We have been looking at the response to our special Dortmund ticket offer, and although some people are upset at the late nature of the offer, the balance of feedback was pretty even. We have decided to go ahead and make a similar offer for the other venues on the 'Still growing Up Tour'. We will be adding limited numbers of these tickets to womadshop.com in the next day or so - I'll let you know when they are available.
Finally we have a new poll for you to contribute to. We have been asked by Peter to get your feedback on some new tour T-Shirt designs. So click on the polls link on the bottom menu and get voting!

More information on Peter's newly launched MUDDA - Magnificent Union of Digitaly Downloading Artists can now be found at the link below.
"Four years ago I co-founded (and am now a shareholder in) a digital downloading service with Charles Grimsdale, called OD2. I got involved because I thought there were interesting opportunities and I wanted to have access to digital delivery both for my work and for all the artists on Real World Records
Although OD2s initial focus was the Independents, we are now Europes number one digital distributor for music working with all five majors and are about to launch in Australia and Asia this year.
We are determined that we should try and take advantage of this situation and help transform the music business in such a way that artists are on level terms with record companies, receive fair payments and have new opportunities to be their own retailer when they choose.
I have been developing ideas with Brian Eno for an alliance of artists to ensure that artists interests are treated fairly, as this new business model takes shape. This dream for MUDDA can only become a reality with enough endorsement and involvement of other artists." Peter Gabriel
More information on MUDDA will be coming soon.
