Matt Schofield Spring UK Tour

Matt’s Spring UK tour starts on April 18. Here’s a run-down of the dates and venues.

The South
First date – April 18 – is at The Brook on the outskirts of Southampton, not far from the M27 and easily accesible. April 21 is the Gulbenkian Theatre in Canterbury (pictured) with its semi-in-the-round stage. This date includes a Meet The Artist Masterclass at 6.00pm when Matt will be talking about his approach to guitar playing and answering questions (separate booking required). April 22 and Matt is back in London’s ever popular 100 Club on Oxford Street.

South West & Mid
It’s Bristol on April 23 for a show at the recently opened Tunnels venue, centrally located opposite the museum and adjacent to Temple Mead’s railway station. After a detour via Germany Matt is at the famed venue The Stables (pictured) near Milton Keynes on April 27. The recent passing of founder and patron Johnny Dankworth will make this is a poignant visit. The Robin2 in Bilston, near Wolverhampton is on April 28. Bands love playing this venue. It’s a classic Rock ‘n Roll venue. Stand and enjoy

Going North
April 29 sees the band making a return visit to The Boardwalk followed on April 30 by Bronte Blues in Keighley, Yorkshire (this event is SOLD OUT). May 1 is The Cluny in Newcastle, a favourite haunt for the band. Then on May 2 it’s into Scotland for the band’s first club show north of the border at Glasgow’s The Ferry. May 3 – the Bank Holiday Monday – is The Brickyard in Carlisle. If you’re up in that part of the country why not come along and enjoy Matt plus two support acts. And finally on May 4 it’s Manchester and the Band on The Wall. This legendary venue (for 70 years a focal point of music in Manchester), re-opened in 2009 after an extensive refit.
