The Official TANGERINE DREAM newsletter dated 9/7/13
We assume many of you already read the news on our website: TANGERINE DREAM will tour again in 2014! For those who didn't realize it so far:
First of all, some words about the term “FAREWELL”: True is that this tour, which will be extended to the US and other territories will be the last live concerts in a row in TD’s history. But of course there will be singleevents the time after. All speculation about Edgar’s retirement are
totally wrong. It’s more the business side and the experience the band
had with their last touring activities in 2010 and 2012. More details
will be given through the known networks.
So the tour will start in April (7-12) 2014 with the CRUISE TO THE EDGE vessel in Miami and some more gigs in the US around that date and will continue with the first European gig in PARIS on May 22.
We will also perform in LONDON, VIENNA, NIJMEGEN (NL), FINLAND and
diverse cities in Germany etc (May/June 2014). Due to various offers
from promoters in Europe we still cannot give you all dates now as they
have to be confirmed first and some days might still be changed or
added, but all dates you currently will find on the known pre-sale
portals (Eventim, Ticketmaster i.e.) are safe and you can buy these
tickets. More about the shows, music, merch and surprises will be
announced within the coming months.
So far confirmed concerts in Germany and the Netherlands:
24 MAY 2014 Nijmegen - Concertgebouw De Vereeniging 26 MAY 2014 Munich – Circus Krone 27 MAY 2014 Stuttgart – Theaterhaus 30 MAY 2014 Berlin – Admiralspalast 31 MAY 2014 Offenbach (Frankfurt/Main) – Capitol 01 JUNE 2014 Cologne – Theater am Tanzbrunnen
We would be happy if you would share this exciting musical journey with us!
More dates coming very soon - just check our website from time to time!

3. NEW COMPILATIONS
Within the next weeks TD will release TWO NEW COMPILATIONS - especially made for our fans in NORTH AMERICA:
- ONE NIGHT IN AFRICA (Single CD) - Compilation of well-known tracks
relating to Africa as well as very NEW tracks! A pearl of rhythmic
atmospheric sounds among all compilations so far.....
- LOST IN
STRINGS (Double CD) - Compilation of guitar tracks EDGAR composed and
is performing - including NEW compositions, too! So far a collection of
Edgar's guitar works alone doesn't not yet exist and we thought it's
time to release this now. Many fans - especially from the USA - were
asking for such a compilation after the last US tour in 2012 and we now
are fullfilling this wish - enjoy!
More details on the coming compilations soon....
All other projects mentioned so far in our last newsletters (like KAFKA
album & STARMUS Blu-Ray etc. etc.) are still in the pipeline, but
do need further creative time.....
