THE NEW FLAME CHAT ROOM:
“In a very crowded chat room today with Norman are four USA visitors plus Peter Field. The USA people are the European organisers of “The Extreme Tour” ( www.theextremetour.com ) plus Ted Bruun, the founder. The Extreme Tour began as a grassroots project of “The Extreme,” a cultural outreach project started by Ted Bruun and a small group of other Idaho residents in 1994. The purpose of The Extreme was to use Extreme Sports and Music Events, to reach at-risk and counter culture youth with services and resources that would assist them in making positive, as well as healthy, decisions for a successful life. The effort was successful and spread quickly across the USA and has now become world-wide. Hence these USA folk involved in events in the UK. Don’t expect a sleepy programme, be prepared to be enthused by the chat and energised by the music. They comment that whilst most music tours are simply marketing devices, the Extreme Tour, however, is a charitable effort. And, like any effective charitable effort, Extreme Tour events are tailored specifically to the mission and vision of the community organizations they are serving in the places they visit and to meeting the needs of the people those organizations serve. Attendances can vary quite a bit in size, based primarily on the charitable purpose of the organizations they are serving and events are often held in unusual concert settings like public squares, city parks, blocked off city streets, the occasional school, or even in large car parks. Local bands are often involved to build a base of fans and friends in the communities they visit. The Extreme Tour is known for making events which are a very personal, intimate experience for all those who attend.
TONIGHT AT 20:00 and at other times during the week. Check us out and join in and be blessed
