"An Intimate Space"
30th Anniversary Acoustic Tour 2010

After three decades together, the church return to North America for a special 30th anniversary acoustic tour throughout April and May 2010.

“An Intimate Space” will include songs that span the length of the church’s epic creative trip from their debut in 1980 to their latest critically acclaimed 2009 album Untitled # 23.

In a unique and unusual execution, the band will choose one song from each of their considerable album releases and perform them in reverse chronological order. This original show will have the fans gliding softly down through the years, opening with a track from their latest album Untitled #23 before embarking on a fantastic voyage through time ultimately arriving at their first Australian album Of Skins And Heart where it all began. This engaging and rare performance is not to be missed.

- FREE CD - Every ticket holder will receive a free copy of Deadman’s Hand, the third EP from the Untitled #23 album. This EP will include the title track and unreleased tracks from the band’s secret vault, a must have for all church fans and collectors.

Untitled #23 has received rave reviews from critics and fans alike all over the world. Here are some highlights....

Rolling Stone Australia gave the album an unprecedented 5 star review:
“… a stunningly ambitious album of shimmering rock.”

Rolling Stone USA in Fricke’s Picks:
“a genuine milestone in longevity and psychedelic invention.”

Classic Rock UK:
“what is on offer - aside from a masterpiece of dynamics and craft - is the irresistible sound of integrity.”

The Age:
“It's a haunting, dark, thrilling, ecstatic, melodic psychedelic journey in ten unforgettable pieces. “

Beat Magazine:
"Untitled #23 is kaleidoscopic but accessible, tightly focused psych-pop brilliance..."

Sydney Morning Herald:
"sparkling electric poetry from some guitar-shaped hole in the universe."

Tickets to this special intimate show are $35.00 and include CD.

I'm so stoked! Check out the official website of the church for information on additional U.S. dates as they are announced.

    I'm thrilled about this too! Their tour isn't at a great time for me this year, but I'm going to see at least a show or two anyway!
