David Brent w. Foregone Conclusion Tour
Nothing satiated fans of The Office more than when Ricky Gervais reprised his role of David Brent earlier this year in a "Learn Guitar with David Brent" YouTube series. And when the actor/comedian/genius Tweeted out that he would perform a few "low key warm up gigs with Forgone Conclusion in London this October," well, fans were elated. Not surprisingly, tickets for said event - scheduled for October 14 & 23 at the Bloomsbury Theatre - sold out in under 60 seconds, spurring Gervais to announce plans for a full UK tour for later this year. While no dates have been released yet, a finale gig at the Wembley Arena is confirmed. Gervais has also just Tweeted out a one-off show in Colston Hall on December 16, in Bristol, UK.
Part one of Foregone Conclusion's London shows took place earlier this week, and included fan favorites like "Freelove Freeway," "Slough" and "Lady Came Down." (Check out the full setlist below.) As an aggregator of secondary tickets ourselves, we found Gervais' reaction to the inflated prices of his resold tickets interesting. Listings as high as £3549.95 were seen online, prompting Gervais to Tweet: "f*cking disgusting. Please no one buy them." Hopefully, with a more expansive tour schedule on the way, tickets will be more readily available for fans looking to see their favorite chilled out entertainer live.
