UK Newcastle City Hall 4th May 1978
uktixU.K. were a progrock supergroup formed by singer/bassist John Wetton (King Crimson, Roxy Music), keyboardist/electric violinist and local north east rock hero Eddie Jobson (Fat Grapple, Curved Air, Roxy Music), guitarist Allan Holdsworth (Soft Machine) and drummer Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson, Genesis). The original line-up of the band was short-lived, although new versions of the band have reformed in more recent times. UK’s music was technically amazing musicianship, and a combination of jazz/rock and prog, with a sense of the gothic thrown in for good measure. And this was after punk! Aaah, the days of prog pomposity, musical dexterity and OTT-ness 🙂
Setlist: Alaska; Time to Kill; The Sahara of Snow; Carrying No Cross; The Only Thing She Needs; Forever Until Sunday; Thirty Years In the Dead of Night; By the Light of Day; Presto Vivace and Reprise; Caesar’s Palace Blues
