Bill Bailey records new DVD at the O2
He's doing his musical stand-up comedy thing in September.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 08 Jul 2010
Bill Bailey has chosen the Dublin O2 as the venue for the recording of his Dandelion Mind DVD. You can catch him there on September 30, with tickets priced €38 going on sale on Friday July 16.
“Featuring Bill's trademark musical interludes, observations and stories of the road, Dandelion Mind will be based loosely on the theme of doubt (or will it?), as we follow Bill from his real-life saga of being trapped by the ash cloud, to his barely contained rants about celebrity, TV, creationism and Michael Winner. He demonstrates new instruments, both ancient and modern, he sings an internet love song, a lament about punk heroes, Iranian hip-hop, and plays a mean folk-bouzouki. Thomas the Doubter gets a new look, and Darwin’s curious obsessions and the myth of intelligent design are all worked over in Bailey’s own surreal style. He revisits the music of his youth, with a brand-new French disco re-working of Gary Numan’s hit, 'Cars', played in his own inimitable way, and maybe some Wurzel-based remixes of classic German techno. Just your normal Bill Bailey gig, then.”
