Wire set to branch out with more Nov/ Dec 2011 Red Barked Tree shows - tickets on sale now
Fast approaching their 35th year as a band, Messrs Newman, Gotobed, Lewis and extra 'touring' member Simms show no signs of slowing down. Wire, ladies and gentleman, are wired and ready for more live shows during the autumn, offering more towns and cities a chance to hear new songs from the 2011 album, "Red Barked Tree".
Released in January, the album has been a slow burner amongst critics and fans, yet repeated listening reveals a subtle mixture of the barbed and the beautiful, described in our 4-star review as "a veritable cross-section of many Wire facets already previously revealed on preceding albums, yet they remain engaging, spirited and essential after all this time. And they still cut it live".
Those previous facets mentioned above, include the brash delights of early albums like "Pink Flag" and the synth subtleties on "A Bell is a Cup", all rolled into the new album. Live, they positively simmer and you'd be nuts to miss them, this time around.
First stop on their 3-week jaunt is Birmingham on 15th November, followed by Manchester, Edinburgh and many more, including London's XOYO on the 23rd, until Sheffield on 3rd December. Tickets for all shows are on sale now, priced at £14 (or £17 for London). It's worth noting that Wire haven't played some of these towns since time began (well, a good few years at least) - Exeter and Cardiff certainly spring to mind.
