Steve Ignorant announces London as final show of Last Supper Tour

24 Feb
Steve Ignorant announces the details of the FINAL show of the Last Supper tour…
So here it is then – the final date for the final gig, it’s so weird looking at it knowing it’s going to be the last time I ever perform Crass songs live on stage. I know that was the idea behind this Last Supper tour, but to see it in black and white in front of you like this really makes it final. I know that every gig I do is special and that me and the band put 1000% into every performance, but I have to admit to you all, this one will be special.
If you’re thinking of coming, bring some tissues – it’s gonna be emotional– Steve Ignorant

BACKGROUND 

In 2007, STEVE IGNORANT gathered some friends together and put on two shows at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.
Called The Feeding Of 5000, the show was a celebration of the Crass album of the same name, which was performed in its entirety.

It most certainly was not a CRASS reunion, and never sought to be.
The Last Supper tour answers the calls that have come from around the globe in response to the Shepherd’s Bush gigs. Steve is celebrating the period of Crass’ work with which he feels most closely aligned – the period when he feels the band were at the strongest, most productive and most hopeful.
Steve continues to perform with a full band. The touring line up includes Gizz Butt (guitar), Bob Butler (bass), Spike T Smith (drums), Carol Hodge (vocals) and of course Steve Ignorant (vocals). As well as featuring Crass songs (plus a few other favourites) there are some rather special visuals. 

Having started in London in 2007, this new expanded show has visited other parts of the UK and Europe and is soon going to head across the pond to North America before the FINALE in London. At which point the door will be firmly closed.
