With their inspired brand of progressive rock, Focus manifested themselves at the start of the '70s as the most successful and appreciated of all the Dutch pop-rock exports.

Fronted by founding member Thijs Van Leer, and best known for their hits Hocus Pocus, House of The King and Sylvia, as well as critically acclaimed albums Moving Waves, Focus 3 and Hamburger Concerto, the Dutch music masters are back with their tenth album, which is guaranteed to please their legions of fans! 

After a comeback in the early 2000s, the band regrouped with a fantastic new line-up. Along with Thijs van Leer on vocals, flute and keyboards, back on the drums is famed Focus drummer Pierre van der Linden. Internationally renowned for his rhythmic skills, Pierre remains a defining factor in their sound. Guitarist Menno Gootjes, who participated in the group at an earlier stage, and acclaimed bass player Udo Pannekeet, complete the band's current line-up.
 
There is a rejuvenated passion amongst the band as it enters the studio to record Focus 11, so don't miss this show, because a new Focus era has arrived!
