Chris Moyles Announces UK Tour
I have grown up listening to Chris Moyles. I have grown up through early mornings, afternoons and breakfast show with Moyles and the team. I have loved Chris Moyles Karaoke, Carpark Catchphrase and Rob DJs Monday night pub quiz. Maybe didn’t love things like King of Tickets so much, but those really bad things that made it to air are what made the Moyles shows so special. I have loved the way he has remained the centre of the show but also brought the other personalities through. This has meant we have come to love the likes of Dom and Aled as much as him (OK, maybe not quite as much as him). So Chris Moyles will be celebrating the end of an era by embarking on a UK tour this November.
The thing is if it was anybody else, you would think they were cashing in on success while they still can. There may be an element of that to this tour, but who can blame Moyles. However, underneath such a huge outward personality, there is a definite insecurity, almost a child or geek wanting to break out. Moyles loves what he does. For me, I know it has been painted as a mutual thing, but his departure from Radio 1 stinks. It is almost suicide in my opinion. The reason? To bring the average listener age down. Well forgive me if I am wrong but half the callers and texters on the show are under 25. Not bad.
Anyway, lets get on to the positives, Chris is due to launch his album on 5th November. The album promises to feature a host of famous names including Robbie Williams and Olly Murs, but ironically is released in the same week as Robbie and JLS. No offence to those two acts but we really hope Moyles gets number one. Now this exciting news, Chris Moyles wil be embarking on a tour in November as well.
‘Chris Moyles Live’ will be an 80-minute touring music and comedy show incorporating audience participation.
“This is my first chance to get out and see the fans since I left the radio show. It will be a night of singing and laughing and messing about. If you share my same sense of humour and love for bad karaoke, then this is the show for you.”
Accompanied by a live band Chris and his friends will perform songs, interspersed amongst the music there will of course be non-stop banter fun and games, and a lot more. Audience participation will of course be encouraged, creating the perfect party atmosphere with an interactive element.
Chris Moyles is the host of the longest running Radio 1 Breakfast show ever with an audience of 7 million listeners weekly, and over 2.5 million Twitter followers.
The tour isn’t just sitting back watching, laughing and singing, it’s a chance for the audience to participate too, making each night different from the next and surprises are around every corner.
