TIM BURGESS Reschedules London show
Eat Your Own Ears and Tim Burgess have decided to reschedule Tim’s solo London show from October 21st to December 16th.
The decision was taken after it was announced yesterday that The Charlatans will be hosting a one-off night at The Royal Albert Hall on October 18th in memory of drummer Jon Brookes who died last month.
Original tickets are valid for the new date. Refunds are available from your ticket agent.
It’s fair to say that over the past two years, Tim Burgess has been a very, very busy man. In that time, the Charlatans singer has completed Telling Stories, an autobiography for Penguin Books.

These have included singer songwriter Joseph Coward, the cult musician R Stevie Moore, an experimental noise piece from Factory Floor’s Nik Void, contemporary post punk via Electricity In Our Homes, and a spoken word release from poet Jack Underwood. That’s not to mention his presence on Twitter, where his Tim Peak’s Diner has become a virtual meeting place for music obsessives the world over. This, alongside his regular eclectic DJ sets, led Burgess to the attention of BBC 6 Music, who commissioned him to produce shows on Christmas and New Years Eve. And then, of course, there’s his new solo album Oh No I Love You, which arguably features some of Burgess’ finest music to date.
