Statement from the band:
As a result of the impact of the COVID-19 virus, it is with regret that all of the scheduled concerts in 2020 by John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest are cancelled. We are in the midst of rescheduling concerts for next year and tickets for shows originally scheduled for this year will be valid for the revised dates. We hope to announce a full revised touring schedule for 2021 in both the UK and Europe (COVID-19 permitting) in the next few weeks.
John, Craig, Jez and Kev would like to thank you all for your continued support and we look forward to the release of a new album in 2021 and to seeing you next year. In the meantime we hope that you all remain safe and well. We will be back to you with more news soon.
John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest return to tour the UK for the first time in two years. The band will be promoting a new studio album (due for release in early October), following on from their successful and acclaimed 2013 album North, and the wonderful music of BJH over a staggering fifty years.
The band’s first single, Early Morning, was released in April 1968 by EMI Records’ Parlophone label. The band’s legacy includes a series of classic albums, Barclay James Harvest, Once Again, Barclay James Harvest and Other Short Stories, Everyone Is Everybody Else, Barclay James Harvest Live, Time Honoured Ghosts (recorded in San Francisco by Neil Young producer Elliot Mazer), Octoberon and the platinum selling album Gone to Earth. Barclay James Harvest went on to perform to 175,000 people on the steps of the Reichstag in West Berlin in 1980, the album of which topped the German charts.
With such classic songs as Mockingbird, Hymn, Child of the Universe and Poor Man’s Moody Blues featuring alongside more recent material such as On Leave, these tour dates promise an evening of classic Barclay James Harvest alongside new music. Over five decades since the first Barclay James Harvest record, John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest look forward to live performance once more.
