Old Saint Paul’s
Monday, October 5 and Tuesday October 6
This year’s Church Tour offers a great line-up and all of the acts on the bill have new material to push – in particular I’ve loved the albums from Marlon Williams and the brand new ones from Delaney Davidson and Tami Neilson. But that’s as much as I can say about this show. The promoter, Eccles Entertainment, removed my name from the guest list, despite two of the artists offering to add me, despite an affiliated record label offering to add me. I was unceremoniously uninvited, and requests for a chance to see Tuesday’s show or an explanation for why I was not allowed to review the show on Monday night were ignored.
I bet it was a great show.
I know this will only come off as a reviewer moaning, I know you don’t care about how you get your news (and in this case reviews) you just read what’s in front of you, so that’s why you’re reading this instead of an actual review. I know you’ll say I should have bought my own ticket, but I’m not sure how people think the reviewing process works, nor why a reviewer doing a job should be forced to buy their own ticket.
I know: never complain/never explain – it’s just getting a bit tired and a bit beyond all that…
