Spector for 2012 UK tour - tickets on sale now

Posted: 23rd November 2011

Spector are having quite a week. It was recently announced that the London-based power pop five-piece would be supporting Florence and the Machine on her eagerly anticipated March tour - a support billing as desirable as any just now. Tickets go on sale on Friday; the same night Spector appear in the feature-length edition of BBC2's flagship/only remaining music show, 'Later Live... with Jools Holland'.

As if that wasn't enough to be going on with, they were even featured on Eastenders earlier in the week, playing on market legend Winston's stall radio.

On last night's taster edition of 'Jools', Spector were in illustrious company. An uncharacteristically stellar line-up saw performances from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Björk, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Michael Kiwanuka, soul's newest next big thing.

Spector more than held their own with an assured performance of 'What You Wanted' which suggests there is much more to come from singer Fred Macpherson and his band. In Macpherson's distinct vocal, part-Edwyn Collins, part-Jarvis Cocker, Spector's rich, hook-filled sound is all their own.

The tour kicks off in Newcastle on 14th February, followed by gigs in Glasgow, Leeds, York, Manchester (Deaf Institute), Liverpool and more, before the final date in Brighton on 25th February 2012, with support coming from David's Lyre for most gigs.

We have tickets available now, priced just £6. Bargain.

Along with The Horrors, Spector will also be supporting Florence and the Machine on the March tour. We will have tickets available for all dates when they go on sale at 9AM on Friday 25th November, priced £29.50.

Ahead of a busy winter, Spector are also playing in London (Bethnal Green) on 5th December. Tickets are on sale now and are, again, just six quid.
