Mott The Hoople announce UK tour
Mott The Hoople will tour the UK in November, playing five shows.
Ian Hunter, Verden Allen, Mick Ralphs and Overend Watts will be joined by Martin Chambers of The Pretenders in place of Dale ‘Buffin’ Griffin, who’s too ill to appear.
It’s the band’s first shows since a set of reunion appearances in London in 2009. It was the first time the original lineup had gathered for 35 years, and as a result, two planned appearances at the Hammersmith Apollo were extended to five, plus a warm-up show in Wales and a charity concert in Scotland.
The following year the band were the subject of a documentary movie, The Ballad Of Mott The Hoople.
Frontman Hunter released his 20th solo album, When I’m President, last September.
Tickets go on sale on Friday.
