Razorlight / November 2008 UK Tour

By on Sunday, 28th September 2008 at 5:13 pm

As much as I love to hate Johnny Borrell, Razorlight‘s new single is pretty darned good. And to celebrate the release of their shiny new album in November they’re back on the road.

Johnny reportedly said that “we’re playing the best venues in the country, a proper rock and roll tour. We’re going to give it everything”. So expect a reasonable show that inflates his ego to epic proportions! Let’s just hope it means he can buy some more clothes instead of his usual white babygrow.

Monday 10th November – Exeter University
