Fantastic news after such a long drought.
Looks like Chris is playing in the evening of 31 October. Tickets go on sale 9am on 19 July. Wish I could be there but being on the other side of the world makes it pretty impossible - unless I win Lotto .

I suggest taking a look at Google for this company and read the comments and blogs before parting wit...
I was astounded to find on our local auction site a book about Chris Rea for sale, cost NZ$70. The book is published by an outfit called Alphascript Publishing and they are selling the book about Chris on the internet and through other book outlets? It is not a cheap book and I would think true fans...

Thanks for that. For those that cannot make the concerts is really great to hear reports from those who have. Did Chris play Josephine on the Banjo? I have figured out that his setlist will always include Josephine, Julia, Stainsby Girls, Stony Road and Easy Rider for their personal reference to tho...

This is what Chris said in an interview with Simon Hayes on Wharf.co.uk on 22 August 2011 "Once I finish something I don't want to look at it. It's done, gone. I did my biography, which was fun, but as soon as I finished it, I went on to something else. Now they are saying I should bring it out, but...

I've read that Rhino is giving away tickets to a viewing in London on 5 September. If they choose me (if only) I'd be lucky to get there in time from NZ!! How do they choose who gets to go anyway?
I received my copy of Santo Spirito today in the mail in New Zealand. Actually it arrived here yesterday but I had to go to the Post Office to pick up the parcel. Haven't had chance yet to look and listen to it all but am playing the CD of the Bull Fight and it is fantastic. Very moody and portrays ...
