Newton Faulkner announces 2012 UK tour - tickets Friday 17th Feb
Newton Faulkner is currently working on his third studio album. After the adventures of his first two records, no one can be entirely certain what to expect.
Ostensibly an English folk singer-songwriter, Faulkner has stunned audiences with his creative approach and ultra-skilful musicianship, often using just his guitar and voice to conjure aural landscapes of unexpected depth and colour. His debut album, 2007's 'Hand Built by Robots', flew out of the blocks, turning double-Platinum and topping the UK album countdown. His guitar work suggested his hand may have indeed been built by robots.
That same hand was soon in danger after Faulkner shattered his wrist slipping on ice. Metal plates and numerous pins put Newton back together again and he went onto to record his second studio LP in 2009, aptly titled 'Rebuilt by Humans'. The adventures of Newton Faulkner and his wrist continued with the sophomore LP peaking at No 3 in the UK.
With his reputation as a live performer further enhanced by must-see festival performances and killer radio sessions, Faulkner has announced a spring UK tour which is likely to include new material, old favourites and even one or two of those mind-bending covers.
The 2012 UK tour dates announced so far kick off at the Old Fire Station in Bournemouth on 26th April, followed by Southend, London (Scala), Birmingham, Bristol, Norwich and lots more before the final UK date in Belfast on Saturday 26th May 2012. There is an Ireland date at Whelans in Dublin on 27th May.
We will have tickets available when they go on sale at 9am on Friday 17th February, priced from £16 for the UK shows and €22.50 for Dublin.
Faulkner's last UK headline tour, in 2010, sold out every night and ticket sales for the spring dates are expected to be brisk.
