Bill Bailey's Dandelion Mind 2011 UK tour - new dates on sale Friday 17th June
In 2008, comedian Bill Bailey began a 60-date residency at London's Gielgud Theatre that sold out every single night. A year or so later, he returned to the capital for 50-or-so shows at Wyndham's Theatre. That run also sold out. The man is phenomenally popular - Peter Kay and Take That popular. He also hasn't done any gigs outside London for more than a year.
Following the 2010 residency, the comedy troll with a penchant for techno-folk music is taking his 'Dandelion Mind' show on tour. The show features Bill's trademark musical interludes, observations and stories of the road; from his real-life saga of being trapped by the ash cloud, to his barely contained rants about creationism and Michael Winner.
The music will involve some new instruments, an internet love song, a brand-new French Disco re-working of Gary Numan's 'Cars' and there's potential for some Wurzels-based remixes of classic German techno. And there's not many shows you can say that about.
Bill Bailey has already announced dates at some sizeable arenas and theatres beginning at Birmingham's vast LG Arena on 1st November. All the biggies are in there, two shows at the Newcastle Metro Arena, gigs at Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena, the Liverpool Echo Arena, the huge MEN Arena in Manchester, the Glasgow SECC.
Tickets are still available for many of these dates and the good news is that Bill has added another handful of shows to the tour.
He'll now be stopping off in Plymouth, York, Blackpool and Ipswich too. Tickets for the additional gigs go on sale at 9AM on Friday 17th June, prices starting at £29.50 for most dates.
Extra dates added - on sale Friday 23rd September!
Since we last told you about the hairy mirthmaker's Dandelion Mind tour, Bailey has added four more shows to the schedule in response to 'public demand' (probably). The show, which will be sub-titled; 'Gently Modified'
(a few new gags, character re-tweaking and digitally remastered), will now also call at Oxford on 5th November, Scunthorpe on the 11th, Dunfermline on the 19th and York (AGAIN) on the 20th. All four shows go on sale from tomorrow morning (23rd), priced at £29.50/£30.50. Of the remaining previously-announced shows, Newcastle (3rd Nov) and Plymouth (6th) have sold out - the rest are priced from £29.50.
