I’m delighted to announce that I’ve been invited by Die Toten Hosen to support them on some selected dates on their Summer “Ohne Strom” tour. Currently all dates except Zurich and Dresden are sold out, but it would be great to see some TUTS down the front if you are able to get tickets for either of those! I’ll be at the following gigs: 13.06 STUTTGART Schleyer-Halle, 17.06 DORTMUND Westfallenhalle 1, 20.06 DÜSSELDORF ISS Dome, 27.06 FRANKFURT Festhalle, 30.06 MÜNCHEN Olympiahalle, 10.07 ZÜRICH Hallenstadion, 16.07 DRESDEN Filmnächte am Elbufer. I’ll be slotting in a few club gigs in and around those dates - news on that soon.
