Story by Jack Foley
BEN Howard has added a couple of new UK shows to his ongoing European tour.
The double Brit Award winner will play Blackpool’s Empress Ballroom on June 11 and London’s Hammersmith Apollo on June 13.
The London date follows a previously-announced Hammersmith gig on June 12, which has already sold out. Tickets for the second London date are available now for £25.
The singer-songwriter is also set to play a number of UK and European festivals this summer, including Loch Ness’s Rockness Festival on June 9, the Isle of Wight Festival on June 15, Phoenix Park in Dublin on July 14 and Wales’s Green Man Festival on August 18.
Howard won the British Breakthrough and British Male awards at this year’s Brit Awards, prompting his single Only Love to enter the top 10.
