Engine Rooms , West Quay Road

Founded by Edgar Froese in 1967, Tangerine Dream were one of the major forces behind the introduction of Electronic Music and the Synthesizer to popular culture. Throughout the past 5
decades the band's countless incarnations created more than 100 studio albums, some 60+ film
scores such as the US blockbuster movie soundtracks , *Thief* with James Caan or *The Sorcerer*
with Roy Scheider. Tangerine Dream got 7 Grammy nominations over the years.

Since Froese's passing in 2015 the line-up consists of remaining musicians Thorsten Quaeschning
(2005 to now), Hoshiko Yamane (since 2012) and Ulrich Schnauss (since 2014). TD's most recent
album 'Quantum Gate' (Kscope) became their best-selling record since 1987 and marked a
welcome return to the UK and European album charts - contributing the score to Rockstar Games'
record-breaking 'Grand Theft Auto V' as well as a number of high profile Syncs ('Stranger Things',
'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch', 'Homecoming' etc.) have further enhanced a resurgence of interest in
the The Dream's evocative soundscapes.

Subsequently the band's done some extensive touring across Europe in 2018 and 2019 -
reintroducing the Sequencer-driven sound for which Tangerine Dream became known in the
1970s. Highlights included appearances at the Dekmantel Festival Amsterdam, Oya Festival Oslo ,
a sold out show at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg and a sold out headline show at the Barbican
Hall in London.

Every performance is backed by a fantastic light and visual show. Towards the end of every
concert a 30+ minute real time composition/improvisation is being performed - turning every
concert into a unique experience and promising yet another captivating live electronic music
