Bill Bailey Live 2010 Tour

Posted by Helperworme on April 9th, 2010

Are you sure about our world? How many things do you actually know for certain?

There’s not much about the world that is simply black and white, apart from pandas maybe and OK, skunks but that’s about it. Most of our world is a grey area, and this is where Bill Bailey is going on his next tour. A magical musical, mystery tour through a human history filled with doubt, to a place where certainty reigns and where religion, death, egg-custard, twigs, and Giant African Land Snails are here to stay. So do you refuse to accept there are things you don’t understand, do you desire to see the world only in black and white, or do you accept doubt into your life, make uncertainty your friend, do you embrace the greyness?

There is a also a complex subtext about clouds, squirrels and getting older, but you’ll have to figure that out for yourself.

Tickets for Bill’s new tour will go on sale on Friday 9th April at 10am. All tickets are £15 excluding booking fees where applicable.

Details of all of the dates being played and ticket booking contact details can be found on the Tour page.

Bill to Play Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol

Posted by Helperworme on April 9th, 2010

We can confirm that Bill will be playing at Ashton Gate Stadium – the home of Bristol City Football Club – on Tuesday June 15th 2010.

A total of 15,000 tickets go on sale from 9am Friday April 9th priced between £30 and £40.

Seats can be purchased online at www.ashtongatestadium.co.uk or www.seetickets.com; or by phoning the stadium hotline 0871 222 66 66 (option 1, and then option 2 listening out for “concert tickets”).

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”.
