ROCK TOUR: PFM Add Dates To European Tour
Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM) have added two UK dates to their European tour in September.
The Italian prog veterans will perform at Islington's O2 Academy in London on September 14, followed by Manchester's Sound Control the next day, with shows also scheduled in Belgium, Holland, Switzerland and Germany.
PFM drummer and vocalist Franz Di Cioccio previously told Hit Channel: "PFM were the first who tried to go out of Italy and we made musical choices that were successful – and we had already played too much."
He continues: "We were session players and we played for five years. We were very experienced and very ready to do albums and tours. When we released ‘Per Un Amico’ in 1972, it was the first and only time that an Italian band was on a Billboard chart. I’m very proud of this. We showed that we weren’t successful only in Italy, but in the whole world".
