CAMEL To Release “The Snow Goose Live” DVD

Camel will release "The Snow Goose Live" DVD

Camel have confirmed the release of a live DVD filmed at the Barbican in London last October, where they performed classic album The Snow Goose in full.

The 130-minute movie also includes nine tracks from across the veterans’ career. It’s initially available via their merchandise stall, with a general release to follow.

The band – who returned to action last year after a 10-year hiatus – are midway through a European tour without keyboardist Guy LeBlanc, who requires continuing treatment for renal cancer.

He recently told fans: “I’ve been undergoing radiation treatment, to which it seems I’ve responded well. I’ve also been taking a drug to try shrinking the tumours in order to buy me more time in this mortal coil.

I had hoped to be in a stable course of treatment so I could join my buddies again, but developments in the last couple of weeks have made it necessary for me to bow out, so that I may focus on my recovery and the recommendations of my doctors. I look forward to seeing everyone again once this hurdle is passed.

Ton Scherpenzeel of Kayak, who played on Camel’s 2003 farewell tour, is standing in for LeBlanc. They play the Corn Exchange, Cambridge, tonight, and the Parr Hall, Warrington, on Thursday.
