Sheer Music has announced the date for the highly anticipated Jon Gomm gig in Devizes.
The show will now take place on Saturday 17th October at St. Mary’s Church, New Park Street and Jon will be ably supported by Swindon’s Jimmy Moore – one of this blog’s personal favourites.
If you’re unfamiliar with Jon’s work, check out the video below:
Awesome, right?! And it gets better, that song is available for just 1p on Gomm’s wonderfully cartoony website, right here – http://jongomm.com/downloads
Tickets for the original show are still valid, and more are available right here (http://www.wegottickets.com/event/298061) and are selling super fast!
Singer-songwriter Jon became an unlikely hero in the metal community last year after playing Download and speaking out against the stereotyping of metal fans:
“So much fun playing at Download. Metal people are the best people. As a non-metal (although I can feel that changing inside me) I just wanna point out an obvious thing: Metal fans are like a family. The bullshit media stereotype of ‘Teenage Gunman Was Death Metal Fan’ makes me so angry. I’ve never felt more appreciation, respect, humour and LOVE at a festival. I hope when I have kids they’re metal fans. Maximum respect to you all. And thanks for having me.”
