Tour extended to 8th January 2011
Following a sell out tour of the show in Australia and New Zealand, comic and musician Bill Bailey is to take a West End residency with his brand new live show, Dandelion Mind. Having performed there with his show Part Troll back in 2004, Bill will return to London’s Wyndhams Theatre on Charing Cross Road on 2 November 2010, where he will perform six shows a week through until 8 January 2010.
Featuring Bill’s trademark musical interludes, observations and stories of the road, Dandelion Mind will be based loosely on the theme of doubt (or will it?), as we follow Bill from his real-life saga of being trapped by the ash cloud to his barely contained rants about celebrity, TV, creationism and Michael Winner. He demonstrates new instruments, both ancient and modern, he sings an internet love song, a lament about punk heroes, Iranian hip-hop and plays a mean folk-bouzouki. Thomas the Doubter gets a new look, and Darwin’s curious obsessions and the myth of intelligent design are all worked over in Bill’s own surreal style. He revisits the music of his youth with a brand-new French Disco re-working of Gary Numan’s hit ‘Cars’, played in his own inimitable way, and maybe some Wurzels-based remixes of classic German techno, just your normal Bill Bailey gig then…
You can read a recent review of the show (from the warm-up dates at the Leicester Square Theatre) on the Chortle website.
