Peterborough band kick off Last Dance tour at Charters
After 21 years of rocking Peterborough’s pubs and clubs, Children of the Revolution will be going on an undetermined hiatus from January as lead singer Rob Bull is going travelling with wife Hannah.
But before then, the band has announced a ‘Last Dance’ tour starting on Saturday at Charters and culminating in a huge night at the Brewery Tap on December 17.
“Rob said on facebook this week: “I want to thank you all for the unbelievable and unrivalled support that you have shown the band over the years.
‘All I ever wanted was to create a bit of a following and be like the bands I used to go and watch around town as a teenager. I still can’t believe what the band has become or the level of support and respect we get from both supporters, our fellow musicians and venues alike.
“I couldn’t have done any of it without the extraordinary talent and hard work of those I’ve had beside me on the stage over all these years. It will be hard to step away from a band where I get to play rock n’ roll with my brothers every weekend, but the time feels right following the pandemic for us all to explore new opportunities.
“But, the year isn’t quite done with yet, so there are still a few opportunities to catch some Rev gigs. So here it is, aptly named ‘The Last Dance Tour’, culminating in one epic final night at The Brewery Tap on Friday 17th Dec.”
The tour will also see the boys play the Blue Bell, Werrington on November 12; Burghley Club on November 19; Coyotes Bar on November 27; Charters (acoustic duo set) on November 28; The Ostrich on December 4; The Ploughman on December 10; and London Inn, Stamford on December 11.
