Ray Davies set for December 2009 UK dates and new run of 'Come Dancing'

Posted: 8th July 2009

Following a couple of appearances last month (notably at the Kenwood House on June 27th), The Kinks frontman and singer-songwriter, Ray Davies, is to play a few dates this December.

On June 15th , Davies released his new solo project in the shape of a choral album, 'The Kinks Choral Collection', featuring a selection of the Kinks' tunes ('Waterloo Sunset', 'Shangri-La', 'Johnny Thunder', etc...) backed by the Crouch End Festival Chorus, with whom he's been collaborating since 2007, and will be touring in the cities of Cambridge (at the Corn Exchange) on December 11th , Birmingham (at the Symphony Hall) on December 12th and London (at the Hammersmith Apollo) on December 19th.

In the meantime, Davies will be busy working on upcoming new run of his award-winning musical, Come Dancing, based on his 1983 hit single, which following a successful season at the Theatre Royal Stratford East last autumn, will tour the UK as of next January, kicking-off at the Churchill in Bromley.

Tickets for Davies' three gigs, go on sale tomorrow (Thursday 9th July) at 9AM.
