RIVERSIDE BACK ON THE ROAD AND READY TO START A NEW CHAPTER 4th April 2017
After a long break from any live performances due to the tragic passing of founding member and guitarist Piotr Grudziński on February 21st 2016, Riverside have just successfully completed their return to the stage with two very special sold-out tribute shows in their hometown of Warsaw, Poland in front of more than 4,000 people.
The band have checked in with the following comment:
"Two amazing, cathartic, unforgettable, one-of-a-kind evenings with a one-of-a-kind audience. Now we know. We are definitely moving on.
"And our tour in April and May will also be cathartic and unforgettable – the opening of the new chapter."
