Manu Chao Adds Third London Date To Tour

Manu Chao, playing with his band, the Radio Bemba Sound System have added a third London date for their forthcoming UK tour.

Chao will now play Brixton Academy on October 2, after selling out shows on October 4 and 5.

These Autumn shows are the first time the French/Spanish muiscian has performed in the UK since 2002, and he will use the shows to promote material from his first album in six years 'La Radiolina' which is released on September 17.

Rated 5-stars in the last Uncut, and described as a 'manifesto of globalista politics, maverick beats and gipsy soul', reviewer Nigel Williamson says it's Manu Chao's 'Exodus-style crossover.'

Catch the musical genius at the following dates:

London, Brixton Academy (October 2/4/5)
Bristol, Academy (7)
Manchester, Apollo (8)
Glasgow, Academy (10)
Nottingham, Rock City (11)
