Six years after its last visit in Israel, English progressive band Camel is returning for one show on May 22, at the Caesarea amphitheater.

The English progressive rock band is celebrating 50 years of music, with founding member and guitarist Andrew Latimer, along with bassist Colin Bass, drummer Denis Clement and keyboard player Pete Jones.

Camel was founded in Guildford, Surrey, by Latimer in 1971, and released 14 studio albums along with numerous singles, gaining a cult following for their albums “Mirage” and “The Snow Goose.”

There were changes in the band lineup over the years as well a hiatus in the mid-1980s following some health problems for some of the musicians, but Camel began touring again in 2013.

The band is beloved in Israel for its influence on the neo-progressive rock genre, and a tribute band, The Humps, regularly performs in Israel.

Tickets for the May 22 show start at NIS 254 and can be purchased through promoter Shuki Weiss.
