RockItt announce special summer concert dates

Special one off dates for fans in July and September...

April 21, 2008 -- Following their enormously successful European Tour, RockItt have announced dates for a series of concerts throughout the Summer.

"It's definitely not a tour", said keyboard maestro Shag Fury, "we're spent a lot of time on the road already this year basically to underpin the fact that we have reformed.  We wanted the fans to get a chance to see the new line up; our loyal fans have been waiting a long time for the chance to see RockItt again.  But now we want to spend some time in the studio working on some new material".

As bass player Wayne Kranium explains, "my writing partnership with Shag has clicked again straight away.  We are very, very excited about the beautiful music that we're making".

The plans for some studio time - which may include a new album later in the year - has not dampened the band's enthusiasm for live performance.  "RockItt are basically a live band", said singer Margot Chutney, "performing is what I do and being in front of a throbbing crowd is where I like to do it".

Guitarist Buzz Muffberger agrees: "Now we're back, we want to keep things on the boil with a few special performances throughout the summer".  The band have already been linked with an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival although this remains unconfirmed and they will also play a date in Spain as a favour to the Shag Fury's Executive Personal Make-up Artist and Stylist Curly Kitt.  The band have also now added public dates - both in Shag Fury's home town of Bath.  The band will play intimate gigs on Saturday 5 July at the Green Park Tavern and Saturday 27 September St James' Wine Vaults.  There will also be performances at private parties on Saturday 12 July and - provisionally - at an open air gig a week later on Saturday 19 July.

Drummer Minty Clinch is reportedly very excited about the new dates although www.rockitt.co.uk was unable to track him down for comment.
