Aftershow Parties
If you would like to be involved with the organisation of aftershow parties for the above gigs or can suggest suitable small (cheap ...or free!) venues willing to host an event in any of the above towns, please do drop us a line ASAP.

Adam also addressed issues surrounding the much talked about new album, with release plans now shelved until 2012. So, apparently this tour will not be to promote new material.
