Vieux Farka Toure

“In live performances Touré induces a trance-like effect on audiences” The Quietus

The man often referred to as “The Hendrix of the Sahara” embarks on a solo tour in support of his latest critically acclaimed album Samba. Much like his late father Ali Farka Toure, Vieux has been at the forefront of African music for many years.

Son of Grammy award-winning Malian blues musician, Ali Farka Touré, he has also achieved the status of globally renowned guitarist and songwriter. He has been recording music for over ten years and is known for his intricate guitar riffs and traditional vocals. He mingles desert blues with Western Rock influences from the seventies and eighties and his latest release received plaudits across the board.

The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email gigs@thefleece.co.uk for more details.
