See the Dial perform live:
As some of you may already be aware, our guitarist Steve Freeman was rushed to hospital on Thursday 20th February and underwent major surgery to his aorta (it's something to do with the heart).
The operation was a success, but he now faces a long recovery period. This means the band's next performance will not be until Saturday 9th May at The Swan Hotel, Westgate.
Huge thanks to everyone who's messaged, texted, emailed wishing Steve well.
We love you all and look forward to seeing you in May.
Saturday May 9th - Swan Hotel (Westgate)
Sunday May 10th @ 4pm - CinCins (Deal)
