Bye Bye BLUES BAND    -     The Farewell Tour

Bye Bye Blues Band The Farewell Tour

Hi all you Blues Band fans. Yes I know Bye Bye Blues Band is the title of our fifth album, recorded at the end of 1982 when we split for a few years, but that’s partly why I use it now. Having been together, aside from the above mentioned hiatus, for 42 years, our first show was towards the end of April 1979, we are finally, with quite a few regrets, calling it a day. Like most of you, we are not getting any younger and there have been some health issues over the past few years within the band. In no way do we wish to denigrate the superb performances by the various, fabulous musicians who have deputised for us, but we want to go out with a bang and at the top of our game.Therefore, once Covid has finished wreaking havoc with the performing arts, we will be honouring as many of the shows, postponed from the past year and any which we cannot fit in we will replace with others chosen from our favourite venues. Any tickets bought over the Covid period will be honoured or refunded, as you wish.I’m sure the other guys may wish to post something themselves, but I write this as the ‘Farewell Tour’ is taking shape and will soon be going on sale, as just that – The Blues Band Farewell Tour.Thanks for all your support over the years – it’s been fabulous to play for you and to meet so many of you at the gigs.
