Arena will appear at OhioProg some 16 years after their inception. Arena's book, more like a novel reads like a who's who in modern progressive rock. Clive Nolan; keyboards (Pendragon, Shadowland, Strangers on a Train, Casino, Nolan & Wakeman, etc), John Mitchell; guitar (Kino, It Bites, FROST*, etc), Mick Pointer; drums (ex-Marillion, Script for a Jester's Tour), Paul Manzi; vocals and the return of John Jowitt (Jadis, arK, ex-IQ, etc) on bass round out this all-star line-up. This latest chapter in Arena sees a brand new album titled The Seventh Degree of Separation due out November of 2011. Their first since 2005's Pepper's Ghost. Long-time fans will no doubt be excited to see the band return stateside and feature material from their vast back catalog and spotlight tracks from their new release.
