TUKUO -- THOUSANDS of SOLD OUT CONCERTS !?!?!
"The Orchestra was formed in 1985 as a bit of fun, but the first gig was an instant sell-out, and they´ve been performing ever since. By 1988 they had released an LP, appeared on BBC TV, played at WOMAD and recorded a BBC Radio 1 session. The current ensemble has been playing together for over 20 years, and has become something of a national institution. The Orchestra has given thousands of sold-out concerts across the world, including Great Britain, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Poland, France, America, Canada, New Zealand and Japan."
Humble Uker Request
Anyone that has been present for one of these thousands of concerts please share your experience in a comment below. I want to know. I stand almost entirely alone as someone that likes TUKUO's videos but I am extremely skeptical of their publicity. Does anyone have a copy of the LP? Or perhaps someone has seen a recent concert -- please let us know about the experience.
Commenter Ted added a side by side band comparison link, here. Which also includes the request for players to go on tour in Germany. It appears HU has made a foolish mistake of galactic proportions and my apologies to the Cosmos. Okay, I hate them too. Well, I don't really hate them, but I'm sure they won't be doing any tux-clad Proms upon arriving back home.
MORE ADDED INFO:
OBVIOUSLY The quote from the "Vienna Ticket Office" above is a Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain (UOGB) release and NOT the TUKUO band's information.
