The excitement generated by Noel Fielding and Rich Fulcher‘s visit to Australia has got fans in the US asking when they can have a turn. Indeed, an online campaign has kicked off with the aim of letting Noel’s management know that it’s time he headed Stateside.
We contacted his management to find out if a trip to the US is on the cards in the near future and, sadly, it looks like we may have to wait a while. Here’s what they told us: “There are no plans for an American tour at the moment – he’s right back into work on the second series of Luxury Comedy when he’s back from Australia.” They reckon it’s probably going to keep him busy until Autumn 2013.
While that means lots of new Luxury Comedy goodies for everyone, unfortunately it doesn’t bode well for overseas tours between now and then. But while there might be a long wait ahead, the campaign that fans are organising can’t do any harm in making sure the US is top of mind as a destination if and when the much-talked-about Luxury Comedy live shows are being planned. Here’s hoping!
In other Noel live news, some of you may be aware that he was forced to cancel his first (Tuesday) Melbourne show at the last-minute due to illness. Ticket holders weren’t informed until after the scheduled start of the show which, understandably, has caused some consternation amongst fans. All Tuesday tickets will be valid for the rescheduled show on Thursday evening (or given full refunds if preferred). We hope everyone who has been affected by the cancellation has been able to re-organise themselves around the date change; we know how long you guys have been waiting for this!
Finally, please don’t forget to send us your pictures, reviews and comments from Noel and Rich’s trip to Australia. We’ll be compiling a review article over the weekend, and it’d be great to have as many of you included. For more information click here. Thanks!
