The traditional UK Winter tour officially ended in 2016 with the "Last Night of the Electrics" tour but 25th April saw the announcement of a tour of a different kind to take its place, with a nine-date "Aquostic" tour in theatres and smaller arenas. The FTMO fan club pre-sale started on 25th April with various other pre-sales following, before general ticket sales started a week later. A number of premium packages were also offered, including "Front row experiences" at the Hammersmith Apollo retailing at just over two hundred pounds a seat!

The full emotional interview can be heard here.Revisit the April 2017 event list
