MULTI-platinum, multi-Brit and Grammy-nominated British singer-songwriter David Gray has announced a 12-date UK and European White Ladder: The 20th Anniversary Tour, to celebrate the album’s 20-year anniversary.

The dates will see Gray perform White Ladder with all the original band members and with all the original equipment to recreate the record in its entirety, plus a set of the greatest hits.

Commencing at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena on March 20, 2020, the tour will include London’s The 02 on March 26 and Dublin’s 3 Arena on April 2.

Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday, October 11. Fans can have access to presale tickets on Wednesday, October 9 by pre-ordering products from the re-mastered collection here

An expanded 20th anniversary edition of White Ladder will be released on 2xCD, 4xLP, and digital formats. This will include a special re-mastered edition of the iconic album plus White Ladder-era previously unreleased rarities, B-sides and demos.

Physical versions will be accompanied by an extensive booklet with writings by Gray about the whole White Ladder experience – from the people involved, to the stories behind the songs and memorable shows.

The newly-remastered original album will also be released on 2LP white-colored vinyl, CD and digital, available here.

This is the first time White Ladder has ever been pressed on vinyl.

Talking about the announcement, Gray said: “It’s the 20th anniversary of White Ladder, a unique record with its own remarkable history. Jammed full with big, open hearted songs and flooded with a raw emotional energy.

“It’s an album that came from nowhere to steal the hearts of millions all over the world, completely transforming my life in the process. Twenty years on and it feels like White Ladder is just as alive for people now as it was back then – so to celebrate this milestone, I will be releasing a special anniversary version of the album and assembling all the original band members with all the original equipment, in order to take White Ladder out on the road and recreate the record in its entirety.”
