Hello Socks fans. It's been a while since anyone's blogged here, all because we're so busy with this tour. The length and breadth of the country we've covered in recent weeks. Milton Keynes marvellous Madcap Arts was the last show, including a guy called Micha who'd travelled all the way from Germany (ok not solely to see us, but we were part of his planned itinerary from when he set off, and that's pretty brilliant).
Every gig's been good, with the best audience numbers of any tour and the best reception yet. Our smallest crowds have been as big as some of our biggest on the 2008 tour, and performing as a double bill with Ali Cook has given the audiences some very good value for money nights (check out this review of our Burnley show). And our forthcoming Leicester Square Theatre show in London on April 5th is already sold out, which is cracking.
If you can make it, do, or tell your nearby friends not to miss us. Here's a clip giving a taste of what you get.
And here are those remaining dates. Love to see you there.
