Focus at Sage Gateshead

About

Classic Rock Band Focus visit as part of their 50th Anniversary Celebration.

With their unique progressive rock Focus manifested themselves at the start of the seventies as the most successful and the most appreciated of all the Dutch pop-rock exports. Their success culminating in the huge hits such as the popular ‘Hocus Pocus‘ and the internationally acclaimed ‘Sylvia

After an initial careful comeback which resulted in the well received albums “Focus 8” and ‘Focus 9/New Skin’, the band are now back on the frontline, with a fantastic line-up! Of course the founder member and musical genius Thijs van Leer is still holding the fort. Also back in his old spot is Pierre van der Linden, the drummer who is internationally renowned for his rhythmic skills, and who was and still is a defining factor in the whole Focus sound having joined the band in 1972. Guitarist Menno Gootjes who participated in Focus at an earlier stage and acclaimed Bass player Udo Pannakeet complete the bands line up.

A new Focus era has arrived. In late 2018 the band released Focus 11 to huge acclaim. There is a rejuvenated passion in the new compositions, which adorn the new album and they tour in 2020 to celebrate the Band’s 50 Anniversary.
