New York Staff Band Tour


Staff member
Following interest shown on another forum, I thought I would post the details of the forthcoming tour by the New York Staff Band of the Salvation Army:

United Kingdom Tour

Tue 27 May Boscombe
Wed 28 May Exeter Temple
Thu 29 May Birmingham Citadel
Fri 30 May Rock Ferry
Sat/Sun 31 May/1 June Sunderland Monkwearmouth
Mon 2 June Greenock
Tue 3 June Sheffield Citadel
Wed 4 June Sheringham
Thu 5 June Hadleigh Temple
Fri 6 June Margate
Sat 7 June Royal Albert Hall
Sun 8 June Reading Central

As these dates have been around for a while you may find ticket availability is limited (our concert at Hadleigh is virtually sold out).

The Albert Hall date involves the band's participation in the annual Gospel Arts Concert rather than a full programme by the band. They will probably be contributing a couple of solo items, but their solo euphonium , Aaron Vanderweele, is being featured as soloist.

If I can track down any contact numbers for tickets I shall post them later on.
