Carter USM Return For Two More Shows

Carter USM Return For Two More Shows

Carter USM have announced that they will play two further gigs this year, after saying they would 'quit' playing live after two one-off shows late last year.

Jim Bob and Fruitbat will now play Birmingham Carling Academy on November 21 and London's Brixton Academy on November 22.

After their 'farewell' shows in Glasgow and London in October and November last year, which were Carter's first shows in a decade, fans deluged the band with letters and emails asking for more.

The band then sent an email to the Carter USM mailing list asking for opinions, reportedly 97% responded positively.

The show in London coincides with Jim Bob's birthday and he hopes "the audience will be partying like it's 1992."

Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday (February 25) at 9am.
