Seasick Steve announces autumn 2011 UK dates - tickets on sale Friday 29th July
Frequently, a love-at-first-sight experience with a new musician or band is accompanied by an overwhelming 'where have you been all my life?' One look at 2007 overnight sensation Seasick Steve and it was more a case of 'where have you been all your life??'
In short, he'd been having the kind of life that people write songs about. Born in California during World War II, the product of a broken marriage, Steven Wold hit the road in his teens and lived hand-to-mouth for many years, hopping freight trains to get around and picking up work wherever he could and sleeping rough whenever he had to, which was often.
He broke into the music scene as a producer in the sixties and worked with some big names (including Janis Joplin) before continuing his musical odyssey into Europe. Via Paris and Norway and now 'Seasick Steve', he found his way onto Jools Holland's annual 'Hootenanny' show at the end of 2006.
In 2007, aged 66, he won the MOJO Award for Best Breakthrough Act, going on to appear at Reading, Leeds and Glastonbury. In fact, that year he played more festivals than any other artist; an all too scarce and perhaps even old-fashioned work ethic and yet another reason to love the man.
Seasick Steve is the story of his life; it's written on his craggy face, combed through his ash grey beard and in every note and word of his thoroughbred bluesy rock.
As popular as ever, Seasick Steve released his fifth studio album, 'You Can't Teach an Old Dog New Tricks' in May. It was his third gold record and top ten LP in the UK, where Steve is most popular.
Audiences here are being rewarded with three new dates announced for October, beginning at the Hammersmith Apollo on the 8th, followed by shows at the Manchester Apollo (10th) and Glasgow Academy (11th).
We will have tickets for all three dates when they go on sale at 9AM on Friday 29th July, priced £21 (£23.50 for London).
Ahead of the autumn dates, Steve has a busy schedule at various festivals and events including Marlay Park, Dublin, supporting Rodrigo y Gabriela (31st July), the Stockton Weekender 2011 (5th August), Fairport's Cropredy Convention (12th August) and the Reading and Leeds Festivals (27th/28th August).
We have tickets available now for most events, except Saturday day passes for Reading, which have sold out.
