Return of the 50ft Queenie - PJ Harvey announces one-off UK show as part of short 2011 European tour

Posted: 12th October 2010

It's been a while since we mentioned PJ Harvey on our pages, yet here she is with news of a very short European jaunt in February next year.

The very private icon will play just one UK date on 27th February and it's going to be at the London Troxy. Tickets go on sale on Friday at 9AM priced at £30 plus fees. As well as London, she is also performing in Brussels, Paris and Berlin - so if you can't get into the London gig, there's always a quick hop-over by Eurostar or an airline (bit pricey mind).

The accompanying band will consist of Mick Harvey, John Parish and Jean-Marc Butty. Parish and Polly have collaborated plenty of times before, including 2009's well-received "A Woman a Man Walked By" which also featured Butty on drums. No details have yet been released with regards to new material appearing in 2011 (but it's pretty 'odds-on').
