American singer-songwriter Nicole Atkins has announced a European tour that will kick off in October this year, including six UK dates in Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Bristol and London. Feted by Bruce Springsteen, Atkins’ European tour follows a series of shows supporting Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds in North America.
The new album Slow Phaser has been praised by critics and fans alike. “I wanted to make something that no one’s ever heard before,” she says, “including myself.” Made up of eleven tracks that Atkins is calling ‘neon noir tour de force of hi-def late-night pop’, this record marks her most ingenious and indelibly modern collection to date.
Aktins’ full UK shows are as follows:
Oct 16 Gullivers Manchester
Oct 17 King Tuts, Glasgow
Oct 18 Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh
Oct 21 The Cluny 2 Newcastle
Oct 23 Louisiana, Bristol
Oct 24 The Lexington, London
