Bits of Strange Homecomings Tour


King Creosote & FOUND present “The Bits of Strange Homecomings Tour”
Tickets will go on sale from this website from Monday 17 September!

This unique tour will see Mercury Music Award nominated King Creosote and BAFTA Award winning FOUND come together to perform King Creosote’s “My Nth Bit of Strange in Umpteen Years” live album.

The live album was launched in 2009 as a reaction to downward spiralling sales and the ever decreasing value of a recorded album, whilst attempting to make the live show an absolute “must see”. The album has already been performed over a dozen times with various members of the KC band, the fence collective & guests, and most recently with Lancastrian super group The Earlies in 2011.

For these, the 15th-18th Bits of Strange, audience members are asked to arrive with a portable recording device to record this unique version of a continually evolving live album, and to share it with whoever they like. As KC explains:

“Recording these shows on portable battery powered equipment is optional, but highly recommended. We doubt there’ll be a studio version anytime soon, and you never know, over the tour we might pull four very different versions out of the bag.”

The 4-date tour will bring the ensemble to each member’s hometown:

Tuesday 27 November:
Aberdeen, The Blue Lamp (Capacity 100)

Wednesday 28 November:
St. Andrews, The Barron Theatre (Capacity 66)

Thursday 29 November
Edinburgh, The Scottish Story Telling Centre (Capacity 99)

Friday 30 November
Hawick, Heart of Hawick (Capacity 108)

Saturday 1 December
Homecoming End of Tour Party, venue TBA

Tickets are priced at £25 each and for that buyers will receive all exclusive tour merchandise:

  • A limited edition whisky glass etched with a different logo for each location designed by KC & FOUND to represent their home towns
  • A “Bits of Strange Homecoming Tour” tea towel
  • A pot luck King Creosote album from his back catalogue
  • Free entry to the Homecoming End of Tour Party with special guest djs

Tickets will go on sale from this website from Monday 17 September!

Each show will commence with a tasting of a limited edition single cask whisky being produced by Dewar’s specifically for the Homecoming tour. There will also be a different support set for each venue from the various members of the King Creosote band and FOUND.
