Ben Howard has announced a few new live shows for the end of the year, and the start of 2019 and Cardiff is one of them.
Ben Howard comes to Cardiff as part of his 2018/19 sell out UK tour this Winter
Ben Howard has released his first new music since his No.1 album I Forget Where We Were was released in 2014
Ben Howard is pleased to announce details of a winter headline tour.
Six new dates will go on sale on Friday 15th June via www.benhowardmusic.co.uk
Tickets for Motorpoint Arena Cardiff date also available from Box Office 029 2022 4488 and motorpointarenacardiff.co.uk
The shows take in arenas at Glasgow and Cardiff and two nights at the O2 Apollo, Manchester in December, and conclude with two nights at London O2 Academy Brixton in January 2019.
Later this week, Ben follows the release of his critically acclaimed top 4, third album, Noonday Dream, by taking it out live across the UK for his first headline shows on British shores since April 2015. All dates are long since sold out. The tour then carries on to Australia, Japan, Canada & the US.
Recorded in numerous studios between South West France and South West England (including the legendary Sawmills) Noonday Dream was written and produced by Ben.
The transformation and development in Ben’s writing from his successful debut LP back in 2011, to the immersive darkness of 2014’s I Forget Where We Were, and now on the cusp of another new sonic phase in Noonday Dream, could and should cement his status as one of the UK’s most gifted and unpredictable of artists.
Noonday Dream is out now through Island Records
