Tom Waits announces first UK date in 17 years


Story: Jack Foley

TOM Waits plays at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, on Tuesday, November 23, 2004 - the singer’s first UK concert since his appearances at the same theatre in November 1987.

The London show is part of an eight-date European tour that follows the release of Waits’ Real Gone album on Monday, October 4.

Tickets for the Apollo concert go on sale on Friday, September 10, and are available from the Ticket Hotline, on 0870 606 3400, as well as Stargreen (020 7734 8932) and usual agencies. Prices will be subject to credit card and booking fees.

The tour - Waits’ first in Europe since 2000 - will also include shows in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

His new touring band features Marc Ribot (guitar), Larry Taylor (bass) and Brain Mantia (drums), the same musicians who also appear on Real Gone, which has been written and produced by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan, his longtime collaborator.

The 15-track CD unveils Waits’ new musical hybrid, crafted from primal blues, Jamaican rock-steady grooves, African and Latin rhythms and melodies and what Waits calls 'cubist funk'.

The album is released on Anti Records.
