Thanks for clarification - Brighton Dome ticket office don't seem to know - and I suggested to them they should confirm with the promoter - I suggested it should be made clear on their web site if it is a solo show or a band show - as it will affect people's decision whether to buy a ticket


Will it? I mean KT is a solo artist.

KT solo can be pretty thumpin'. I've heard her on occasion be louder by herself than with a band :lol:.

I can understand if there is no band for the mini-tour before the festivals, as the venues are a bit smaller....but speaking from the York Barbican's point of view - I would have thought that might be a bit cavernous (the stage is very wide) just to play solo....but I await to be stunned (an no doubt prooven wrong).

Haha :lol:

I personally don't think knowing if it's solo or with band will influence a lot people's decision to go to the gig or not
You decide to see an artist live and therefore accept the way they decide to present their tunes to you.

That being said, it's true that a huge venue doesn't necessarily fit with a solo performance
I'm not familiair with the venues listed in the UK/Ireland tour: are they small or big?

I hope she will pick a cosy venue for Paris :mrg:

I think it's smart that she's chosen more theatres for this tour, as most of the new tunes are more "listeners". It's annoying not to be able to get up and boogie sometimes (at the Minack we were all sat so close together you couldn't even seat-dance) but on the whole i think most of these venues will suit the occasion. :)

Meant to reply to this the other day Aurelia. As Claire said, they're mostly (if not all) theatres.

They are big stages but the nature of the venue is that everyone will be seated and pay attention to the music. I'm really hoping it'll be like your standard show, no leaving to go to the bar etc because that really p*sses me off at gigs!

I think with the way the album is shaping up it's ideal. And a good performer can still make a big venue (they're mostly around the 3,000 mark) seem intimate.

I'm really hoping everyone will be respectful too. Let's hope not too many teenagers out for an alcohol-fueled night will turn up to find they're sat down. :lol:

That's unusual, it's considerably bigger than the Barrowlands which is 2,000.

I'm not convinced by them saying its all seated in there. I've been in that venue maybe 40 times and not seen any evidence of them ever putting seats on the ground level.

Cool 8)

La Cigale is 1 000 seats and I think it'd be a good venue in Paris!

Claire, I can't believe you googled the capacities of all the venues, haha!! Thanks!

Just noticed there's now an option on ticketmaster for 'official platinum tickets'. The scottish November concerts seem to be sold out but for the bargain price of £140 you can bag yourself a second row seat. We got second row at Perth for £30 last week.

They're claiming "The goal is to give the most passionate fans fair and safe access to the best tickets".

Do you think this is an actual Tunstall thing or a ticketmaster thing? This is absolute bull.

That's absolutely mental!! Has to be a Ticketmaster thing, can't imagine Tunstall would ever go in for that.

Upon closer inspection, its for all dates. For 'the best seats' in London it's £100 more than we paid, and two rows behind :roll:.

It's not even that its ticket touts selling them, its the official ticketing agency selling their own allocation at that price. I hope if they sell any its KT that sees all the profit.
