    Default Coming to a Venue Near You: On Tour Soon

    I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread where we can alert forum members to upcoming tours that others may not be aware of? (Not sure if this is the right room?) May be worth making it a sticky?

    Anyway, to kick it off, my beloved Tina Dico is on tour in February - I know I've banged on about her a lot in the Spinning Today thread, but if female singer-songwriter's are up your street then you should check her out both live and recorded - maybe even live recorded

    I can't wait!

    Glad that you enjoy one of our minor exports... well minor compared to beer, bacon, butter, cheese and lego that is.
    Personally I find her music a bit vanilla; a couple of catchy tunes but in general vanilla.
    But she is easy to the eye

    Thanks Jan - well she's not quite as good as Lego, but otherwise she's top in my book! Oh yeah, she is gorgeous too, now you mention it - I hadn't noticed before!

    Default Sophie Barker - Limited UK Dates

    Well, what a success this idea for a thread turned out to be!

    OK, I'll keep on with it!

    Just ordered tickets to see Sophie Barker, one of the other female voices made "famous" by her appearances on early Zero7 albums, as well as working with Groove Armada, The Egg, Tocadisco, Grooverider and Bliss - and I've previously "banged on" about her 2005 debut solo album "Earthbound" (which is fab, but too short, at 34 minutes long! )

    As well as the dates announced, "Seagull" the long awaited follow up to "Earthbound" is out on 9th May.

    Here's the tour information:

    17/05/11 Norwich (Arts Centre)
    19/05/11 London (Jazz Cafe)
    20/05/11 Nottingham (Bodega)
    23/05/11 Manchester (Band On The Wall)
    24/05/11 Bristol (Thekla)

    Full details here

    Well, this thread continues to be a triumph...

    The Sophie Barker tour appears to have been postponed until September - rather annoyingly, I haven't been advised by the venue, found out by accident! Luckily didn't find out on the night after travelling for best part of 2 hours... then I'd have been really peed off...

    Thanks Mark! At least it will give me the chance to get to know her new album properly before the show.

    Meanwhile, if anyone else knows of any forthcoming gigs that others may find of interest, please feel free to use this thread for the intended purpose...

    Nice one Tim!

    The spooky thing is, the only time I saw Tori Amos was before she hit the "big time" - at Norwich Arts Centre.

    Thanks for the heads up on the tour.
