Cats In Space

"I absolutely believe CATS in SPACE are one of the greatest bands on this planet right now...” - Fireworks Magazine, UK

"The best band to emerge since the turn of the Millennium” - Sea of Tranquility, USA

Imagine, if you will, a heady mix of Queen, ELO, Elton John and all things 70s... then you have CATS in SPACE – a band brimming with majestic songs, boasting soaring vocal harmonies, power chord guitars, thundering drums and bass as well as huge, symphonic keyboards.

Landing on the UK Rock scene in 2015, they quickly built up a reputation as one of the finest Classic Rock bands to emerge this century and within a short space of time, and with two critically acclaimed albums under their belts, they had toured the major UK arenas with STATUS QUO, DEEP PURPLE & THUNDER. They also featured with PHIL COLLINS and BLONDIE at London’s Hyde Park. Subsequent headline shows, touring further hit albums, along with major festival appearances (including a special show at The London Palladium with BONNIE TYLER) cemented the band’s reputation. Their studio albums have all hit the top regions of the UK charts with the last two releases making Number one in the National Rock Chart.

The band’s 2023 ‘KICKSTART THE SUN’ tour saw a unique visual stage production which elevated the band’s live reputation further and was described in the press as “a rock show like no other that is the best-value-for-money production ever seen in theatres”. Their recently released live album ‘FIRE IN THE NIGHT’ was recorded on tour and has wowed the music press once again.

Now in 2024 the band are returning in style with their magnificent ‘TIME MACHINE’ tour which looks set to run throughout Europe until the end of 2025. The new album, being the bands’ sixth studio offering, is once again, a huge musical feast conjuring up the finest sounds of the Classic Rock years of the 1970s and early 80s and the first for their new label Cherry Red Records.

The band members boast impressive pedigrees, having played with such musical giants as ASIA, IAN GILLAN, T’PAU, THE SWEET, ROBIN TROWER and JEFF WAYNE’S WAR OF THE WORLDS. Their musical history and arsenal of incredible songs, will guarantee to deliver a musical feast of the highest calibre with an evening of original rock music unequalled by anyone on today's scene..

This is no tribute, this is the real deal... Get ready for take off!
  
“...an unstoppable avalanche of preposterous proportions, a theatre extravaganza that was pure entertainment for over two hours. They pulled at every emotion last night, from the simplistic ‘Hero’ through to the bombastic ‘Bootleg Bandoleros’, it was like they were hard wired into your nervous system inducing unadulterated adulation...”
Rob Evans - AOR Underground

“Take your pick of any song played tonight and you’ll get lost in a mini-symphony with its own story, leaving us once again marvelling at the strength of the catalogue and the power of what had been witnessed tonight.”
Liz Medhurst – METAL TALK

"Horns parp, choirs wail, guitars soar like roving search beams and Queen's 'A Night At The Opera' hears it all and goes home with its tail between its legs"
- Classic Rock Magazine, UK - Top 50 album of the year

“It’s escapism not heard on this kind of cinematic scale since ‘Quadrophenia’ and ‘War of the Worlds’...Utterly show stopping...”
-Tone Music, Japan
