Joshua Burnside / November and December 2018 UK Tour

By on Tuesday, 6th November 2018 at 9:00 am

Northern Irish art-rock singer/songwriter Joshua Burnside has recently announced a lengthy run of tour dates in England for the end of this year, as well as a pair of dates at home in Belfast to bookend the English dates. This tour is in preparation for Burnside’s upcoming EP release ‘Wear Bluebells In Your Hat If You’re Goin’ That Way’, which is a “reconstituted and embellished” deluxe version of his 2013 EP ‘If You’re Goin’ That Way’. The new EP is due out on the 11th of January 2019 via Quiet Arch. You can take a listen to its blues-tinged lead single ‘Black Dog Sin’ just below the tour date listing.

On 3rd December, Burnside will officially begin his University ‘Coffee House’ Tour, which includes, as you might expect, stops at University venues around England. Burnside will wrap up the tour with a show at Belfast Elmwood Hall just before Christmas on the 21st of December. Tickets for the following shows are available now.
