Wildhearts extend anniversary tour
The Wildhearts have added six more shows to their tour marking the 20th anniversary of debut album Earth Vs The Wildhearts.
In addition to the four shows already completed in Glasgow, Manchester, Nottingham and Wolverhampton, they’ll appear in Bournemouth, London, Bristol, Leicester, Newcastle and Leeds in June.
The extension comes after the shows – featuring Ginger, CJ, Jon Poole and Ritch Battersby – received rave reviews. Frontman Ginger has said he’s never enjoyed Wildhearts performances more.
If the format follows the first run, they’ll perform all 11 tracks of the 1993 album followed by an audience-participation set in which the crowd cheers as two song titles are held up on placards, and the track that gets the loudest shout is performed.
