Having stormed The Deaf Institute back in May, Alabama Shakes have announced plans to return to Manchester to start their upcoming UK tour. The Southern-rock quartet will arrive at Manchester Academy on November 12th before heading out to Glasgow and London. This four date trek will see the band play two London dates and comes just a couple of months after they perform two September shows in Oxford and Brighton.
Having released their soulful debut Boys & Girls earlier this year, Alabama Shakes have been winning UK audiences over with their refreshing blend of Americana-blues and rock. Its a trait that has attracted the attention of none other than Jack White who quickly snagged up the band back in November and set them to work on producing a series of singles for his very own label Third Man Records. Tickets for Alabama Shakes November tour go on sale on Friday June 29th at 9am.
UK Tour Dates:
O2 Academy Oxford 2 (September 4)
Brighton Concorde 2 (5)
Manchester Academy (November 12)
Glasgow Barrowlands (13)
London Coronet (16)
London HMV Forum (17)
