Thomas Dolby just tweeted the following:

'Splendid news of special guests for my gig Feb 28th: Bruce Woolley, 2 members of Prefab Sprout + interest from Eddi Reader and Trevor Horn!'

I've asked him which two! :)

So am I understanding that he's tweeting about a show he's gonna do in Feb 2010?

edit: never mind, I see now it is in London 2010

Seems a long way off the be counting the celebrty guest-list up at this point, but cool news either way

Based on nothing (almost): My guess is Martin and Neil.

I think I'll try to go. Why Neil, Langley? I'm thinking Wendy and Martin.

But what would Wendy do? He has Reader for his duets.

Nobody, unless he's selling ice creams during the interval.

Well, that's my second choice. But Neil has played with Dolby before, and it just feels like he's more up for this kinda thing, having done many sessions.

Btw, has Conti's site looked like this for a long time?

Well done that man :) The special guests are indeed Martin and Wendy.

But before we all get too excited, Martin has asked me to point out that it's only for one song ("I Scare Myself") when he'll be playing bass and Wendy will feature on backing vocals. He describes the event as a rehearsal/gig/interview/interactive happening, and is sure that there will also be some form of streaming available on the internet. He says that unless anyone is heavily into Thomas Dolby, then it'll be a lot of faff-on for three minutes of him and Wendy playing/singing out of time/tune.

So, is anyone still up for it? Would it make any difference if a Sprout fans meet-up could be organised around the event, and have Mart and Wendy drop by? Just a thought.

Even with my exorbitant amount of money I don't think I'll be able to make it, although I do need more in my concert list than The Village People and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

The McAloon brothers really do excel when it comes to promoting themselves don't they?

Yep, I'm beginning to think they handled the promotion for Kevin Rowland's "My Beauty".

I'm vaguely interested, oddly enough...though I've never really got into Thomas Dolby. If you all suddenly plan a mass exodus to London, let me know.
