Call it a Space Ritual: Nik Turner’s Hawkwind will be performing in Winnipeg on Monday, Sept. 22 at the Pyramid Cabaret. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 18 and are $17 in advance at Into the Music, Music Trader.
Portland doom metal band Witch Mountain and Krautrock act Hedersleben are also on the bill.
Turner, 73, was a member of the pioneering U.K. space rock band Hawkwind and was instrumental during its prolific 1970s heyday, initially recruited for his experimental approach to music and oddball stage persona. He would be dismissed and re-recruited by the band several times over the next few decades. (Lemmy of Motorhead also did a stint in Hawkwind.)
Turner now performs Hawkwind material as Nik Turner’s Hawkwind. He released a solo album called Space Gypsy in 2013.
