“My Grandad used to say, when things were chaotic
with twenty million grandkids in the house,
‘it’s like a three ring circus in here’”
So – just a week’s notice for this gig. Maybe not even that! What really happened is we thought the 3 Ring Circus might not be an option this year as Richard Hawley is mixing his new album but at the last minute it seems someone decided it was a good idea!
This Friday (28th September) the very fantastic 3 Ring Circus is back in Sheffield as part of Sensoria festival with a great line up:
GRAHAM FELLOWS (John Shuttleworth/Jilted John – playing songs from all 3 of his different identities)
CHRIS DIFFORD (Squeeze)
It’s the usual situation where all 3 artists will play 3 great venues in 1 night but the audience doesn’t know the order. Simply choose your venue and you’ll see all 3 artists and get identical shows in an order decided by a coin toss on the day. It doesn’t matter which venue you buy tickets for, all 3 artists speed from stage to stage in one memorable night where the audience stays still and the artists come to you!
Tickets are selling fast- Upper Chapel is nearly sold out.
We’re very excited about it and could even be there to report back ourselves. It’s Richard’s favourite show to play and it’s in Sheffield!
Richard Hawley and his manager Graham Wrench spoke to us ahead of last years event – read their comments here, while we recently reviewed Richard’s Live at the Devil’s Arse album here.
