Cruise To The Edge




March 26 MSC Poesia (Caribbean Sea)


In November the official Tangerine Dream Newsletter announced: "Tangerine Dream are very happy to announce [..] their participation in the "Cruise To The Edge" -- starting 25 March 2013 (5 days) from Fort Lauderdale (near Miami) -- performing with legends like Yes, Steve Hackett, Saga, Carl Palmer, UK, Nektar and many others. This will be a very unique event -- don't miss it if you have the possibility to take some days off! All fans joining the tour will of course get the opportunity for a meet & greet."


Unfortunately, this TD concert had to be cancelled. On March, 3rd the following announcement was made: "Tangerine Dream unfortunately have to cancel their participation on the CTTE tour [...] due to the illness of two long-time members of the band (Edgar and Linda) -- their doctors interdicted them to fly.
Edgar had an accident on icy ground and unfortunately broke his jaw -- he already went through surgery and is recovering slowly.
Both, Edgar and Linda, are very sad about their situation and apologize very much for the inconveniences caused, but they have no influence in this kind of force majeure.
We try to convince the organizer to invite us for one of the next cruises and will let you know then."


In fact, Tangerine Dream were invited again for Cruise To The Edge 2014.


Part of the music intended to be played during the cruise were presented in April 2013 on the album Cruise To Destiny. These recordings origin from a rehearsal session in January 2013.
