Steve Hillage Joins Japanese Band Rovo For March UK Tour

Iconic guitarist Steve Hillage and his band System 7 will team-up with Japan’s leading progressive rock band Rovo next month for their first-ever concerts on UK soil.

The tour has been masterminded by progressive rock guitarist Steve, who was recently given the “The Visionary Award” at the Progressive Music Awards 2013.

Each ticket booking will automatically include a free MP3 of the ‘Hinotori EP’ featuring individual and collaborative tracks from both System 7 and Rovo.

With eight musicians on-stage, including two live drummers, the Phoenix Rising concert will highlight a sophisticated blend of electronic beats and live instrumentation. Hillage fans can be assured that, in the format of Phoenix Rising, his masterful electric guitar style will be fully unleashed, with extensive soloing and duets with the electric violin of Rovo’s Yuji Katsui.

System 7 & Rovo collaborated on 2013’s highly acclaimed studio album ‘Phoenix Rising’. Watch the mind-blowing video for single ‘Hinotori’:
