Touchstone add 2 final shows

Touchstone have confirmed two final shows with vocalist Kim Seviour before she leaves the band.

She recently announced her decision to bow out as a result of a debilitating medical condition. Their last performance was expected to be at the HRH Prog festival last month, before the rest of the outfit went on hiatus.

But now they’ve listed two additional appearances – at London’s Boston Music Room on November 20 and Leamington Spa’s Assembly on November 21.

Touchstone say: “We’d originally thought we’d perform at HRH Prog then dive into the mothball pit, but we received a lot of messages asking for a proper ‘last’ gig.

“We’re intent on making them a couple of gigs to remember – we’re really looking forward to special party nights.”

Tickets are available via the band website. Guest acts will be announced in due course, along with details of limited-edition souvenir merchandise and exclusive aftershow party.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
