Pendragon along IQ and Pallas are the three bands that came right after Marillion to promote what became the New era of progressive rock in the Genesis mold and tradition, yet much more accessible at times but not least intricate or less conceptual.
With great albums such as "The World", "The Window of Life" and "Master of Illusion" which were released thorough the late 90's, it became pretty obvious that they where no a mere Clone band of the aforementioned groups. Let's not forget that among their personnel there where musicians who worked with Steve Hackett, later collaborations included: Arena, Shadowland and the more Stronger heavy acts such as Powerquest and Dragonforce.

Neo-prog-rock giants' outstanding come-back! Shortly after the release of their latest album "Pure," undoubtedly one of the most noteworthy prog-rock releases of the year 2008, the legendary Pendragon once more visited the Wyspianski Theater in Katowice, Poland, to celebrate the band's 30th anniversary.
With their outstanding performance, possibly one of the best the Polish audience had ever had a chance to witness, and with their line-up strengthened by the addition of a new drummer Scott Higham (also known from his past cooperation with Clive Nolan on the project Caamora), the band surely proved that they're still a formidable force on the prog-rock scene! This special limited edition digipak with 2CD features the recording of the band's outstanding performance in Wyspianski Theatre. The DVD features 150 minutes of Pendragon live. Also included are interviews and plenty of behind-the-scenes footage.
