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.

Ash / October and November 2009 UK Tour

By on Wednesday, 26th August 2009 at 1:46 pm

Ash are re-inventing themselves as one of the most innovative indie bands out there. They’ve ditched the old format of doing albums, and are releasing their “A-Z Series”, a collection of 26 limited edition 7″ and digital download singles, released fortnightly over the coming year. To celebrate, they’re playing an “A-Z tour”, playing 26 lesser-known venues around the country from Aldershot to Zennor.

The indie kids have been around for over 17 years, their “Intergalactic Sonic 7″s” compilation being my introduction to proper good music, with “Girl from Mars” still one of my favourite tracks of theirs. It’s great to see such a band innovating in different ways.

Tickets are on sale tomorrow, Thursday (27th August) for most dates, but as it’s not calling at many venues the best place to get your tickets is probably the box office of each venue (phone numbers where available below). Good luck, and enjoy.
