GET CAPE. WEAR CAPE. FLY The Farewell Tour – Support from Sean McGowan and Rob Lynch

For a full decade, Sam Duckworth has existed under the moniker of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.

Yet, all good things must come to an end. Or at least transform. And so it comes to pass that Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly will embark on its final live performances this coming September, including the Cheese & Grain on the 5th.

The singer song-writer who has played main stage at festivals such as Reading, Leeds and Glastonbury and even had an episode of American teen drama ‘One Tree Hill’ named after him; handpicked Frome to be his only non-city farewell tour stop. Turning down offers from much larger cities and towns to ensure his last south west show would be in Frome. Having previously played Frome earlier in the year and enjoying it so much he decided it would be ideal for the farewell tour.

For this show GCWCF will end as it began; one voice, an acoustic guitar, and a laptop, playing a set consisting primarily of tracks from the debut album ‘Chronicles of A Bohemian Teenager’ (though Sam is open to suggestions, should anyone have anything they feel they really need to hear for that one. last. time).

GCWCF remains best known for his hit chart singles which include ‘Find The Time’, ‘War Of The Worlds’, ‘Call Me Ishmael’ and ‘I-Spy’.

Support will be Southampton’s young folk-punk troubadour Seán McGowan, who recently released his debut single for Sunday Best, as well as Rob Lynch who will be fresh off a two month stint on the Vans Warped tour in America and just before releasing his debut album ‘All These Nights In Bars Will Somehow Save My Soul’.

On the subject of the tour, Sam said, “Here we are, a week and a Glastonbury after announcing the end and there’s a silver lining of some sorts.

“It doesn’t feel right to just stay in London, as there are many of you around the country who I’d love to sing these songs with one last time. I really want the Forum to be the ultimate realisation of how the songs were meant to sound – before I filled them with way too many instruments… This will, however, be the only full band show of the tour – partly for logistics, a bit to make it less risky for promoters (it really is hard to tell how many people out there would want to come) and mostly to close the chapter how it started.

“I would love it if you’d join me in saying goodbye to ‘Chronicles’ (this feels like the album most suited to one man and a laptop) but also a few of the other tunes too. We’ve tried to go as far afield as possible but unfortunately the days of 56 date mega tours are over for a bit, alas I am a bohemian teenager no more (if I ever really was…)”

GET CAPE. WEAR CAPE. FLY – The Farewell Tour will be at the Cheese & Grain on Friday 5th September. Tickets £10 advance / £12 doors –
