Only a few days left until one of the biggest and most ambitious events in the world of progressive music this year — or maybe even this decade, for that matter — will take place at Rotterdam, Netherlands. A full-scale theatrical performance of one of the most famous concept rock-operas writted and recorded in the new millenium, Ayreon’s The Human Equation, will be staged at Nieuwe Luxor Theater, stretching over the next weekend from 18th to 20th of September, and thousands of fans from all over the world will be flocking to the city to see this unique show with their own eyes.

The Late Great Film Maker, Stanley Kubrick
The words of the late great American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer and editor Stanley Kubrick who is rightfully regarded as one of the greatest filmmakers of all time can certainly apply to Ayreon, Star One, Guilt Machine and Ambeon mastermind, Arjen Anthony Luccassen.
Yeah, yeah, I know I have been talking about my deep admiration of Arjen Lucassen here – a lot… But, I have three very important reasons to do so again today!!!…
First, his solo album is on its way! YAY!!!
Here’s the trailer! Looks awesome!
Second, I am going to interview this prog-god! I have already ordered my 14 cm high heels to meet this (both literal and figurative) giant! Haha!
Last, but not least , today is his birthday!
So, for your enjoyment my beloved friends, here are two choice songs from Lucassen projects!
Today, I’ve got a wonderful song handpicked for your enjoyment from amongst beautiful projects of a very brilliant musician… Yes, I’m talking about the Dutch musician, vocalist, and composer Arjen Lucassen…
All of his work, without fail, I find very tasty! Lucassen is not only the mastermind behind these projects but with each song, he also gives the audience a wonderful show of musicianship… Ayreon, Guilt Machine, Ambeon and Star One – our pick for today – all bear his signature. All of these projects offer brilliant atmospheres, mind blowing riffs and solos, impressive vocals and expert drumming and keyboarding.
