Australia’s foremost authority on progressive rock, Caligula’s Horse, have announced their return to Europe!

Joining them on tour will be fellow countrymen & progressive metal powerhouse Circles on their momentous return to Europe as main support, and instrumental guitar prodigy I Built The Sky (for their first European appearances).

The run is their most expansive and ambitious yet with 26 dates across October and November will see Caligula’s Horse make appearances at four festivals including
Euroblast, ProgPower, Very Prog Festival and AMFest.

Frontman Jim Grey comments: “We’ve wanted to put an ‘Aussie Invasion’ tour like this together for some time, and our first European headline tour seems like the perfect moment to do so. It’s really exciting to be sharing this experience alongside some of our best mates – Circles and I Built The Sky are incredible musicians and lovely guys, and we’re proud to take them with us this time around.

Before the band jet off to Europe they will play 3 shows on Australia’s east coast in August

These will be the LAST CHANCE fans will get to see the band in 2018.

The band will be playing their latest album, 2017’s Top 50 Aria Charting In Contact IN FULL!

In addition to experiencing this fantastic album from start to finish, Caligula’s Horse will also be playing a selection of fan requests!

Joining the band as special guest are two acts, that are no strangers to Caligula’s Horse fans.

James Norbert Ivanyi: One of the most original, commanding and versatile young guitarists on the scene today. James’ unique style of technical modern metal fused with the classic sounds of 1960’s and 1970’s progressive rock music have seen his fan base transcend generations and genres. His recent appearance at this year’s Progfest won him unanimous praise and he has become one of the most in demand online guitar teachers in the country!

Featuring former Caligula’s Horse guitarist, Zac Greensill, Opus Of A Machine are pushing the creative boundaries of alternative, progressive rock by combining the experimental nature of the genre’s foundation with an electro, pop edge. Technical wizardry meets emotional introspection. Pumping synths and skycraping melodies pinned down by a rock solid groove, this band was made to be seen live!

Playing smaller, more intimate venues, these shows are on track to SELL OUT!

Get in quick and secure your tickets now or you’ll be sure to miss one of the most potent progressive music shows of the year!


Friday, August 3: Oxford Art Factory, Sydney
