A ray of sunshine - Ray Lamontagne to bring the Pariah Dogs to Britain in 2011 (God Willin')

Posted: 19th October 2010

The man with the huskiest velvet tonsils is back in the UK next year for the first full-length tour in support of his new album, "God Willin' and the Creek Don't Rise". This leg will form part of a larger European tour which is due to start in February.

The confirmed dates start with Birmingham on 20th February and continue on to Bournemouth on 2nd March and then Dublin for two nights at the Olympia Theatre on 4th/5th March, via the usual big cities (oh and Oxford!). There are also a pair of Royal Festival Hall concerts in London on 21st/22nd. Tickets for all concerts go on sale this Friday priced at £22.50-£25 plus fees.

Lamontagne's band The Pariah Dogs will be joining him, in fact you may have witnessed his dulcet tones on Later With Jools Holland recently, singing "Old Before Your Time" from the new album, his fourth Top 40-placed long-player. This man is gaining in popularity - don't miss out on tickets.

If you fancy a listen to lead country-flavoured single "Beg, Borrow or Steal", check the embedded SoundCloud, above.
