SHOW RESCHEDULED FROM APRIL 26 TO SEPTEMBER 27, 2014
A Note from Justin:
GOOD PEOPLE OF AMERICA!
Due to unforeseen immigration/visa issues entirely beyond the control of everyone involved I am sadly forced to re-schedule my entire US tour. The dates are now being re-booked for September ’14.
I have never cancelled a single show before so I am extremely disappointed and embarrassed that my hand has been forced here and I humbly apologise to everyone who has bought tickets, made travel plans or booked a day off work.
I was looking forward to these gigs immensely and had been working, if not hard, then reasonably diligently to put a great little show together for y’all. But I shall be with you eventually in the fall so all is not lost. I am told that tickets will be vaild for any rescheduled dates or you can contact your venue for a refund. By that time I might even have practiced those songs folk are constantly requesting that I claim not to remember. See you later in the year. Thank you for your patience and happy Easter.
About Justin Currie
As singer and main songwriter in Del Amitri, formed in Glasgow in 1983, Justin Currie wrote many of their biggest hits including ‘Roll To Me’, ‘Always The Last To Know’, and ‘Nothing Ever Happens’. During their long and distinguished career Del Amitri released four Top 10 albums, including Waking Hours (1989), which sold over a million copies in the UK alone.
In 2013 Currie released his critically acclaimed fourth solo album Lower Reaches, which was recorded in Austin, Texas, with producer Mike McCarthy (Craig Finn (The Hold Steady), Spoon, Patty Griffin, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead). The album is the first release on Currie’s own label Endless Shipwreck, through Ignition Records.
Currie will re-unite with Del Amitri for their first tour in over a decade in January 2014.
What Other People Have Been Saying...
“Lower Reaches reminds us that whether the idiom is Badfinger-esque powerpop (I Hate Myself For Loving You), or spry Dillard & Clark-like country (On My Conscience), Currie’s graceful melodies and info-laden beauty and/or bile-buoyed couplets are up to the job” **** Mojo
“A rich atmosphere of Americana…..dallying on the outskirts of John Grant pop grandeur” – Uncut
“Currie is so in tune with his muse that he… gives a masterclass in songwriting that is all his own work.” – The Independent
