Hugh Cornwell is touring the UK this month. The show consists of two sets, the first is his new album Hooverdam and the second a complete performance of Rattus in its entirety. Smart move! That’ll pack the punters in.
I hope he brings a keyboard player in, otherwise it won’t work nearly as well.
I saw Hugh at Rebellion 2008 and he was surprisingly good, but then rather smartly he played a punk set, unlike The Stranglers who headlined an earlier one and didn’t and consequently bombed.
The dates are:
13th NOV – NEWCASTLE, O2 Academy
14th NOV – GLASGOW, ABC
20th NOV – LONDON, O2 Academy Islington
21st NOV – OXFORD, O2 Academy
27th NOV – MANCHESTER, Academy 1
28th NOV – BIRMINGHAM, O2 Academy
