For the first time, progressive rock band Camel will play in Israel, on May 25 and 26 in Binyamina’s Shuni Ampitheater.

Created in England in 1971 by Andrew Latimer and considered a founder of progressive rock, Camel has produced 14 original studio albums showcasing a unique sound that incorporates elements from other genres, including jazz and Baroque music.

There have been changes in the band lineup over the years as well a hiatus in the mid-1980s and some health problems for some of the musicians, but Camel began touring again in 2013 and is now on the road for The Moonmadness Tour 2018, performing music from a vaunted 1976 album of that name.

Camel is beloved in Israel for its influence on the neo-progressive rock genre, and even has a tribute band, The Humps, which routinely performs in Israel and toured through Europe last year.
