“…Booth has the crowd in the palm of his hand. It's a tricky feat to pull off playing the newly released songs alongside such old favourites, but the Living in Extraordinary Times songs hold their own and the audience filter out filled with euphoria.”— Manchester Evening News

Asked if the band would ever do a ‘heritage album tour’, Tim responds, “No. I think it’s death. Rock dies when it becomes theatre, with no sense that London on a Wednesday is totally different to Paris on a Friday. Different days, different countries, different temperaments. We change every night. The present is the only thing that exists.” — Guardian music Observer New Review

All tickets remain valid, and please note the venue advises they'll be wristbanding from 6pm and tickets need to be scanned at The Irish Village Dubai entrance rather than going straight to the Tennis Stadium entrance. See you tonight!
