Badly Drawn Boy to tour debut album ‘The Hour Of Bewilderbeast’


Badly Drawn Boy will tour his Mercury Prize winning debut album ‘The Hour Of Bewilderbeast‘ this summer on its 15th birthday.

Opening at St Georges in Bristol on July 24th, the celebratory tour continues on to Birmingham, London, Glasgow, Gateshead, Leeds and Manchester before the month is out. A pre-sale of tickets starts tomorrow (April 22nd) for those who follow Mr. Gough on Songkick. For everyone else they’re available from April 24th.

‘The Hour Of Bewilderbeast’ built on the momentum of a series of EP releases before its release in June 2000. Led by blissful hit single ‘Disillusion‘, the LP picked up that year’s Mercury Prize ahead of rivals such as Coldplay, Doves and Richard Ashcroft.

Tour dates:

Bristol St Georges (24)
Birmingham Town Hall (25)
London Barbican (26)
Glasgow Oran Mor (28)
Gateshead Sage 2 (29)
Leeds City Varieties Music Hall (30)
Manchester Bridgewater Hall (31)
