Bill has today announced he will tour his smash hit live show Dandelion Mind across the UK this coming winter. Following a sell out tour of the show in Australia and New Zealand, Bill took up a West End residency with the show last autumn.
Kicking off in Birmingham on Tuesday 1st November, Bill will now bring the show to Newcastle, Sheffield, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Manchester, Nottingham and Glasgow, throughout November 2011.
Featuring Bill’s trademark musical interludes, observations and stories of the road, Dandelion Mind is based loosely on the theme of doubt, plus barely contained rants about celebrity, TV, 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, the finer points of nuclear physics 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 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…
The full list of dates where Bill will be playing are as follows:
01 – BIRMINGHAM LG Arena
02 – NEWCASTLE Metro Radio Arena
