Immediately after the album Cyclone had been recorded and released, Tangerine Dream did an extensive European tour throughout Europe, performing a total of 32 gigs in Germany, France, Spain, Belgium and the UK. The concerts were not based on the vocal side of Cyclone at all, just music in the same vein as Madrigal Meridian; three long heavy tracks with occasional shouting rather than singing.
Edgar Froese: "It was a try [and] it was successful -- whatever 'successful' means to the audience, but success means identifying the situation. The music needs to feel something and I couldn't feel anything. It was just harsh. There were no new directions -- just going backwards. But not back to the roots. And so right after the tour we split up. [...] I've been working for ten years now, and I want things to be more experimental. He [Steve Jolliffe, ed.] was running things backwards, so with all these acoustic and mike troubles there was a strange atmosphere, and my way of thinking was totally different."
