FINALLY!! The good word of Rev. Billy and his amazing anti-consumerism gospel choir, is making its way to British soil:

“Reverend Billy and the Life After Shopping Gospel Choir is touring the UK May 19 to June 1st. We will perform in Norwich, Stamford, Cambridge, Colchester, Ipswich, Exeter, Bristol, Liverpol, B’ham, London and Brighton.
