THE Charlatans have announced a gruelling, two-month tour of North America after they complete a summer of festival appearances and gigs across Europe and the UK.
Northwich’s most successful band are appearing in Romania, Croatia and Spain next month as well as playing to thousands at Guilfest in Surrey and the Stockton Riverside Fringe Festival.
In August, Tim Burgess, Martin Blunt, Tony Rogers, Jon Brookes and Mark Collins are staying in the UK as they play in West Yorkshire, Scotland and Cumbria as well as Summer Sundae Weekender in Leicestershire.
They will then head across the Atlantic to play a 22-date, two-month tour of America and Canada with standout gigs in Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto and New York.
The tour comes 12 months after the band’s last album, You Cross My Path, was released and is yet another sign that Mid Cheshire’s indie superstars are not planning to hang up their guitars yet.
After their first album, Some Friendly, was released in 1990, The Charlatans shot to fame and fortune, earning awards and acclaim both nationally and back home in Mid Cheshire.
Platinum and gold discs were hung on the walls at the former Omega Music store on Witton Walk and Charlie’s Cafe on Witton Street was featured on the front cover of the band’s greatest hits album, Melting Pot. The Charlatans’ bassist, Martin Blunt, still lives in Northwich and can be seen at local music events, including those being held at De Bees Music Bar, Winsford.For details of tickets and tour dates, visit the website www.thecharlatans.net.Melting Pot.
