I have officially booked 7 out of 26 shows of the ABC Tour. To be honest, there was a part of me that thought that it really wouldn't get this far. But there’s no going back now!
I am now very pleased to announce that show 6 is now well and truly confirmed. F is for Forest!
This one is going to be really exciting for a few reasons; it is going to be there first show that is going to be lit by fire, and it is in a stunning location. There are no toilets, so be prepared.
I have started asking on social media for suggestions for each letter, even though for some of the letters I have a pretty good idea of where I am going to perform already. This has been really entertaining for me! The places that some of you guys are suggesting have been amazing, insane or inappropriate. I thought I would use this blog to go through some of them. Below are some suggestions for G with my reasons against them:
This was my initial idea. But then when I thought about it, it is essentially just a field. I didn’t think it would be visually interesting.
Another great suggestion. I don't know why, but it just didn't sit well with me.
A little boring I think
This was my second choice. And to be honest, if my first choice fell through, I had a couple of these lined up.
I really like this idea, but it is too similar to the Eden Project for E. The Eden Project is the green house of all green houses.
In the end, I decided to go for this stunning gallery in Bristol called Hours Space. Check out their website http://www.hours-space.com. This will be the first show where we will be accepting donations for a charity. The charity is Borderlands who support refugees and asylum seekers.
That is all for now. More tour details coming soon.
