After a couple of months lay off, I’m itching to get back on the road later this week, kicking off the “Complete Renaissance Men Tour 2016” in Hull on Friday Oct 2nd…..20 concerts, going all the way through to December; in Liverpool/Merseyside, Manchester (supporting Fisherman’s Friends), Greater London (Uxbridge), The Midlands, East Yorkshire, the North East, etc etc…and 7 housegigs (3 in Wales alone) …all ticket details available on website…and a list of all gigs is in the column on the right.
I’ll be accompanied by my compadre Les Glover at all gigs, and occasionally with the full band (The Men of a Certain Age), and no doubt the usual array of ne’redowells will be joining me for the odd song/encore. I’ll be trying out a few new songs, as well as songs from both albums, and even delving occasionally into my back catalogue (Yachts, The Christians).
Talking of housegigs, Paul and Helen (who made my Settle Down live DVD) are setting about making a documentary about them….they’re funding it using a crowdfunding campaign. If anyone fancies getting involved, you’d better step on it, as the deadline for sponsoring finishes at 12pm Sept 30…more info here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/a-documentary-about-house-gigs#/updates
Look forward to catching some of you out on the road.
