KIRSTY McGEE & THE HOBOPOP COLLECTIVE
special guest opener STEVEN FINN
Kirsty McGee recorded her new album No.5 live in one take in front of a sold out audience at her native Manchester’s Contact Theatre last October. It’s the first album to feature Kirsty with her full band The Hobopop Collective – the decision was made to record it live with no overdubs or repairs as the best way of capturing their sound.
Now Kirsty and the Collective return to the venue they recorded in for a celebration of the album's release (scheduled for March 15th 2010) performing songs from the album and more, with a selection of guests in tow.
Support for this show comes from the awesome Steven Finn, up from London specially for this show - http://bit.ly/4X97vS
This is your only chance to get a copy of the album a full two weeks before it is released. Book early, tickets will not last long for this show.
