After his great performance at the Night Of The Prog 2017, Franck Carducci now returns to the Loreley on 15 July 2023!
His first album Oddity was full of promises for the start of an epic journey but it is on stage where Franck starts to carve his signature–costumes, make-up, psychedelic atmospheres, humour and sensuality. Yes, you think of Genesis, of Alice Cooper and David Bowie, of Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd too.
But eventually, you will no longer think of anybody else.
Following the release of the highly anticipated album Torn Apart, featuring special guest Steve Hackett (Genesis), the Tearing the Tour Apart hit the road in Europe and Franck reinforced his show as one of the most irresistible in the rock scene. 2017 saw the release of a live DVD/BluRay of that tour, which ended on stage of the Night of the Prog festival, where Franck and his band won the audience by storm.
Franck Carducci, as Master of Ceremonies, leads his Rock ‘n Roll Circus where each of his players embodies a side of his music.
Who can explain how a 12 string guitar extra neck would be added to a bass guitar, how a powerful guitar riff would go with a hot belly dance, or a Mellotron solo would end up in a duel with a didgeridoo?
Who can also explain how Achilles, guitar and sword in hand, would kidnap a sensual Alice from her Wonderland?
However, let them pick you up and take you in the palm of their hands – you won’t want to leave until the very last note of the concert.
Your senses will not be given a second of rest while these characters take you to a place where dreams are kings, emotions are queens and musical genres are crossed with no borders.
September 2017 was the start of On The Road to Nowhere, where the band won the “Best Overseas Band”-award from UK magazine Classic-Rock Society.
After the release of his 3rd opus The Answer in November 2019, Franck hit the road again in 2021/2022 with his “Fantastic Squad” for The Answer Tour with a highlight supporting Sting in front of 15,000 people.
Immerse yourself into the spectacle and let yourself go as you embark on a journey into a colourful, flamboyant and fun musical universe, which is open and accessible to all.
Franck Carducci and his band The Fantastic Squad will perform on the Loreley on Saturday, 15 July 2023.
