THE NEVER-ENDING STORY

With the "It Never Ends Tour," the tireless Canadian neo-prog legend SAGA will also visit Z7 in 2024. The group, led by original members Michael Sadler (vocals) and Ian Crichton (guitar), along with longtime keyboardist Jim Gilmour, has not lost any of its popularity over the years and presents itself on stage as fresh as ever.

In their long career, SAGA has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide to date and has played well over 1000 concerts in North and South America and Europe. And there is no end in sight. After all, everything that fans could wish for is still there: the distinctive guitar riffs, harmonizing with complex keyboard arrangements, and Michael Sadler's characteristic voice, which, even at 70 years old, has not lost any of its volume, perfectly rounding out SAGA's sound. Following the successful "Vital Signs Tour 2023," during which the band toured Canada and Europe, SAGA will hit the road again in 2024. The band has experienced a sort of renaissance in recent years. Their music has been newly discovered or rediscovered by many music fans. "Probably because we've never been better live," remarks SAGA frontman Michael Sadler, adding, "We've always been honest with the audience and ourselves, never compromising, never making music just for the charts. I'll only stop when it no longer feels right to go on stage." It is perhaps the unique blend of years of experience, a continually bubbling source of new ideas, and their distinctive overall sound that has kept Saga at the forefront for 47 years now. Whenever founding members Michael Sadler and Ian Crichton make music together with keyboardist Jim Gilmour (since 1980), the unmistakable result is Saga. And with drummer Mike Thorne (2012) and bassist Dusty Chesterfield (2018), the well-rehearsed team has found powerful allies who fit perfectly into the band dynamic. The fact that SAGA live is still one of the best offerings that the progressive rock scene has to offer, the five musicians have impressively proven at Z7 time and time again in recent years.
