2017 has seen KING SIZE SLIM perform in France, Belgium, Romania, Hungary and Bahrain and across the UK, many miles travelled, many songs sung on many stages. Many thanks to This is Now agency, DHP family and all of the promotors reps and stage managers and sound engineers who've ably assisted along the way.
The new digipak C.D release 'Live at The Palace' continues to receive great reviews and a surprising amount of radio airplay, radio stations are not generally keen on airing live recordings.

Late summer and Autumn has seen KING SIZE SLIM solo shows across the UK, France and Belgium. Now as the nights get longer so do the miles travelled. Toby Barelli KING SIZE SLIM will be ably assisting Blues-loop-machine maniac SON OF DAVE on selected dates on his UK tour. The package worked so well last year that the pair are on the road again in 2017 by popular request. Theres a winter solo tour returning to France, some lovely UK Sunday Sessions and a whistle-stop one-nighter on the middle-eastern Island of Bahrain all to come. Watch the gig-list for details...
