Captain Beyond touring before Days of Darkness fest
Earlier this year, influential hard rock/heavy psych band Captain Beyond announced some festival appearances, including the MDF-presented Days of Darkness and Maryland Doom Fest, and they've since added some club shows happening too.
The tour includes a NYC show on August 22 at Saint Vitus (tickets). All known dates are listed below.
The only original member remaining is drummer Bobby Caldwell (who was also in Armageddon and Johnny Winter's band), after Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt (also of Iron Butterfly) passed away in 2012. Though he hasn't been with them since the early '70s, the singer on the band's first two (and most classic) albums was original Deep Purple singer Rod Evans. Stream the band's 1972 debut album below.
