Natalie Merchant has announced ‘An Evening With…’ summer tour of intimate and historic venues across the UK. The tour comprises 11 concerts, beginning in St Ives on July 13 and ending in Oxford on July 30, and is her most far-reaching of the country to date. More than three decades after her first UK concert with 10,000 Maniacs, and two years after her sold out Royal Albert Hall show marking the 20th anniversary of her solo debut Tigerlily, this will be a unique opportunity to see the celebrated singer play towns and cities chosen by Merchant herself and not usually included on her tours. She will be joined by her longtime guitarist Erik Della Penna, who has been playing with her for 20 years, performing material from the past 35 years of Merchant’s career. “I have always enjoyed performing in the UK but have rarely played outside of the major cities. There’s so much of Britain I’ve never seen; I expect this summer’s tour will satisfy my desire to explore those historic and scenic regions while meeting up with my fans who live there.” Tickets go on sale on Thursday March 29 at 10am.
- 8.00 pm. Doors open 7.30 pm
