Following the release of his critically lauded new album ‘Hearts That Strain’ last year, Jake Bugg is hitting the road this November for a string of acoustic headline shows and festival headline slots, and will be in Warrington on Monday 19th November. Tickets sold out within hours of them going on sale.
The shows continue Jake’s ‘Hearts That Strain’ tour, a series of solo acoustic shows, allowing the power of Jake’s songwriting to shine through in a live setting, attracting a glowing 4* review from The Times. The intensity and intimacy of the tour is captured perfectly in the video for latest single ‘In The Event Of My Demise’ – watch it below:
The Lighting Bolt singer started to play the guitar when he was 12 and shot to fame in 2012.
Since then the 24-year-old has had three top five albums – including his chart-topping double platinum selling debut – and has scooped awards from the likes of NME and Q Magazine.
‘Hearts That Strain’ saw Jake work with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach (who co-wrote and recorded ‘In The Event Of My Demise) and Grammy Award winning producers David Ferguson and Matt Sweeney in Nashville, while recording with some of the best players in the history of popular music.
