“The gravel-throated don of R&B” Big Boy Bloater And The LiMiTs will be stepping away from touring for a while, and to celebrate a decade of The LiMiTs they will embark on ‘The Any Last Requests?’ Tour through March and April, giving the fans the opportunity to choose the set list..
Talking about the upcoming shows, Bloater says; “The tour is called ‘The Any Last Requests Tour’ and we’ve let the fans pick the set list from the entire LiMiTs back catalogue. I wanted to do a set that would really give the fans what they wanted and go out on a high note. There’s the usual Bloater classics in there but also a few left field choices that have not often (if ever) been played live. There’s also a couple of non LiMiTs songs that have been requested but I thought, “What the hell! Why not?”. So it truly is a show for the fans it should be interesting and a challenge!”
