This is a tour worth catching. Dave will be performing the New World album and will most likely have a few special guests drop by. I've booked the Manchester show so it would be nice if I won ;-)

I SO want to go to the Leicester gig. I attempted to see Sound of Contact support Spocks Beard in 2013 but due to traffic we arrived just as SoC were coming offstage. And I really need to see District 97.
This time around it depends how Easter Sunday dinner with the family pans out and if I can 'be excused from the table' lol

Bit of a late reply to my own reply, but I can confirm the gig at the Musician in Leicester was blooming marvellous. I got there halfway through Oktopus' set but were impressed once they had fully got into their 8 tentacled stride.
Dave Kersner was really good and had the lions share of the audience, but suffered from a few PA issues. Not the least was Durga McBroom singing Floyd's Great Gig in the Sky with, shall we say, inappropriate levels of reverb on her vocals. Painfully loud and destroyed eardrums ensued.
District 97 were, I though,t flippin' amazing, and they seemed to have a lot of fun playing some really intricate riff-based prog. Shame half the audience had left by that time, but to my ears (although bleeding by that time) they missed a treat.
