Gong has never stopped shape shifting in its 48 years of touring – from its origins in the Parisian revolutions of ‘68, through the Virgin years to its newest incarnation.
One of Daevid Allen’s last acts on this planet was to give his blessing to Gong’s newest form. Leaving fans assured that he had left his creation in the safest of hands.
“I feel you are all equally on the brink of a whole new era of Gong, musically, lyrically and spiritually and that pretty much all you have each done until now has been a preparation for this time.”
“I want you to know I am 100% behind you with this project and I wish you huge success in every way you decide to measure that success.”
I am really proud of laying the foundation for the Gong tradition and have done my best to make it as multi layered, wide ranging and open ended as I possibly could so that almost anything was possible as a result.” Daevid Allen, 2015.
Unorthodox, unpredictable it defies showbiz gravity and yet isâ€¨adored by its multitude of fans of all ages.
Gong are a band that must be seen to be believed.
