Live Preview: Colosseum

The progressive jazz-rockers get ready to say farewell in style.

Drummer Jon Hiseman explains why the veteran British group are splitting up – and for good this time.

How did Colosseum come to record again after an 11-year gap?

The trouble with Colosseum is that we never think it’s ended. However, we are at the mercy of Barbara [Thompson, his wife and the band’s saxophonist] having Parkinson’s disease. We had thought we were done in 2008, but then after a big fight with the National Health the latest miracle drug came along.
