Another Unsurprising Announcement - 03/12/2021

Saturday 17th December 2022

In addition, of Justin's two solo shows in Düsseldorf in January next year, the festival has now been cancelled and the club show has been rescheduled. Details to follow.

Mick Thornton

Mick Thornton

With great sadness, we are passing on the news that Mick Thornton, our lighting designer for many, many years, has died.

Mick joined us in 1983. A few hours before we set off on our first 'proper tour', we managed to borrow 8 par cans and our one roadie-come-tour manager, Tommy Tee, went round to a friend's house to ask if he would operate them for us. By coincidence he wasn't in. Instead Mick answered the door in his underpants and, from what we understand, the conversation went approximately:
Is .... at home?
No.
Oh. Have you ever operated lights?
No.
Do you want to learn?
Yes.
Pack your bag, we're leaving in an hour.
And so began a wonderful career which saw Mick develop quickly into a creative and sought-after lighting designer, going on to work with The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy, Black Sabbath, Andrea Bocelli, Thin Lizzy, Opus, Paradise Lost, The Almighty and countless other bands as well as 20 years with NMA.
He was known for his big smile and big heart and his love of music and lights and the touring life and he will be missed by many people in the industry.

Rest in peace Mick, and thank you for everything you gave us, x

Amsterdam & Köln Update

Amsterdam & Köln Update

Thank you to everyone who came to Glasgow and to the epic weekend in Nottingham for creating such a good atmosphere. Let's do it all again at the Roundhouse in London this coming weekend!

Unfortunately, new Covid restrictions mean that the Amsterdam Melkweg shows are once again postponed. We are trying to rearrange these gigs for 2022 with tickets carrying over and we will have more information soon. Regarding Köln, we are told by our promoters that nothing has changed at the moment (capacity reduced to 3000, test or vaccine pass to enter, no compulsory face masks). However we are aware that further restrictions may come into place, in which case we will postpone these gigs once again. We will make a decision later this week.

Stay well everyone.
