Daniel Kitson announces new tour

'After The Beginning, Before The End'

Daniel Kitson has announced a new tour for this spring.

The show, entitled After The Beginning, Before The End, kicks off in Liverpool on May 8 and run through until the end of June.

Further dates in London and New York are set to be announced later – but Kitson says he will probably not be performing at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

Kitson, who shuns the industry of agents and publicists, announced his tour to members of his mailing list.

In the blurb, he explains: ‘I’ve been waiting to have the idea for this show for weeks, for months’ – when it suddenly struck him on a drive across London.

He wrote: ‘Somewhere between East London and South London - It arrived. The Idea. Just like that. Like a child, late home from school, oblivious to the worry and the panic and the phone calls. It just walked in and sat down like it wasn’t even a big deal...

‘Two hours ago I didn’t have the idea. Now I do. And it’s going to be good.’

Most tickets for After The Beginning, Before The End cost £10; and most go on sale at 10am on Monday. Click here for the schedule.
