Tim Burgess calls an end to Tim’s Twitter Listening Parties

Tim Burgess has announced that he is bringing Tim’s Twitter Listening Party to an end after three years.

The online album listening parties began in March 2020 during the first UK COVID lockdown, and this year the concept was developed into a show for Absolute Radio.

The social media events saw Burgess and fans convene on Twitter at the same time to listen to and tweet along with an album. In the subsequent three years more than 1000 albums have been listened to, with the original artists sometimes also joining in.

“From [The Charlatans’] ‘Some Friendly’ to ‘Wham! The Singles’, 1366 albums that we heard together, over 1213 days from 23 Mar 2020, the Twitter Listening Parties was a beautiful thing”, wrote Burgess on Twitter. “Thanks to everyone who joined us”.

He added that a final special edition of the spin-off radio show will be broadcast this Sunday, listening to The Charlatans’ ‘Tellin Stories’ album. The show will be presented by Danielle Perry, with Burgess appearing as a guest to discuss how he and the band made the record.

Over 1000 of the listening parties can be replayed as they happened on the Tim’s Twitter Listening Parties website below👇
