We’re excited to announce that we are now playing three shows with the amazing Fleet Foxes at London’s Hammersmith Apollo next week !!
They have asked us to play on June 1st & 2nd (as well as the show we were already playing on May 31st)… we can’t wait !!
Unfortunately this has meant that we’ve had to reschedule our headline show at St James Church in Piccadilly. This special show was due to take place on June 1st. It will now happen on September 29th we’re really sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.
Of course all tickets which have already been purchased for the 1st June show will be honoured for the rescheduled September 29th date.
