The extra show at the O2 Academy in Glasgow takes place on Friday 6th November, meaning this is the first time the band have played 2 nights in Glasgow since 1987!  Cheers to fans North of the border for their continuing loyalty.

UK tour autumn/winter 2020

The band have announced that they intend to take a step back from extensive tours with a full production in the UK and have released the details of a ‘Final Full UK Tour’ which will consist of a mammoth 21 date itinerary spanning from late October through to late November. Following the sold out Caerphilly Castle gig last year, a special Welsh show takes place at the 5000 capacity Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff where the band played with Alice Cooper in October. Mid tour, there are a pair of Scottish dates in Aberdeen and Glasgow plus a gig in Stoke, where the band haven’t played in many years. The band make a return to the City Hall in Sheffield as well as the De Montfort Hall in Leicester. Late on in the tour, there’s a show at the Manchester O2 Apollo and a Guildford hometown show before the tour finale at the O2 Academy Brixton.

Special guests for the complete tour are fan favourites Ruts DC.

Tickets go on presale from 10am on Wednesday 29th January here

Looking back on 2019 - Baz's blog

As the years roll ceaselessly by, it’s very easy to forget some of the things you’ve done, places you’ve been, and the flotsam and jetsam of just, well, life really. It amazed me looking back on just one single year, how many things I hadn’t exactly forgotten, but had just brushed to one side after the event, and moved onto the next thing. That’s just the way it is when you’re busy…doesn’t have to be a band, it can be anything…the days stretch out, and you just get on with it don’t you?

Pete Howells RIP

“One more has gone to join the legions far away”.
Pete Howells my drummer from the Euroband and drummer for Manchester band the Drones, which is how I met him, passed away on Sunday 22nd of December aged 64 after a long illness.
He was a really good drummer but, more than that, just a lovely bloke. Some of you might have recognised him in the video of Freddie Laker.
After the Euroman Cometh album, I had him drumming on some follow up tracks which were never released.
Manchester has lost a beautiful soul.
