"The idea would be to turn up at the back stage door at 4.00pm. You must pay £10.00/15euros in cash into the charity box. The first twenty people to confirm they want to do this by clicking here to here to mail us will have a place reserved at a venue of their choice.
"All proceeds will go to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and Childline and the money will be handed over in London on the 23rd April for the UK leg and the last day of the tour for Europe. I think this is a first and I would like to make it happen.
"P.S.: We cannot do this at festivals and Leamington Spa because this is our first show.
"Because so many of you are already registered for the newsletter lots of places are already gone. BUT It is not too late to register and sign up for the newsletter and we promise you that more things like this are coming.
"People had this info already for three days and a lot of places are already gone and if you want to get the advantage for newsletter in future: Sign up!

"Further we would like to say that we are very sorry that the very beautiful venue Elysee Montmartre got damaged by a fire. We will definitely play the date in Paris. The gig has been moved now to the Bataclan where we're gonna rock in Paris.
"One more thing is that the venue in Milan (The Limelight) is closed. We are playing the Alcatraz instead.
"See you on tour!"
