Hello hello hello!

Hello hello hello!

Dashing this off in the middle of rehearsals for – can you believe it? – the Fascinating Aïda Autumn Tour!  Yes, it’s really happening. We’re testing negative and feeling positive! Two brand new songs, a LOT of rewriting, a fully updated show, new hairstyles…and of course, the wonderful Michael Roulston and his ten dazzling fingers on piano – oh the excitement!

Sadly, for obvious reasons of germ-swap risks, we won’t be able to come out front after the show to meet and greet you in the foyer as in days of yore, or “In the Before Times” as I like to intone in a doomy West Country accent.

On second thoughts… Am I allowed to put on an accent from a region where I didn’t grow up these days? One never do know in these Woke times.  I did go to Dorset  on holiday for nearly 20 years in a row – does that count? It’s all so complicated and OF COURSE we have a song about it, ha ha!

So come along and hear us turn the air blue with our customary scabrous irreverence. And in spite of the sad, strange and unsettling era in which we find ourselves, it’s a very cheering show.

Stay well, stay safe and be good. We hope to follow at least two of these strictures.

    So frustrated that you’ve changed your Glasgow date to a Wednesday. Now can’t go as I’m working and live in Inverness. Feel like chucking in my job so that I can go!

    How it lifts one’s spirits to hear from FA – and how delightful it is to pick up new words (such as “scabrous”): thank you, Dillie!
    Good luck with the Autumn Tour. We’re not able to see you this year, but doing so is on our wish list for 2022.
    From your big fans in downtown Bunny.

    I’m hoping to get tickets to your next show up here. Always hilarious and I love the irreverence you do so well. I’ve seen you on stage and met you in the foyer afterwards so a bit sad not to do that this time. Thank you COVID. I hope you have all weathered the storm well. I’m pleased to say I have. Take care and let’s keep laughing together. Cheers

    I’m a great fan of yours and hope to see you in Oxford later on if we’re no going to be in some kind of a lockdown. Would you be able to answer me this.
    Do I have to be vaccinated to be able to enjoy an evening with you?

    I would love to come to one of your shows but alas alack, during covid I was diagnosed with Parkinsons and now can hardly walk.

    Back in the good old days I and my pals attended several of your shows in Hammersmith. We had such fun and enjoyed them so much.
    Fascinating Aïda should be available on the NHS as an anti-depressant (even though it it raises fears of addiction).

    When your tour is over, is there anyway we can watch on-line (and pay of course)?

    Crikey Adéle…. I’m exhausted just looking at the amount of tour dates you lovely ones are doing.

    I hope the show is the blinding success it deserves to be, you all work so hard. Look forward to seeing you in Highgate between Yeovil and Leeds…

    Dear Dillie, Adele and Liza,
    my partner Jane, dear friend Tia and myself saw you last night 18th Sept at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
    Well, I haven’t laughed so much in Years ! It was wonderful and just the tonic we needed thank you but I must say, you far exceeded the joy we had expected.
    Many congratulations and we are already looking forward to seeing you when you return and spreading the word. Oh by the way, your new addition was very welcome and a true genius on the piano ! Amazing.
    Thank you again all 4 of you,
    Keith Phillips from Wallasey on the Wirral xx

    My wife and our (grown-up and married!) girls came to your concert in Yeovil last night (18/10/2021) and after pondering what to write I settled for just one word… Unmissable!

    Thanks for a fab evening!

    love and peace John Lynne, Joanne and Sarah.
