On first glance an acoustic tour might seem a strange way of celebrating Ride's gloriously noisy journey through thirty years of sound, especially one that was termed 'shoegaze' by the media in the '90s. The tour idea originally sprung from a unique night in April earlier this year when Ride played a beautiful old church, St Paul's, in Worthing. Ride performed an entire acoustic set, mixing in recent songs from the acclaimed 'Tomorrow's Shore' EP and 'Weather Diaries' album - both produced by Erol Alkan and mixed by Alan Moulder - with tracks from Creation-era classics 'Nowhere', 'Going Blank Again' and 'Carnival Of Light'. The set sounded totally psychedelic and robust, retaining the magic of the full electric set up and completely captivating the audience. So much so, it seemed like a good idea to do it again.
