Night(1979), a live album recorded during the group's last tour of Japan.
Now, 33 years after their farewell concert, the three legendary players of the original trio - Jobson, Wetton, and Bozzio - have reunited to reenact that final tour one last time. The music of UK has influenced progressive bands from Yes to Rush; guitar heroes from Malmsteen to Vai; and hard rock bands from Van Halen to Dream Theater, leaving these individual members of UK with unsurpassed reputations as the definitive musicians' musicians. Come see them take the stage together again at Highline Ballroom!
