LONDON – CHELSEA – UNDER THE BRIDGE – BEN WATERS FOR ONE LAST TIME! SOLD OUT!!!! SOLD OUT!!!! SOLD OUT!!!!!!

Yes this is the last one!

I guess most of you already know as I had mentioned it on Facebook, but I have decided to stop touring and doing gigs. It wasn’t an easy decision to make, but something I need to do. I have been doing 250 shows a year and I just can’t keep doing it. There are several reasons why I am giving up and will tell you when I see you

I want to thank you all for your kindness and support and coming to so many gigs over the years

I will really miss it and all of you, but have great memories of 30 years of gigging

My last public gig will be on the 17th November at Under The Bridge Chelsea, Stamford Bridge Fulham Road, London SW6 1HS. Tickets are £60 each and you can book them through my RocknRoll Holidays site here.

It will be a very sad night for me, but I am looking forward to a new life!
