Ricky Gervais has announced new tour dates for The Office’s David Brent and his fictional band Foregone Conclusion.
Earlier this year, Gervais released David Brent: Life On The Road – a film about Brent’s attempts to leave the sales rep business and fulfil dream of becoming a rockstar with Foregone Conclusion. It came with an accompanying album. The band features former Razorlight and We Are Scientists drummer, Andy Burrows.
“Brent’s been sold a lie,” Gervais told NME in our full and frank interview. “He was told that if you’re not performing, you won’t be popular. And if you’re not popular, then you’re nothing. People don’t think they exist unless they’re in the paper or they’re trying to be a singer. For Brent, it’s a vanity project. But it’s really bad – he’s a man at his lowest ebb.”
Now, David Brent and Foregone Conclusion have announced details of two UK gigs. Dates are below and tickets are on sale from 10am on Saturday 8 October.
Thu December 15 2016 – BOURNEMOUTH BIC
