Raised in the West Country, the Ashton Gate show will be a real homecoming for Bill. He says: “Performing at Ashton Gate is a great thrill for me, because it’s a combination of two of my favourite elements in a show – it’s outdoors and it’s in the West Country.
“I always feel that any shows I do in the West Country are homecoming gigs. But there’s also something special about doing a show outdoors in England.
“I’ve played to outdoor crowds at the Glastonbury Festival and recently at the Eden Project, and there’s always a terrific atmosphere, almost anarchic, which I really enjoy.”
He says the Bristol show will include references to nuclear power, beetles, the future of the internet, worms, hawks and Lady Gaga; “basically a guide to modern living and the all important musical marriage of Kraftwerk and The Wurzels”.
