Jack Peñate announces UK tour

Jack Penate

Story by Jack Foley

JACK Peñate is fast becoming an irresistible force. His recent, debut release for XL Recordings – the single Spit At Stars – wowed many and showcased to the nation a genuine, exciting raw talent for the first time.

Its accompanying video carved up TV plays a plenty and he got immense support from Radio 1 and XFM (it was made Jo Whiley’s Single of the Week and was never off Zane Lowe’s deck).

Not one to hang around, his next release, Torn On The Platform, is out on June 25, 2007, and is already a firm favourite with his fans and a highlight of his encapsulating live set – a set that has reached well beyond his London confines with his last touring schedule reaching in excess of 60 sold out dates in as many days.

As Jack applies the finishing touches to his debut album, he and his band are heading back out on tour in June (see below), including a night in London in June.

The dates are…
16 – Glasgow King Tuts
17 – Leeds Cockpit
18 – Nottingham Rescue Rooms
20- Liverpool Academy 2
26 – Birmingham Barfly
27 – London Scala
28 – Manchester Academy 3
29 – Brighton Concorde
30 – Bristol Thekla
1 – Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms

Tickets cost £7.50 (except London, £8.50) and are available from all the usual outlets.
