Hit Week Presents : Pfm (Premiata Forneria Marconi) – 40th Aniversary tour – Friday nov. 13th 2015 – 8.00 pm
Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM) (translation: Award-winning Marconi Bakery) is the world famous Italian progressive rockband. They were the first Italian group to gain success abroad, entering both the British and American charts. Between 1973 and 1977 they released five albums with English lyrics. They also had several successful European and American tours, playing at the popular Reading Festival in England and on a very popular national television programme in the U.S.
PFM introduced new sounds, such as the synthesizer, to the Italian musical world. They were also among the firsts to combine symphonic classical and traditional Italian musical influences in a rock music context. Such innovations and longevity have placed them among the most important bands in the international Progressive rock genre.
From Japan to the US, from Korea to the UK, from Canada to Mexico, everywhere PFM are hailed as prog music masters.
