Many of you know that I have been playing with Maggie Reilly for many years now. Some of you may have even been lucky enough to actually see the band play live at some point. But for those of you in the UK the opportunity to see the band has been a little scarce shall we say. Aside from a couple of small shows at the Tron Theatre a few years ago I have never played a UK show with Maggie. We tend to tour around Germany and Scandanivia for the most part. But the wait is finally over boys and girls!
Next Monday 16th December we are playing a show at Bush Hall in Shepherds Bush to celebrate the release of Maggie’s new record Heaven Sent.
Here’s a little video of us playing her latest single Juliet at a radio concert in Hamburg a couple of months ago, in case you haven’t heard Maggie before. I’m sure you have…
Seriously don’t miss this show if you can make it. I’m sure there will be more UK dates to follow next year but for the time being it’s the only one planned and I’ve certainly waited a long time for this one! The band features Stuart MacKillop on keyboards, Davie Dunsmuir on guitar, and Tony Soave on drums.
Tickets are £15.00 and can be purchased online via the Bush Hall website. Hopefully see you all there!
Good morning folks,
Now I realise that I’ve yet to post anything on the blog from the Duckworth Lewis Method tour which ended a couple of weeks ago but I’ve barely been home in between that and the recent Maggie Reilly radio tour in Germany. I shall sort this out soon enough don’t you worry…
We spent a week and a half driving across Germany playing a series of live radio concerts, many of which were also video streamed live over the internet. I did my best to post links to the live streams over on my Facebook page and Twitter so hopefully some of you watched one of the shows. There are a bunch of photos from the first show in Erfurt on the MDR page if you fancy having a look.
So Maggie’s brand new album Heaven Sent is officially out now so you can go and grab yourself a copy. You can order a CD HERE.
The first single from the album is called Juliet. And as if by magic, here’s a video from our Hamburg radio show!
We heading to Finland next week to five shows. Looks like we’re playing some rather lovely venues. Here’s the rundown:
Tuesday 22 Helsinki, Kulttuuritalo
Wednesday 23 Tampere, Tampere-talo
Thursday 24 Lahti, Sibeliustalo
Saturday 26 Oulu, Club Teatria
Sunday 27 Pori, Promenade Theatre
Hopefully see some of you there. Until next time…
We’re almost ready for take off folks…
The brand new album from The Duckworth Lewis Method is out today!! If you can find a record shop still standing (!) go out right now and grab yourself a copy. The band has a sparkly new website which looks fantastic and they put out a video for the first single It’s Just Not Cricket. It looks a bit like this…
