I would have loved to have seen Paul Heaton at the darling Cake Shop because I know how cozy it is and how, uh, close I could get to him. Nevertheless I did score a ticket to see him here at the Monarch in May. Ace! Thank you so much for the link, Sam. I would have never known about this otherwise. That Paul is cycling from each place to each pub makes me like him even more. I want to catch up to him somewhere pedalling away! Maybe he will appreciate the engineering functionality of my Brompton. And from the pictures I've seen online, he's still got a nice healthy head of hair. Ooh.

Paul Heaton’s Pedals and Beer Pumps Tour 2010 – A Case Study
Added on 2nd Feb 2010 by Catherine
Whilst us busy bods here at Julie’s Bicycle are working hard to complete our next report, we are always happy to bring you news which is related to what we’ve been researching – and this one came straight to us out of the blue! Whilst musician travel brings to many a stereotypical image of lines of posh tour buses and trucks rolling up at the crack of dawn to play to their faithful masses, Paul Heaton (famously known for his involvement in Housemartins and in the Beautiful South), will be touring the pubs and small villages of England – by bicycle.
In a daunting 720 mile round journey, starting from the Rovers Return in Manchester, Paul will visit a series of small pubs and villages to perform. The tour starts in Manchester, travelling to the set of Eastenders in London, returning to Yorkshire for the set of Emmerdale, and lastly back to Manchester. He won’t be completely alone however, as his band members and tour support will be following him as a team on the way back from London.
This is not only a great opportunity to support the traditional English village pub, but as Conrad Murray (SJM Concerts, Promoter) highlights, a green chance “to promote the greenest transport of all”. And here at Julie’s Bicycle, we’re intrigued and impressed by this huge effort to promote cycling as a method of transportation for touring.
So take the opportunity to support – keep an eye on his Myspace page here: http://www.myspace.com/paulheatonmusic
Perhaps we’ll even see you at one of those small pubs!
There's more than one use for every part
