• Ricky Gervais’ fictional band Foregone Conclusion announces tour dates

    David Brent and his fictional band from Britain’s The Office are officially on tour! Ricky Gervais tweeted yesterday via his character’s account that Foregone Conclusion will be playing two shows at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre in October.

    The British comedian made the announcement over a series of minor hints over the past few months. The paper merchant manager has made appearances in several videos put out on Gervais’ YouTube channel. One features the character giving a tutorial called “Learn Guitar with David Brent.” Another is a hilarious rap song called “Equality Street.”

    “David Brent” announced, “Tickets go on sale Tuesday at 10am” and wished his fans, “Good luck.” They’ll certainly need it to score admission to the shows, as they are sure to sell out quickly! We wouldn’t be surprised to see an American tour after Foregone Conclusion shakes off its cobwebs.

    Until then, enjoy a walk down “Equality Street” from the star of the upcoming Muppets sequel!
