Former Grant Lee Buffalo front man to perform accoustically

Trending Now

Grant-Lee Phillips has announced that he will play two solo shows in the UK this April.

Starting his European Ballads Tour, Phillips will play Galsgow’s King Tut’s venue on April 25 and London’s The Scala on April 27.

Speaking about performing this time without a full band, Phillips says, “I have always found my acoustic shows to be rewarding in a unique way. The truth is, regardless of what path an album’s production may eventually take, for me the writing almost always begins with the voice and the guitar. That is my hammer and chisel, the most basic tools. I also love the freedom that simplicity allows. That is a big one for me. A song should be alive, open to new inspiration and interpretation. That is the beauty of going it alone, one man? six strings?”

Phillips’ fifth solo studio album ‘Strangelet’, was released last year, his first new material in seven years.

The full Ballads Tour dates are:

Glasgow, King Tuts (April 25)
London, Scala (27)
Dublin, Whelans (28)
Oslo, Rockefeller Music Hall (30)
Trondheim, Blaest (May 1)
Bergen, Hotel Norge (2)
Stavanger, Folken (3)
