Brian Fallon returns to the UK in February

The Gaslight Anthem frontman is set to tour our shores next spring.

Brian Fallon has been a busy bee recording the follow-upto his debut solo album Painkillers which was released in March last year and saw him touring the UK solo with The Horrible Crowes for the first time after the announcement of The Gaslight Anthem’s indefinite hiatus.

And for all long-time fans of Fallon’s work the news are just getting better as Dave Hause will be joining him on tour in the UK. The two last toured together as part of Chuck Ragan’s legendary Revival Tour. Dave Hause just finished off a run of shows with Frank Iero & The Patience, and in March Dave played a string of headline shows in support of his third studio album Bury Me In Philly.

Since the release of his debut solo record, Brian Fallon has also released an EP with additional new tracks including title track Georgia and heartbreaking ballad Low Love.

Fallon’s inspirations rank from the late and great Tom Petty to fellow New Jersey musician, and rock icon, Bruce Springsteen who last year named Brian Fallon as his ideal stand-in should he ever need one. “To have a guy like that, who could pick literally anyone in the world, just to even have my name as the first one that came to his mind, that’s insane. I didn’t even believe it when I first saw it on Twitter, but then I went and listened to it, I just thought, this is insane, how did he say that?” Brian said about the news last year.

Here are those dates:
20 February – O2 Institute, Birmingham
21 February – O2 Ritz, Manchester
22 February – O2 ABC, Glasgow
23 February – KOKO, London
24 February – Rock City, Nottingham
25 February – SXW, Bristol
08 March – Boiler Shop, Newcastle
09 March – Beckett, Leeds

With The Howling Weather as his new backing band, we can be sure to expect a feast of mass sing-alongs and all the charming stage chat we’ve come to expect from the New Jersey musician (after all, going to see Brian Fallon live is therapy for you AND him).

Tickets go on general sale from 10:00 on Friday 27 October 2017 via Ticketmaster.co.uk.
