“We had our first rehearsal at the beginning of August, which under the circumstances went very well.” Pye also stated that “the enthusiasm from the band was infectious and I had forgotten how much I had really missed playing with them.” A longer rehearsal is booked for October when Geoffrey Richardson is back from touring with Murray Head. The outline of the set is already agreed and will feature classic Caravan tunes together with some new material.
