Joseph Arthur and the Lonely Astronauts for July 2009 UK tour

Posted: 26th May 2009

Singer-songwriter, artist and poet Joseph Arthur has announced that he and his band The Lonely Astronauts will play a short UK tour in July, following a string of French dates.

The five-date tour will start in Bristol on Sunday 19th July, before Joseph heads to Leeds on 20th July, Manchester on 21st July, Nottingham on 22nd July, before finishing the series at London's Bush Hall on 23rd July. The dates will see Joseph Arthur in more intimate settings, compared to usual haunts of the Shepherds Bush Empire and the like.

Arthur's vast discography has been critically-acclaimed since his first album Big City Secrets was released back in 1997, and the most recent tour announcement follows on from his recent 'online-only' download album Live From Montreal. His last physical release was 2008 album Temporary People, which was preceded by four separate EP releases.

Tickets are on sale now from £12-16 dependent on venue.
