Arena celebrating 20 years of “The Visitor” with a Special Tour !

Arena will be back on tour in 2018 in celebration of the 20th anniversary of “The Visitor”. The tour will also support the release of the new album entitled “Double Vision” scheduled for release in May 2018.

Arena: “We’re excited to announce the dates for our forthcoming tour in April and May 2018 to celebrate the release of our new album “Double Vision” and the 20th anniversary of “The Visitor”. We’ll be playing all of “The Visitor” live on this tour, along with songs from the new album. We look forward to re-creating “The Visitor” concept on stage… see you on tour! Ticket links are available on ARENA website spread the news!!”

Clive Nolan: “Not long now before Arena kicks back into action with a new album and a tour. The album ‘Double Vision’ is being recorded at the moment, and will be released in May. Then comes the tour… a 20 year celebration of ‘The Visitor’ album. It will be the first time in 20 years that the band will play the album live, in full. Don’t miss it… I cannot see it happening again.”

Formed back in 1995 by ex-Marillion drummer Mick Pointer and keyboard virtuoso Clive Nolan, they were joined two years later by John Mitchell on guitar, forming the trio which is still at the heart of the band to this day, now joined by vocalist Paul Manzi and bassist Kylan Amos. A string of top quality albums have followed since then.

The band have a new album due out for the tour, entitled Double Vision, and will also be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their classic 1997 album The Visitor. To reflect this, the band will be playing an extended set with no support, during which they will be playing The Visitor in its entirety!
