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'.

Davies suffered a serious stroke in 2004, but was recovered enough by 2006 to play guitar, walk and talk. Recent years have seen increased talk of a possible Kinks reunion, but nothing concrete has yet materialised.

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

Uncut is now available as a digital edition! Download here on your iPad/iPhone and here on your Kindle Fire or Nook.
