Thieves' Kitchen 2008 tour

Hi everyone!

We are pleased to announce our Autumn 2008 UK and European tour dates in support of the latest Thieves' Kitchen CD The Water Road which was released in March. These will be the first live shows for the band since July 2004 and the first to feature new keyboard player Thomas Johnson, formerly of Anglagard.

Sunday September 28th - Summer's End festival, Lydney Town Hall, High Street, Lydney, Gloucestershire, UK

TK will be on stage at around 1:40pm. Other bands playing on this day of the festival include The Tangent and Frost*. There are only a few tickets still available, so move quickly!

Wednesday October 22nd - riff's bar, 26 greatfield, swindon, wiltshire, SN4

Riff's has become a legendary venue for prog! No support and so a full set - TK will be onstage at around 9pm.

Friday October 24th - Chipping Warden Village Hall, Culworth Road, Chipping Warden, Northants, OX17 1LB, UK

The hall at Chipping Warden has been our rehearsal home over recent months, so what better place for a central UK show? This is a double header gig with Whimwise, featuring Nick May (ex The Enid). It will all kick off at about 7:30pm. Cheap admission and cheap bar!

Saturday November 1st - Freakparade festival, Bockshorn Theatre, Veitshoechheimerstrasse, 97080 Wuerzburg, Germany

Our first ever show in mainland Europe will be at the renowned Freakparade Festival - we are second on the bill on the Saturday and will appear at around 7pm, immediately prior to Magma.

Sunday November 2nd - Spirit of '66, Place du Martyr 16, B4800 Verviers, Belgium

We will be playing the famed Spirit of '66 as a double header along with our fellow Brits Sphere3. The fun is due to start at around 7pm.

Monday November 3rd - L'Olympia Bruno Coquatrix, Boulevard des Capucines 28, Paris, France

The sort of place you only ever really dream about playing - the Olympia is a massive, famous theatre which in its time has hosted artists like The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. TK will be supporting French Canadian Genesis tribute band The Musical Box and we will be onstage at around 8pm.

If you require any further information on any of the shows or any general information on the band, please do not hesitate to contact us either at our website (
www.thieveskitchen.co.uk) or at our email address, thieveskitchen@aol.com.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our shows, and we hope to arrange further gigs for 2009 including perhaps a return to North America.

Thanks for listening!

Andy, Amy, Thomas, Phil and Mark (Thieves' Kitchen)
