Prog rock icons to visit Flowerpot

The Flowerpot in Derby will throw its doors open again to three more quality acts this week.

First up, on Friday, April 12, will be the visit of the iconic progressive rock band Curved Air.

Featuring a number of original members, the band made a successful comeback at the Glastonbury and Isle of Wight Festivals, and more recently triumphed at High Voltage.

They remain a unique and powerful combination.

On Saturday, April 13, you can see The Floyd Effect at the King Street venue.

The Floyd Effect offer a tribute to Pink Floyd’s psychedelic years, focusing on the albums such as Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, More, Atom Heart Mother, Meddle, Obscured By Clouds, to put together a stunning show taking you back to the heyday of psychedelia and, some may say, Pink Floyd’s most iconic era.

Then, on Thursday, April 18, you can see Ian McNabb, the lead singer and songwriter of The Icicle Works.

One of the great singer/songwriters to emerge from the 80s Liverpool music scene, Ian McNabb is founder/lead singer with the chart toppers The Icicle Works, famous for the UK and US Top 40 hits Love Is A Wonderful Colour and Whisper To A Scream (Birds Fly).

Since those days, he has gone on to enjoy a critically-acclaimed solo career.

Doors open for all three gigs at 8pm. Admission is £15 to see Curved Air, £12 for The Floyd Effect and £10 for Ian McNabb. For more details, see
