Steven Wilson announces spring U.S. tour dates

January 3, 2013
imgProgressive rock torchbearer Steven Wilson has announced multiple dates for his North American tour to support his forthcoming solo release, The Raven that Refused to Sing (and Other Stories).
Beginning Tuesday April 16 in Tampa, Wilson is confirmed for 16 dates including stops in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles – itinerary below. Tickets go on sale this week – fans can visit for more information.

The Raven that Refused to Sing (and other stories), Wilson’s third solo effort, releases February 25, 2013 on Kscope and will feature a limited 4-disc deluxe edition (Blu-ray, DVD and 2CD) packaged in an impressive 128-page hardback book containing lyrics, short stories by Wilson, and haunting images and illustrations by Hajo Mueller. Standard double vinyl, CD and Blu-Ray editions will also be available.

Wilson recently released the critically acclaimed get all you deserve live collection on Blu-ray and in December 2012 he received his fourth Grammy nomination.  

Best known as founder and front man of British rock act Porcupine Tree, four-time Grammy nominee Steven Wilson has produced and collaborated with artists as diverse as Opeth, Blackfield, Jethro Tull, and King Crimson. Porcupine Tree’s last album went top 30 in both the UK and USA, and the tour climaxed with sold out shows at Royal Albert Hall in London and Radio City Music Hall in New York. Following the release of his solo effort Grace For Drowning, Steven embarked on his first ever solo tour, assembling a virtuoso band, featuring Marco Minnemann (drums), Nick Beggs (bass), Theo Travis (flute and sax), Adam Holzman (keys) and Niko Tsonev (guitars), to accompany him. With the addition of Guthrie Govan (guitar) and legendary producer / engineer Alan Parsons, Wilson emerges as the modern torch-bearer of his influences and illuminates a path to music’s heralded past.
