Having filled both Ancienne Belgique and Kursaal Oostende in 2019, Alan Parsons had intended to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his hit album 'The Turn Of A Friendly Card’ in the summer of 2021. But all is not lost, and he brings his well-oiled band to Arena5 in Brussels on 21 July 2022, where he’ll breathe new life into all of The Alan Parsons Project’s hits!
Alan Parsons’ career began as a sound engineer on such legendary albums as 'Abbey Road’ (The Beatles), 'Let It Be’ (The Beatles), 'Wild Life’ (Wings), 'Red Rose Speedway’ (Wings), 'Year of the Cat’ (Al Stewart) and 'Dark Side of The Moon’ (Pink Floyd). In 1975, Alan turned down a new invitation from Pink Floyd: "Can you help us with the recording of 'Wish You Were Here’?” He formed - together with Eric Woolfson - The Alan Parsons Project, and the rest is history.
They had massive hits and won eternal glory with such songs as 'Eye In The Sky’, 'Sirius’, 'Don’t Answer Me’, 'Games People Play’, 'Old and Wise’, 'Time’, 'Prime Time’, 'I Robot’ and 'Standing on Higher Ground’. In their heyday they never performed live, but since 1999 Alan Parsons has been playing his many hits live to sold-out venues. In 2017, the "35th Anniversary edition” of their 1982 masterpiece 'Eye In The Sky’ was released: a concept album with a future vision of art, religion, politics and culture in the twenty-first century.
