NICK J.D. HODGSON announces
UK & Ireland TOUR
Tickets on sale 9am Friday 9th February
‘A slew of fast and furious hit singles in the making’ – Sunday Express
‘Subtle, sophisticated songwriting’ – Evening Standard
‘A self-performed album of lushly simple songs that are hummable and uplifting’ – Mail on Sunday
“Oh My God I can’t believe it, I’m going on tour” – Nick
This was never the plan when Nick left Kaiser Chiefs in 2012. The plan was to stay at home writing and producing for other people. After five years of writing songs with everyone from Shirley Bassey to Rat Boy via Mark Ronson and John Newman, the plan changed.
His solo album Tell Your Friends came out on 26th Jan 2018 to great acclaim: album of the week in the Sunday Express, 4* in the Evening Standard and Dork Magazine (‘Hodgson’s innate genius shines brighter than ever before’), whilst The Sunday Times revelled in ‘this lovely album’s artless, low-fi approach’ and Q Magazine noted that Hodgson’s ‘ear for a winning melody remains acute’.
The April tour will be his first since the arena and festival headline slots with Kaiser Chiefs when Nick played drums and was the principal songwriter. He will be joined by his fabulous new band, including members of Howling Bells and The Dead 60s. Expect to hear the new album alongside a few indie anthems courtesy of his back catalogue.
