News: More Live Shows for The Horne Section

Comedy band The Horne Section has extended its biggest UK tour to date due to overwhelming demand for tickets after their latest show That’s How I Like My Tour enjoyed a sell-out run in 2019. The extension runs from 16th March to 15th July 2020, with two special shows at London’s iconic jazz venue Ronnie Scott’s on 27th and 28th April, marking the band’s ten year anniversary in the place where it all began. The tour is on sale now with tickets for the Ronnie Scott’s shows on pre-sale for members from Monday 13th and general sale from Thursday 16th January. Tickets can be found at or for some dates you can also try here.

Unruly, ridiculous and surprisingly satisfying, The Horne Section combine music and comedy in a typically unpredictable way, blending stupid songs with a carnival atmosphere and plenty of puns. Expect a mixture of toe-tapping tunes, exceptional musicality, and 5 talented musicians being made to do silly things by bearded comedian, and creator & star of Taskmaster, Alex Horne.

The band’s TV credits include regular appearances in Dictionary Corner on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), The Royal Variety Performance 2018 (ITV), Last Leg Christmas Special (Channel 4), as well as the 2 hour special The Horne Section Television Programme on UKTV’s Dave. Filmed at the London Palladium in front of a sold out live audience, the variety show featured guest appearances from Sue Perkins, Sara Pascoe, Joe Wilkinson, and Girls Aloud’s Nadine Coyle.

Away from the stage, their podcast The Horne Section Podcast reached number one in the iTunes charts on the first day of its release and features a variety of guests including Nish Kumar, Richard Osman, Roisin Conaty, and Rick Edwards. The band have previously hosted three series of Alex Horne Presents The Horne Section on BBC Radio 4.

The band have performed to numerous sold-out audiences at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe as well as at The Lyric Theatre - Shaftesbury Avenue, The Criterion Theatre and The Hackney Empire, Udderbelly Festival - Southbank, and The Leicester Square Speigletent.

Acclaimed comedian Alex Horne is the unmusical band leader at the helm of The Horne Section. Alex is the creator and co-host of Taskmaster which is set to return for its 10th series on Channel 4 in 2020. An international hit, the original Taskmaster programme and format combined has been sold into 106 countries.

The Horne Section are: Alex Horne (band leader), Joe Auckland (trumpet and banjo), Mark Brown (saxophone), Will Collier (bass), Ben Reynolds (drums and percussion) and Ed Sheldrake (keyboards).
