GOING BACK TO SWITZERLAND!
Our SpringTour is shaping up nicely, and we've got a couple of surprises! Ticket info is all here... We'll be returning to Switzerland for the first time in a few years- we'll be at the Stadtsaal in Wil on March 7th; the Volkshaus in Zürich on March 8th; and the Hotel National in Bern on March 9th. After that, we head over to Belgium- we'll be at GC de Bosuil in Overijse on March 15th; and then CC de Link in the metropolis that is Sint Eloois Winkel! We can't wait for you to hear the new songs from our upcoming album!
HAPPY CHRISTMAS FROM THE PICKETS!
We're really looking forward to seeing you in the New Year- (we've got some great shows lined up for the Spring, details are here!); and we've decided to get into the right spirit (and also celebrate 35 years since Only You was at No1 in the UK!) by cutting the price of a digital copy of our "Strike Again' album, here on the website, until Dec 31st- to just £3.50 (yeh!), so if you haven't yet heard it, now there's one extra reason to download it! Happy Christmas!!
MORE AUTUMN TOUR INFO!
A quick reminder! We’re looking forward to returning to Austria- Theater Akzent in Wien on Oct 16th; and then to Frohnleiten (18th), Kammern im Liesingtal (19th), and Sankt Lorenz im Murztal (20th)… and then we make our last trip to Germany for 2018 when we visit Halle/Saale on Oct 27th. If you're quick, there's still a few tickets left… Ticket info is all here.
As well as songs from ‘Strike Again’, there’ll be a special sneak preview of a few of the songs from the next album, which we’re recording right now!
And… more news about 2019 shows is coming soon…. ;-)
WE GOT CAUGHT IN AUSTRIA!
...The Pickets have been busy this Spring, touring the ‘Strike Again’ show. We've been back in Austria again, where in March ORF TV caught up with them in Götzis... It seems news of the Pickets' old secret admirer is out... oops...
FIRST GERMAN SHOWS OF THE YEAR!
So 2018 is flying by; our Austrian Spring Tour was a big hit (check out the video!)... and now we're heading towards Germany after Easter. We've got a couple of great shows in Bayreuth on Friday 6th April, and in Hallstadt (nr Bamberg) on Sat 7th April.
As usual, all ticket information is here; there are still a few left at the moment... but don't wait too long!
We'll be returning to northern Germany in the summer, and Halle in the Autumn, but as things stand, these are our only southern Germany shows this year... so if you're near Nürnberg or Regensburg- or anywhere west of Prague, this might be the closest we come this year! ;-)
BACK IN AUSTRIA IN THE SPRING!
So 2018 has got off to a great start already, and we’re thrilled to let you know about our upcoming spring Austrian Tour. We start off on Feb 15th down south in Weiz, and then travel to Ziersdorf (Feb 16th), and Tulln near Vienna (Feb 17th), before visiting Götzis, near Liechtenstein in the very far west (Mar 15th), then Wörgl in Tirol (Mar 16th), before heading back south to finish up in Leibnitz near Graz on Mar 17th. All ticket information is here- grab them quick- like last time, we’re expecting they’ll sell out pretty fast! We can’t wait to see you again!
CHECK OUT OUR BRAND NEW VIDEO!
Since the tree's decorated now, and everything smells of mulled wine (glühwein?!), we've made a special video for 'Christmas Present' from our Christmas album 'Only Yule'! Why not have a listen to the whole album whilst the turkey's cooking..?!
'BIG MOUTH' & 'ONLY YULE' ALBUMS AVAILABLE ON iTUNES
With the Santa Season just round the corner, don't forget that 'Only Yule', the Pickets album of Christmas original and classic songs is still available to download on iTunes...
... As is 'Big Mouth', which also features a mixture of original Pickets numbers and some well known classics given the Pickets special treatment!
AND... OUR AUTUMN TOUR OF AUSTRIA!
Don't forget we'll be coming to Austria this Autumn as well... We start off all spooky on Halloween in Friesach, and then we'll stop off in Bärnbach, Leoben and Liezen. Full ticket info is all here on the Dates page...
THE PICKETS ARE COMING TO HOLLAND!
We are very proud to announce that we've just been invited to play a short set at the 35th 'Nacht van de Poezie' in Utrecht on Sat 16th Sept (yeh, soon!!)- it's an overdue return for us as we were last there in 1990! In fact, it'll be the first time we've been in Holland for several years.
NEW ALBUM 'STRIKE AGAIN' IS OUT NOW!
So... Finally, we can tell you! The new Flying Pickets mini-album is called 'Strike Again' and it's out right now... we can't wait for you to hear it!
It has a 'sneak preview' release on CD only before it goes up on iTunes etc, so if you want to hear it before everyone else, the best place to get one is at an upcoming Pickets live show (see the 'Dates' page for more info on that)...!
As soon as it hits iTunes, we'll put a link up if you want a download only, but if you can't get to the next shows and you want a real old-fashioned silver CD, just drop us a line here and we'll fix you up!
WELCOME TO THE PICKETS NEW WEBSITE!
We've re-designed the whole thing from top to bottom... Now you can check out our tour dates and book tickets from here, you can preview tracks from our new album Strike Again as well as our other recent albums... and coming very soon you'll be able to download tracks from here directly too!
So... have a good look around and let us know what you think using the new Contact form here!
