royale

Thank you Boston for 2 truly fantastic, home-town nights at the Royale!  Incredible to look out at a sea of such smiling faces (and some occasional tears….)!  It is impossible to adequately express how touching and how much fun these shows have been.  See you in DC at the 930 tonight!

NYC…. 1 down, 1 to go!  Thanks to everyone who came out and made this half-hometown gig truly great!  We had a blast and it looked like you all did too.  Back up there at Bowery Ballroom again tonight for round 2!

We regret that we’ve had to cancel the live-acoustic Radio BDC session planned for Aug 12th.  This time around Belly is very much a DIY operation, and we’ve realized that trying to shoehorn this appearance into an already very tight schedule is just too much to pull off.  But we very much look forward to playing and seeing everyone that night at Royale!

A tremendous THANK YOU to everyone in the UK and Ireland that made the first leg of our reunion tour such a huge success.  The incredible amount of love and enthusiasm quite literally brought tears to our eyes- it was all so, so far beyond expectations!  And the irrepressible expressions of how much Belly’s music has meant to so many, even after twenty-plus years away, has left us with buzzing heads and swelling hearts.  It was short, but very sweet, and has truly been a fantastic experience.

And an equally tremendous THANK YOU again to our great crew of Sergio Maschetzko, Petr Hlavacek and Chil Mott.  You guys worked with grace under pressure, keeping everyone safe, sounding great and having fun!

Next stop, Boston….!

Thank you Dublin for a glorious capping-off of our tour of ‘the Isles!’  We may have started last night a bit slowly, and with some technical quirks, but you all stayed with us and the full-house, full-throated participation on Full Moon, Empty Heart pushed us through to a second set that was full-steam!  You were amazing!  We did have another song for you, but alas we hit the venue’s hard curfew (something about a late-night ‘circus’ on Saturdays…?), so Dublin, we owe you one!  Thank you, thank you so much!
