City and Colour announces massive UK tour (2014)
Story by Jack Foley
CITY and Colour is set to embark upon a huge headline tour of the UK and Europe in support of his latest album, The Hurry and The Harm.
The album debuted Top 40 status in multiple UK and European territories, as well as hitting the #1 spot upon release in City and Colour’s native Canada.
With an arena tour of the UK as the support act for Biffy Clyro, and an intimate show at London’s Bush Hall, that sold-out-in-minutes, to add to an already impressive list of accolades, 2014 is surely set to see the star of City and Colour rise even higher.
Dallas Green’s new touring band includes Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, Dead Weather) on bass, Dante Schwebel (Hacienda, Dan Auerbach) on guitar, Doug MacGregor (Constantines) on drums and Matt Kelly on pedal steel guitar and keys.
Tickets will go on general sale from 10am on August 30, with 02 customers being allowed exclusive access to a 48 hour pre-sale for the Academy shows from the same time on August 28.
This flurry of dates are anticipated to be a rapid sell-out.
