(SPKR) Arthur Brown has received the 'Legend Award' at HRH Prog XII at Camp HRH in Great Yarmouth, UK last Wednesday evening, 8th of November 2023. It is a remarkable second time that the much admired and iconic British rock singer has been honored with this eminent award since receiving it first in 2021.
Arthur's ground-breaking work over several decades was also celebrated at the 2019 Prog Awards where he received the 'Visionary Artist Award', and by Classic Rock magazine that bestowed a 'Showman Award' on him in 2005.
Brown comments: "It is just wonderful that the people in the Prog community have found such enjoyment and value in my work", the legendary singer modestly writes. "My life has been music. I am incredibly lucky to have worked and still be performing and creating with so many talented artists and musicians from many genres - and of course my band as well as my management and creative team. I am also grateful for the support of Prophecy, Cherry Red, and Cleopatra and all those like HRH, who provide the avenues for my music to be heard and performed - and last but never least, I am enormously grateful to all the fans and supporters of my music. In stealing the words of another artist: I'm a lucky man. See you out on the long, long road in 2023 and 2024!"
He is still touring in support of his current album "Long Long Road" (2022). A new album is already in the pipeline for 2024. Please see below for currently confirmed live dates, which are including a UK tour and the prestigious Inferno Festival in Oslo as well as Prophecy Fest next year.
