Jake Bugg is to play five UK dates in October, including a major show at London’s Alexandra Palace – O2 Priority Tickets for that concert will be available from 9am on Wednesday May 14.
The shows are some of the largest Bugg has ever played. Following the UK run, the singer-songwriter will be supporting The Black Keys on their October/November tour of arenas in Canada and the USA.
A former US tourmate of Bugg’s, Albert Hammond Jr, recently predicted that Bugg will be a festival headliner one day. “What people see in him is just that he’s a talented guy with a great voice and as he figures himself out, I think that he’ll be able to headline,” said Hammond Jr. “He’s doing great and I don’t even need to say anything.”
Bugg is set to release a new four-track EP titled ‘Messed Up Kids’ on May 12.
Jake Bugg will play:
Cardiff Arena (October 5)
Wolverhampton Civic Hall (October 7)
Liverpool Echo 2 (October 18)
Bridlington Spa (October 20)
London Alexandra Palace (October 21)
