Dave Davies to play first UK gig in 13 years

Dave Davies has announced his first UK gig in 13 years.

The Kinks guitarist will play London's Barbican on April 11, to 'celebrate the 50th anniversary of the revolutionary guitar sound that changed rock'n'roll'.

Tickets go on sale on Friday (February 28) at 9am.
