Having been 29 long years since Eddie Jobson
performed on the west coast, CalProg is ecstatic to present this
progressive rock icon and his all-star band performing the legendary music
that made him famous.

This tour will mark the first live performance of UK material in
31 years (from the guy who composed and produced it), plus classic Crimson
and more. Besides being a musical pioneer, Eddie has been called "one
of the most technically advanced players in the world". When you
throw in this once in a lifetime lineup and the intimacy of the Center
Theater the inevitable result is a magical night of progressive music that
is both timeless and historic.
The Whittier performance will be the last stop of a tour that crosses
Japan and headlines at NearFest. We at CalProg are honored to welcome
Eddie and U-Z to the west coast and our stage.
As always, this is an all ages / no alcohol event. Tickets are only
available at CalProg.com. You will need a credit card or PayPal account to
make the purchase.
