Flowerpot to host Too Rex and Panic Room

Panic Room will be performing a gig at The Flowerpot in Derby on Friday, June 28.

One of the most exciting progressive rock bands currently on the circuit, they will be bringing their award-winning music to the King Street venue as part of their S K I N tour.

Promoting their new album - already hailed ‘a masterpiece’ by the international music press - the band will perform a wealth of music from S K I N, along with many fan favourites from their first two albums.

You can expect music of epic grandeur, spine-tingling beauty and gutsy raw power, all delivered with the sheer passion and sense of genuine fun which has made Panic Room one of the best-loved live bands on the circuit today.

Fronted by Anne-Marie Helder - winner of Best Female Vocalist in 2012 and 2011, and now holder of the ‘Heartthrob’ crown in Classic Rock Presents PROG magazine! - the band have a unique and powerful sound, infused with a flair and playfulness.

(The band members’ past touring CVs include work with legends such as Simply Red, Fish, Ultravox, Toto, Keith Emerson, Asia, and Robert Palmer).

Having blazed a trail through the British rock scene, Panic Room are rising fast and hotly tipped for mainstream international success.

Support on the night will come from Morpheus Action.
