Franck’ Carducci's first album Oddity was full of promises for the start of an epic journey. It is on stage where that journey picks up steam and where Franck creates what has become his signature – costumes, make-up, psychedelic atmospheres, humour and sensuality. Yes, you think of Genesis, Alice Cooper and David Bowie, of Led Zeppelin and Pink-Floyd too. But, eventually, you will no longer think of anybody else. There is no one else out there who comes even close to Franck Carducci and his band.
Following the release of the highly anticipated Torn Apart, featuring special guest Steve Hackett (Genesis), the Tearing the Tour Apart hit the road in Europe and Franck reinforced his show as one of the most irresistible on the rock scene. 2017 saw the release of a live DVD/BluRay of the tour, which, after about 100 dates, ended with a standing ovation on stage of Loreley’s Night of the Prog festival in front of 6,000 people.
Carducci, as Master of Ceremonies, leads his Rock ‘n Roll Circus where each of his players embodies a side of his music. Who can explain how a 12-string guitar extra neck would be added to a bass guitar, how a powerful guitar riff would go with a hot belly dance, or a Mellotron solo would end up in a duel with a didgeridoo? Who can also explain how Achilles, guitar and sword in hand, would kidnap a sensual Alice from her Wonderland?
Let them pick you up and take you in the palm of their hands – you won’t want to leave until the very last note of the concert. Your senses will not be given a second of rest while these characters take you to a place where dreams are kings, emotions are queens, and musical genres are crossed with no borders.
September 2017 was the start of On The Road to Nowhere where the band won the Best Overseas Band award from UK magazine, Classic-Rock Society.
After the release of his 3rd opus, The Answer, in November 2019, Franck will hit the road again with his Fantastic Squad in 2021/22 for The Answer Tour.
Immerse yourself into the spectacle and let yourself go as you embark on a journey into a colourful, flamboyant, and fun musical universe, which is open and accessible to all.
