The Missing Walker Brothers Tour Date
I often wondered, why there were 25
dates shown on the Walker Brothers Tour flier, but only 24 actually known performances. I
mentioned something to Linda Crafar about this one day, so she decided to do some research
on what happened to the missing concert date. Linda's reasearch paid off and this small
article may explain the discrepancy.
Walker Fans Protest
& Scott Blames Promotors
Hundreds of girl pop
fans have protested on learning that The Walker Brothers Tour will not be visiting
Hadleigh, Essex, as advertised. The Nationwide Tour, which includes Cat Stevens, Englebert
Humperdinck and The Jimi Hendrix Experience begin on March 31 and was due to give two
evening performances at Kingsway Theatre, Hadleigh.
However, as the promoter has
not put up the required deposit to the tour organisers, they have now switched the date to
the Gaumont Southampton. Scott Engel comments: "We are furious about this sort
of thing, its not fair on the public and its not fair on the artists.
Its usuaIly us who gets the blame from fans who dont realise that its
promoters and such people who cause the trouble."
