Chris Moyles

If you’ve a penchant for Radio 1 DJs both past (well, almost… Moyles’ last ever R1 breakfast show takes place tomorrow) and present, you’ll love the fact that Chris Moyles and Zane Lowe are each embarking on their own (solo) tours.

Zane’s is a Nokia Lumia-sponsored affair, and will comprise Lowe doing DJ sets at universities. Look, he’s even doing two PA’s in a single night!

But now to Chris ‘King Herod’ Moyles who, as retired radio royalty (well, until he gets his next gig), will appear live and laughing amid the “non-stop banter” and “fun and games” of his own off-air jolly. ‘Chris Moyles Live’ will feature a live band, live singing and live comedy as Chris ‘and friends’ (presumably his soon-to-be-jobless Radio 1 colleagues) encourage crowds to participate across the nation.

He says: “This is my first chance to get out and see the fans since I left the radio show. It will be a night of singing and laughing and messing about. If you share my same sense of humour and love for bad karaoke, then this is the show for you”.
