TYKETTO REUNITE FOR LIVE SHOWS:
August 28, 2007
Tyketto, with all 4 original members will be playing 4 shows in the month of October.
We were extremely flattered to be asked to be a part of the exceptional line up at this year’s Firefest. We all had a great time when we reunited in 2004 and the reaction of the fans was fantastic. But, as we forged ahead and put together a few more shows around the Firefest date we realized something: this is going to be the last time that Tyketto will perform together. First, there is the simple fact that each of us has very different lives and family situations. Recording and touring just isn’t ever going to be a possibility again. Also, we all agreed that too many bands these days are “reunited” with only 1 or 2 original members, or doing a “farewell” tour every year!
We have always had too great a respect for the fans that kept us going for so long to try and sell them on something cheap and watered down. So you’re never going to see something like “Danny Vaughn’s Tyketto” or Jimi Kennedy’s Tyketto”. If it ain’t the 4 of us it ain’t gonna happen.
So here are the shows:
OCT. 26 MADRID, SPAIN (Venue to be announced)
OCT. 27 FIREFEST, NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND
OCT. 28 BIEBOB, VOSSELAAR, BELGIUM
OCT. 30 THE ROSETTA, BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND
And that’s it!!!!!
The 4 of us have always agreed that we would never do this unless it was going to be fun. And this is going to be a blast!
The last time we played Madrid we were all amazed by the singing and the happiness of the fans. So to add to the mix we will also have famed Spanish guitarist Jorge Salan opening up for us.
Firefest will be the perfect way for us to say good bye and thank you to our most amazingly loyal UK fans.
We have always had a great time as well at Biebob and the reputation of the fans in The Rosetta has all of us anxious to rock out there for our very final show.
We are still working out the set lists for the shows but, since Firefest was the gig that started this ball rolling we thought we would make it special and let the fans have their say. So you are going to decide what Tyketto songs we play that night! All you have to do is to send an email to the Danny Vaughn web site, www.dannyvaughn.com,and pick the top 3 songs that you want the band to play and we’ll tally up the votes and make the set up from that. On top of that we’ll even make it a little easier for you. Don’t bother voting for Forever Young because you know we’re gonna play that one!
So here we are , asking you, like we always have before, to come out and show some strength together. Let’s rock it as hard as we can….one last time.
Looking forward to seeing all of you,
Danny, Brooke, Michael, and Jimi
