The first confirmed gig date for 2009 is for 22 May at Shrewsbury’s new Theatre Severn. This will be a rare fully-seated performance at this relatively small (600+ capacity) venue, which is due to open in March next year. The set up would seem to confirm rumours that the 2009 ‘spring tour’ may consist of just five or so seated performances at smaller venues around April/May.

Tickets are £16 and are available direct from the Theatre at You can even choose your exact seats using their nifty interactive seating plan.
