Overview

Hawkwind return to the Roundhouse in 2017, 45 years since the legendary “Greasy Truckers Party” where Hawkwind recorded their No. 2 single ‘Silver Machine’ which featured Motorhead’s Lemmy on vocals.

Hawkwind formed in 1969 by Dave Brock who still remains at the helm today. In 1970 the band played at the first ever Glastonbury Festival, released their eponymously titled debut album and created their own new music genre called “Space Rock”.

Their 1972 “Space Ritual” Tour featured contributions from sci-fi author Michael Moorcock, poet Bob Calvert, designer Barney Bubbles and lighting engineer Liquid Len creating a truly multimedia experience. This has set the bar for every Hawkwind show since.

Lemmy left to form Motorhead in 1975, and Hawkwind have since gone on to become a massively influential group and have released more than 50 albums.

Their latest album Into the Woods is out on 5 May 2017.
