HomeNews DayNEWS DAYThe Enemy Singer Tom Clarke Announces First-Ever Solo Acoustic Tour February 10, 2017 NEWS DAY Credit: Coventry Telegraph & The Enemy The Enemy lead singer Tom Clarke has announced his first ever solo tour and he is going to perform a string of acoustic shows across the UK in June and July. The Coventry rock band announced they would part ways back in April. The band performed their final shows in Coventry last year with a string of dates at The Empire with Tom co-owns and now the singer is set to take to the stage once more. Tom says he is inviting fans to some very intimate shows to celebrate the band’s songs from the debut, stripped back to their bare essentials and played acoustically. Tom adds: “The idea is to play all of the songs from that first record as they were written acoustically, in an up close and personal environment with the people who love them, as well as playing a few tracks which The Enemy never really performed live because they didn’t fit into the electric sets.” These gigs will be tiny so tickets are going to be extremely limited. Tickets go on-sale Friday February 3, at 9am through ticketweb.co.uk. Tom says: “There won’t be another ten year anniversary of We’ll Live & Die In These Towns and it’s an album that means the world to me so to go out and play the songs unplugged as they were originally written, feels like the right way to go.” Full tour dates 17 June – Nottingham, Rescue Rooms 18 June – Cardiff, Globe 19 June – Bristol, Fleece 21 June – Leeds, Brudenell Social Club 22 June – Reading, Sub89 23 June – Southampton, Engine Rooms 26 June – Birmingham, O2 Institute 28 June – Stoke, Keele SU 30 June – Glasgow, ABC 1 July – Newcastle, O2 Academy 2 July – Liverpool, Arts Club 4 July – Manchester, Gorilla 6 July – London, O2 Academy Islington 7 July – Sheffield, O2 Academy Beatrice Fridrikaite Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window) Related Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
