Following a major UK tour earlier this year; National Treasures Si King and Dave Myers, aka The Hairy Bikers, have announced their 2020 live tour across the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland. With their irresistible enthusiasm, The Hairy Biker’s tour offers an epic night of cooking and conversation.
The Hairy Bikers have been entertaining Britain with their TV shows for over a decade and have sold millions of copies of their books. Their unique blend of foodie expertise, humour and motorbike enthusiasm has earned them a huge and loyal following. They are regular faces on the BBC, with many Prime-Time TV successes tucked under their leathers. Their new book One Pot Wonders will be released on October 31.
Born and bred in Barrow-in-Furness, Dave Myers' versatile skills have taken him to some unusual places. He worked in a steelworks as a student, to finance his studies in Fine Arts, and later joined the BBC as a make-up artist, specialising in prosthetics. Si King hails from North East England and is a big, blond bearded biker with an infectious laugh. He worked for many years as an Assistant Director and Locations Manager for film and television, including the Harry Potter films.
Si and Dave met on the set of a TV drama in 1995 and have been cooking and riding together ever since. They have now written over 20 cookbooks, including British Classics, Mediterranean Adventure, Bakeation, Meat Feasts and 12 Days of Christmas. In 2012, the boys shed more than six stone between them on The Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight.
Earlier this year Si and Dave said: “We can’t wait to tour again in 2020. The audience is a huge part of our show, so no night is the same! There will be music, chat, food, questions, answers, fun and frolics. A perfect bikers night out! See you there.”
