Claudia Brücken and Susanne Freytag confirm ‘xPropaganda’ gig

Claudia Brücken and Susanne Freytag from Propaganda have confirmed details of next year’s gig at The Garage in London, where they will play 1985’s A Secret Wish album in its entirety under the moniker ‘xPropaganda’.

The concert was mentioned a few weeks ago when the details of the 2018 ‘Art of the Album’ reissue of A Secret Wish were announced.

The official announcement was a minimalistic affair, with the following statement under the xPropaganda banner:

“Claudia Brücken and Susanne Freytag perform A Secret Wish at The Garage, London on Saturday 24 March 2018″.

There is no indication at the moment of who will join them on stage. Tickets are available from alttickets.com and ticketweb.co.uk.

A Secret Wish will be reissued on 26 January 2018. You can read more about that here.

Darn it! I’ve found out about this and have missed it.

Seems there is now a second date at the Garage on March 23rd.


There is a couple of radio tapes digitized if you look hard enough on google..


Which version of the album in its entirety? :D

Bobby's Dad

Maybe one day I’ll get around to digitising something…. Currently they only exist on cassette.


That would be very much appreciated, for sure!

Bobby's Dad

After 31 years, I still remember touring with them like it was just the other week.
Luckily, I still have a bunch of desk tape recordings which I still listen to often….
Ah…. those were the days.
I’d love to hear them again, but now that I live in Oz, it’s just not gonna happen. :(

Andrew James

Hang on, you have tapes of their 1985 tour?


Yeah…what he said! I’d love to have a listen to those tapes!

Looks like still tickets on Ticketweb?
Would’ve travelled to this but already got Steven Wilson in Glasgow the same night! Oh well, money saved!


They do have fans outside of London as well, a couple of gigs in the North would have been welcome. To be fair they are not the only group in the past couple of years to do London only gigs.

fair point. surely the demand is there although perhaps its down to financial reasons/economies of scale.whatever though i suspect it won’t happen for them to travel north.


They do have fan outside the UK as well, a couple of gigs in Europe would have been welcome.


Yes – also a gig in Cardiff would satisfy south Wales and the South West!

Andrew James

Perhaps Dinas Powys parish hall :)

David M

Beaufort Ballroom for the valleys …


Sold out now apparently.


Thanks Paul, booked!


Hope this will be recorded and released at least on CD and LP, as well as filmed and released on Bluray and/or DVD.


After holding out for a vinyl reissue for a few years, I finally managed to get a pristine condition copy of A Secret Wish on vinyl last month, so I won’t be needing the repressing. However, I wish I had that 2010 deluxe edition.


They will also play in Belgium at W-Festival in August 19th. (The line-up was announced at the beginning of November. They were then announced as D:uel)
