Nik Turner's Hawkwind

Nik Turner, the Hawkwind frontman, who has been touring with the long-winded (no pun intented) band name Nik Turner's Hawkwind Space Ritual for a while now, is soon heading out on tour again to play Hawkwind songs. It appears that he is now going by Nik Turner's Hawkwind, which is less fun but perhaps easier to digest. He will again be backed by the modern Kraut-rockers Hedersleben, who again will serve as the opening act.

The tour will stop in NYC for a show at The Grand Victory on 11/23, and tickets for that are on sale now. They'll also be stopping in NJ a bit later, playing at The Brighton Bar on 11/29 in Long Branch, and tickets for that one are also on sale.

Check out all tour dates and a Nik Turner interview with some live footage from 2013 below...
