FRANKIE CLAUS?

FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD are so impressed with the reaction to their American concerts, that they’ve decided to play some UK dates before Christmas; which may be difficult because most of the prestige venues are fully booked throughout December.

Apparently they’ve already pencilled in two hometown shows at Liverpool Royal Court Theatre on 15 and 16 December, with a possibility of a third the following night. At press time, a spokesman said they were looking for other suitable venues, and would ideally like to play half-a-dozen gigs around that period.

An official announcement is expected within the next few days, but it seems unlikely that London will figure in their plans at this stage, because of the welter of seasonal bookings in the capital. In any case, these December dates would be just a taster for their full UK tour in the New Year, probably March/April.

Please note that the Liverpool shows are still subject to confirmation, and tickets are not yet available.
