I have a lot to tell you...
So, here is it, my first ever blog. (except for one or two on myspace which lets face it, don’t count…)
Next week I leave on my first ever European tour and also my longest tour to date. 8 countries and over 30 gigs is somewhat overwhelming for someone who has only ever toured the UK a week at a time. ‘How did someone like Mark manage to book a tour like that?!’ I hear you ask. Well…I didn’t. I will be supporting the marvelous PJ Bond (http://theblacknumbers.com/artist_pjBond.html) on the entire trip after he was kind enough to invite me out with him.
The dates are as follows:
6th - Aberdeen (UK), Cellar 35
9th - Leeds (UK), Santiago’s
10th - Nottingham (UK), tba
11th - Kingston (UK), House Show*
12th - Brighton (UK), tba
13th - Paris (FR), Chiquitos
14th - Zele (BE), JC Juvenes
15th - Antwerp (BE), House Show*
16th - Utrecht (NL), ACU
17th - Haarlem (NL), Patronaat
18th - Castricum (NL), De Bakkerij
19th - Hillentrup (GE), Papiermuhle
20th - Dietmold (GE), Alte Pauline
21st - Regensburg (GE), Zimmer 4
24th - Vienna (AU), tba
25th - Graz (AU), Sub
26th - Wiener Neustadt (AU), Triebwork
27th - Oberwart (AU), Oho

So there you have it. It would be lovely to see you out and about.
I am pleased to announce that I will also be selling my first official t-shirts on tour as well as a small amount of beanies and scarfs! I’m so professional these days.
So finally, if I could ask you a favour? As well as (hopefully) coming to the shows if you could tell your friends about this epic adventure of mine? Maybe you have a cousin in Dietmold or a penpal in Rome that might enjoy a night of acoustic music? It would be really amazing to see friendly faces in each city.
