How wonderful it is to be able to run that headline!
Kate has announced a series of live dates in August and September at London’s Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith. This venue is the Hammersmith Odeon as was, where the Tour of Life ended 35 years ago. All details below, and we are gathering ALL the news and press reports in this post below also.
We’d like to wish Kate all the very best on this incredible new adventure – a big hug from us! Peter, Krys, Dave and Seán x
The performances will be called “Before the Dawn” and Kate says on the official site:
“I am delighted to announce that we will be performing some live shows this coming August and September.
I hope you will be able to join us and I look forward to seeing you there.
We’ll keep you updated with further news on the web site.
Meanwhile, all details of concert dates and tickets are in the note below.
Very best wishes,
The dates are:
AUGUST: 26th, 27th, 29th, 30th.
SEPTEMBER: 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 9th, 10th, 12th, 13th, 16th, 17th, 19th
Tickets will go on sale at 9.30 am (GMT) on the 28th March 2014 and will be available exclusively from the following agents: www.eventim.co.uk www.gigsandtours.com
Please note that tickets are NOT available from the venue Box Office.
Additional order enquiries should be directed to the Eventim customer service department at: email@example.com or 08443760021
Ticket purchases are limited to a maximum of 4 per order. For example, you can try to purchase up to 4 tickets for just one of the 15 concerts, or 4 tickets for 4 separate shows.
Please particularly note the ticket security and resale measures: the name of the lead booker will be printed on the first ticket. As the number of tickets is limited they will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Tickets cannot be resold or transferred under any circumstances.
The promoter says: The lead booker will be asked to present ID to gain entry into the venue. Failure to adhere the terms and conditions may result in the customer’s order being void. There are no exceptions to this rule.
Demand for tickets is likely to be enormous. Gigwise estimates that the demand will be greater than for recent gigs by Beyonce and Lady Gaga.
