HIT OF THE WEEK!
"Trip the light fandango"
The legendary rock band Procol Harum perform at Kongresowa Hall in the Palace of Culture and Science Dec 14. These musicians started playing together in 1967, performing the Paramounts. Their greatest popularity came in 1969-1977, when they changed the name of the group to Procol Harum and developed their own distinctive style, featuring a combination of rhythm & blues and classical music. Procol Harum rose to fame thanks to the composition A Whiter Shade of Pale. The group got back together in 1991, realising the album The Prodigal Stranger, and several years later they recorded an album of symphonic music.
The concert in Warsaw starts at 8:30 p.m.
Tickets cost zl. 60, 160 and 250, and are available at EMPiK stores and larger music stores.
