A very unique evening - Russ and Ian deliver two masterclasses of brilliant contrast, including close audience participation, dedicated Q & A session, musical performances with bass player, Kev Walker, and drum duet finale. Held at the new media centre of The Echo Factory, it's going to be an amazing evening!

 

Starts 19.00 Ends 21.30 (How can it end at 21.30 when Russell is involved? I know that's what I thought as well).

 

Tickets available here.
