BILL BAILEY IN THOUGHTIFIER
A BRAND-NEW LIVE SHOW FOR 2024
Doors Open at 6:30pm. Show starts at 8pm!
“One zinging musical-comedy set piece after another★★★★.”
Bill Bailey is delighted to get back on the road with the announcement of an ARENA TOUR for February 2024. With his trademark musical stylings and characteristic wit, Bill returns to the live stage in...
1. an intriguing device that can amplify the thoughts of a curious mind using music, channelled through a human instrument, known as Bill Bailey
2. (colloquial) a person resembling Bill Bailey
At a point in our evolution when it seems as if we’re sleepwalking into a world where humans might be redundant, and much of what we do can be done better and more efficiently by machines, what better time to celebrate our own flawed humanity. And who better a guide to lead us than Bill… To take us on a jaunt through the error-strewn, distracted, crumb-festooned, sometimes magnificent history of human thought and how it might help us survive in this brave new world. A magical, musical mystery tour of the human mind, along with some other pressing matters about whales, biophilia, unrequited love and other thoughts. Amplified With Music. Welcome to Thoughtifier!
“His genius is to bring arena-sized crowds along… by the force of his quirky enthusiasm and by neither pandering nor ever pretending to be anyone other than his idiosyncratic, off-the-beaten-path self.”
Following the forced touring hiatus brought about by the pandemic, Bill was delighted to return to the live stage at the end of 2021 with a brand-new live show En Route To Normal. Described by The Evening Standard as “a sublime celebration of silliness ★★★★”, the tour was sadly curtailed by the second Covid lockdown in January 2022, before Bill was finally able to conclude the tour later that spring.
Under 14's must be accompanied by an adult.
