Visit the Greedy Ba$tard Tour page for tour dates and other info

The Greedy Ba$tard tour starts 3 October 2003

With only a few weeks to go until the start of Eric Idle's Greedy Ba$stard Tour, fans can check for tour dates and other information on the official Greedy Bastard page.

The tour will begin, appropriately enough, in Rutland, Vermont on October 3rd. The group will then visit nearly 40 U.S. cities, about twice as many destinations as 2000's Eric Idle Exploits Monty Python stage tour. Check the tour page for destinations near you. A number of additional dates are being negotiated, including some southern U.S. destinations in early 2004.

Joining Eric on the tour will be long-time collaborator and composer John Du Prez, as well as Peter Crabbe and Jennifer Julian (friends of Eric's who had also been part of the Exploits tour).

Described as an evening of sketches and songs, the show will feature new material from Eric's latest Rutland Isles CD as well as old Python favorites. There will of course be lots of very rude sing-along opportunities, promises Eric.
