Story by Jack Foley

BRETT Anderson will play a short UK tour in September, following the release of his new album Wilderness on September 1.

The tour will be similar in format to the one-off date Brett played at London’s Mermaid Theatre in July, where he was joined onstage by cellist Amy Langley to perform the new album and highlights from his back-catalogue.

The Mermaid Theatre show received rave reviews in the broadsheets and an ecstatic response from fans.

For the September tour Brett has tried to choose unorthodox venues for his shows outside London.

The September tour dates are:
25 – Leeds City Varieties
26 – Manchester Royal Northern College Of Music
27 – Glasgow Oran Mor
29 – Brighton St George’s Church
30 – London Shepherd’s Bush Empire

Tickets are on sale from July 31 and the new album, Wilderness, is released on BA Songs on September 1 but will be available from independent record stores from August 14.
