Great news for London fans of Patrick Wolf - the innovative performer has confirmed a large-scale show on the city's South Bank next spring. The Queen Elizabeth Hall will host a concert on 6th April 2013, a few weeks after Wolf's previously-announced UK tour winds up.
Set to be a show on the grandest of scales, given the venue's space, tickets will be in huge demand. We will have them on sale from 9am on Wednesday 21st November, priced at £17.50/ £22.50.
The earlier UK leg of the European tour also includes Oxford on 4th February, followed by Norwich, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Wolverhampton (of course) and Southampton on the 13th - all on sale now.
In addition to this and his tour next year (details below), Wolf will be performing a short set at an in-store signing session at Rough Trade East near Brick Lane on 5th December. It's free but it WILL be busy - you'll need to have visited the store in advance to pick up a wristband when buying the new Patrick Wolf album "Sundark and Riverlight".
For the past decade Wolf, christened Patrick Apps, has been 'pushing boundaries' and 'crossing barriers', steering his flamboyant ship from port to port, unleashing a mix of electronic, folk and tech-pop that has, for the most part, captivated a loyal legion of fans. Last year's "Lupercalia" vaulted Wolf into the Top 40 but, typical of the man, he's eschewed the restrictions of a major-label for his most recent project.
"Sundark and Riverlight" is a stripped-back round-up of previously issued songs and brand new tracks and has been the topic of his most recent shows since its release earlier in the autumn. Already his most imminent shows have almost sold out - just Glasgow on 25th November and Brighton on 11th December remain available - so next year's schedule should follow suit.
