Procol Harum at the Royal Festival Hall - live review
Venue: Royal Festival Hall, London
Procol shine on their 50th birthday
Over-exuberant behaviour often causes havoc at 50th birthday parties. This evening, fans from all over the world have gathered at the Royal Festival Hall to celebrate the half-century career of Procol Harum, as the veteran band perform with the Senbla Symphony Orchestra and the English Chamber Choir – though the night comes perilously close to ending in disaster.
The additional players and singers sit out opener Shine On Brightly, but it only takes a moment or two of their participation on Homburg to reveal that tonight will be a bit special.
