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.
