Pictures from Mirek Plodzik, 15 June 2002

Procol preparations inside the enormous Spodek auditorium in Katowice

Outside the auditorium, with a poster the size of a lorry ('truck'). Poland does Procol proud
for publicity! Read
Mirek's report online.

Sound gear amasses on the Spodek stage

The team arrives at Katowice: Mark Lundquist, Gary Brooker, and host Mac Gajda

Foreground: Mark Fendt (swagman), Gary Brooker, Graham Ewins (sound)

Press Conference: Mac Gajda (translator), Mark Brzezicki (perkusja), Matt Pegg (gitara basowa), Gary Brooker (spiew, fortepian), Geoff Whitehorn (gitara) and Matthew Fisher (organy)

See the news section at 'Interia', with relevant interviews and illustrations here, here and here

Journalists at the Press Conference: have a look at the news section at Wirtualna Polska dated 15 June, quoting Gary from the press conference, and including one concert photo.

Swag: Mark and Jasiek Gajda on the Procol merchandise stall

The band in full cry at Spodek ... Matthew Fisher's jacket catches the light

Mirek writes, 'Sorry for not high resolution and poor quality of some of them. It is pity the photos from the concert are such poor but I hope they give you any appreciation about the concert.'

Two more press notices. Directly above the Procol review from Newsweek; right is from Wprost (very popular weekly) and further above is from Gazeta Wyborcza (the biggest daily in Poland).

Read Procol reviews at ONET (the biggest Polish website) and at Dziennik Zachodni (the biggest daily on Slask region)

See also 19 June's online version of Gazeta Wyborcza, the biggest Polish daily, containing one big page about Procol Harum by Wojciech Mann, the well-known TV presenter, who also works in Polish radio 3, which played AWSoP twice in one morning. See also here for a less-than favourable gig report, however!
