Friends are forged on the dark road headed out of town, and so we head there again, beginning on June 4, 2019 in Portsmouth, UK.
A quick note from the factory floor here.
There are a lot of things that slay me about touring with Nights of Grief & Mystery, but few more so than what can land on the table when wrestling with language to properly describe the thing. We seem to be learning about “what this is” as we go along. In the beginning, we were happy to admit that we didn’t know and were more likely to be able to tell you a whole lot of “what it isn’t”. The more we travelled with The Nights, though, the more we understood that simply saying “what it isn’t” was, in fact, a cop-out. Follow?
So here’s our latest understanding:
We have an idea where the monsters are. That’s where we’re headed.
You can read the full new blurb at the new nightsofgriefandmystery.com landing page.
The tour will Take us to 28 cities in the UK and North America for 32…shows?Performances? Nights, is what I prefer to call them.
Or 32 chances to get it right. We know what “it” is.
That dark road thing?
That image is more than an image. That is what we do. That is our devotional act. And those monsters? Probably not what you expecting. That’s another thing that slays me about the Nights: mostly they are everything you wouldn’t expect.
See you out there.
Coming off a 25-city tour with Nights of Grief & Mystery, Gregory– along with Lisa Hodgson (keys and vox) and Adam Hay (drums and vox)– takes over the intimate space of The Factory Theatre for his first solo concert appearance in Toronto since 2014, delivering songs from 2017’s Vain + Alone as well as King of Good Intentions, Surgery, and The Beggar Heart.
Due to demand, a new block of tickets has been released in L.A.
I’m excited we get to do this here. It will be the end of the tour and, as one has to contemplate, we may never get to do this again. Get your tickets early to make sure you get a seat…I’m fairly certain both these nights will sell out.
Tickets for a NYC Night of Grief & Mystery have finally gone on sale. On November 2nd, Stephen, Adam, Lisa and I will be at The New York Society for Ethical Culture. The 100+ year old building sits on the edge of Central Park and the stage in the main hall has played host to a diverse collection of performers and performances. It is NOT small.
Tickets can be had here:
A good feel for a Night of Grief & Mystery. All the audio you hear was taken from concerts in Australia and the UK. We are happy to be joined on this tour by Adam Hay (drums, vox) and Lisa Hodgson (keys, vox) and feel good about being able to tour this closer to home. Strange days, indeed.
