March 2022 - update attention tour update attention tour update

Hi everyone. We have a couple of mid tour announcements you will need to consider if you are planning to attend the tour dates.

PLEASE NOTE. The London venue is now listed as The Electric Ballroom, our information was incorrect at the time of posting the tour dates so our apologies.

PLEASE NOTE. Stage times for Dave will now be 10 minutes before the posted times on all Dave Sharp online pages so please be sure to arrive at the venue in good time to catch the beginning of Daves performance, eg, if the posted showtime for Dave is 7.30, Dave will be onstage at 7.20. This will effectively extend Daves show from 40 mins to 50 mins. See tour dates below.

There is a strong circulating rumour that Dave will be performing Tell Me from the Alarm Declaration album. This will be the first time Dave has played this song live since the final night at the Alarm Brixton concert in 1991 when Dave last played live with Eddie Macdonald, Twist and Mike Peters as The Alarm.

Please stay tuned for further updates and up to date information as the tour progresses.

We look forwards to seeing you on The Alarm 40th anniversary tour and please remember to be safe and aware when in a crowded venue.

Keep the Faith.
