Lark Brave Tour


2009-01-27

This tour is Lark's once off return to SA after precisely 1 year since their last show at the 2008 RAMFEST. The band was approached by RAMFEST towards the end of last year and asked if Paul would consider doing a Lark show at the festival if they flew him back from the UK, which is now his home. The band who never broke up for reasons of "irreconcilable differences" or other such typical reasons ... but only because Paul had to leave for the UK. The band jumped at the chance to play with one another again and hence decided to do a tour around this performance.

They have titled the tour ‘Brave' after the bands new single. Lark are also using this opportunity to release a live DVD of their concert held at the Pavilion Theatre in June 2007 titled Dagger and a Feather where they invited guest artists Johnny de Ridder (Fokofpolisiekar) and Kyla Rose Smith (Freshlyground) to perform alongside the band and a classical string section and with VJ Grrrl on visuals. The stage was decked out in playroom props to emulate a children's playroom with an eery look and feel to it. The concert was recorded in 5.1 surround. This is to date the most extravagant performance of the bands career in terms of the time and effort that went into this show to ensure first class showmanship and visual representation of the bands creative performance ideals.

Please follow this link for a glimpse from the concert.

This DVD will be a double disk release with a live 18 track audio surround sound recording of the concert with music videos and additional interviews with all those involved in the Dagger and a Feather concert.

The DVD will be available for sale at the shows!

A limited edition Brave t-shirt run will be made for the tour.
