Concerts: Steven Wilson Brings His Epic Live Solo Show To North America

Posted on Sunday, November 06 @ 20:00:00 UTC by nightowl

Tour Preview Video, In-Store Appearances, Spector Bass Giveaway, New Mobile App & More!

If you thought Steven Wilson couldn't top his amazing Porcupine Tree live shows, then be prepared to be blown away as he comes to North America this week for a series of special solo shows in support of his new album, Grace For Drowning. This is the second album released under Wilson's own name, and builds on the artistic inroads he forged with 2009's exceptionally well-received Insurgentes. A double album ('two 40-45 minute albums in the same package') Wilson has described it as "my biggest project to date."

Steven, along with Lasse Hoile, just put together a video preview to whet your appetite for the shows. The video features footage from his sold-out European run that ended October 31: bit.ly/u7xQHx
