If we’re being completely honest, it always annoys us when an artist announces a tour, only for it to be revealed that actually, they are only hitting three venues that are within a 50 mile radius of one another.
So its pleasing to be able to report that Alphabet Bands favourite Juan Zelada has announced a 25 date tour that covers the length and breadth of the UK.
Live, Zelada is full of vibrant energy, channelling some of Motown’s greats and behoving you to just get down and get funky to his big, big sound. If you are a fan, you should definitely go and check out a show if at all possible.
The tour, which will support the release of his debut album High Ceilings & Collarbones (out 6 February on Decca) kicks off in Northampton on 28 March and culminates on 29 April in sunny Brighton.
We’ll be featuring Juan a lot more next week with a two part interview and an album review so stay tuned for that. In the meantime you can buy tickets for the shows from this Friday (27 January) on Juan’s website and the full list of dates is below.
