Arthur Lee's Love to Tour UK

Arthur Lee's Love to Tour UK

Arthur Lee's bandmates in the last incarnation of Love will be performing his songs on a UK tour this autumn.

Baby Lemonade formed the backbone of Lee's band both before and after his jail sentence in the late '90s. Now, Lee's widow, Diana Lee, has officially endorsed Baby Lemonade's UK tour, billed as 'A Celebration Of The Music Of Arthur Lee and Love'.

The band will play seventeen shows, kicking off in Swansea on October 16.

Following Arthur Lee's much publicised release from prison in 2001, Baby Lemonade were invited to perform as Love on sell out tours of sell-out tours of the UK, Europe, USA and Australia.

The band were part of Lee's re-creation of the classic Love album 'Forever Changes', which was filmed by the BBC at Glastonbury Festival and 'Later With Jools Holland' in 2003.

Baby Lemonade escorted Arthur Lee when he was awarded a 'Living Legend' award from NME in the following year.
