Legendary Dutch progressive rockers Kayak have announced their farewell tour, set to take place in April & May2022. These shows will see them perform tracks from across their career, including their latest album Out Of This World released in early 2021. Originally formed in 1972, this will be the last time the band tour.

Léon-Philippe Parez states about the track Waiting, «Being a Kayak fan and a Bowie fan, I am pleased to hear that Kayak creates eclectic music, in different styles. This sounds like a Bowie song.   No, this is not a typical Kayak epic song, and this a damn good track. On stage it is going to be huge».

Band lead Ton Scherpenzeel comments: «It’s been a great ride but we’ve come to the end of the line. As the other band members would have liked to continue, the decision became extra difficult. And as a musician I still do enjoy playing itself. But it takes a lot more than just that to make a good tour, and circumstances for bands like us are not getting any easier. In that respect I feel I’ve reached the limit of my capabilities. And however sad it may be, I’d rather stop too early than go on too long».

Kayak does not rule out that the band might get together again for special projects or occasions, but as a touring unit, it will be over after May 21. The last show in The Netherlands will be on May 14 in De Vorstin in Hilversum- accidentally the town where it all started back in 1972. The track Mystery,

Out Of This World, the band’s eighteenth studio album, with 15 new tracks, spanning 70 minutes of energetic and incredibly diverse material- though still very much recognizable as Kayak. It is clear that the new found energy has gained even more momentum since Hans Eijkenaar rejoined the group. The legendary track Starlight Dancer,

Although they were forced to cancel all tours because Ton Scherpenzeel suffered a heart attack at the end of 2019, and immediately after that because of the Covid pandemic, we’re hearing a band that, since the demise of Pim Koopman in 2009, has not sounded more together, balanced and motivated.

The current line-up of the band is as follows:

Ton Scherpenzeel – Keyboards, lead and backing vocals

Bart Schwertmann – Lead and backing vocals

Marcel Singor – Guitar, lead and backing vocals

Kristoffer Gildenlöw – Bass, lead and backing vocals

Hans Eijkenaar- Drums

Om Ulf Backstrøm (7105 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
