Jack J Hutchinson is pleased to announce a raft of new tour dates for 2018, including visits to venues across the UK and Europe. It follows Hutchinson’s successful recent tour of Spain in support of his new album ‘Paint No Fiction’, which reached #1 in the Amazon blues chart and the iTunes blues top 5.
This summer, Hutchinson will play his first UK dates with his new band, featuring Felipe Amorim on drums and Lazarus Michaelides on bass. This includes headline shows in Reading, Derby and Bedford, plus various festival appearances.
Then, in the autumn, he will head out with Mike Ross and Troy Redfern for a run of ‘triple-header’ shows under the banner Space Blues Extravaganza, plus a number of special duo shows with Ross. The dates include sets in Sheffield, Bristol, Halifax, Gateshead, Eastbourne and Wales.
Commenting on the tour, Hutchinson said: “I’m really excited about heading out and playing tracks from my new album to audiences in areas of the UK that I haven’t necessarily visited too often in recent years. My new band are really on a roll after the recent European tour and we can’t wait to play to new audiences across the country.”
Explaining his hopes for the Space Blues Extravaganza, he adds: “I’ve always been a fan of multi guitar bands, whether that be the Allman Brothers, Black Crowes or Blackberry Smoke. Combining the three of us all on one stage will hopefully produce some magical results. It’s also an opportunity to write material with two of my favourite musicians. It’s gonna be interesting!”
To finish the year, Hutchinson will head back to Russia, before kicking off 2019 with an extensive tour of the Czech Republic. Full dates, venues and ticket info will be announced in due course.
