Lightning Seeds have today announced a major UK tour for this autumn performing tracks from their incredible back catalogue. The tour will see the Liverpudlians visit iconic venues all over the UK including London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire and a hometown show at Liverpool’s Eventim Olympia. They will also be joined with very special guest Badly Drawn Boy on all dates except Brighton.

Lightning Seeds are the brainchild of writer, singer, guitarist and producer Ian Broudie. Ian originally emerged from the post punk Liverpool music scene of the late seventies playing in the band “Big in Japan” which in turn led to him producing several bands starting with Echo & The Bunnymen. In 1989 Ian as Lightning Seeds released debut album ‘Cloudcukooland’ featuring the hit single ‘Pure’. Second album ‘Sense’ followed before the release of the seminal album ‘Jollification’ in 1994 which has so far sold nearly 1 million copies.

In 1996 the iconic single ‘3 Lions’ for the England football team topped the charts many times over. That same year ‘Dizzy Heights’ and 1999’s ‘Tilt’ were released to critical acclaim before Ian returned to his producer roots. Ian soon began to develop hit albums for the likes of The Coral, The Zutons and many more.

Badly Drawn Boy aka Damon Gough first gained major acclaim by critics and audiences alike with his debut album ‘The Hour Of Bewilderbeast’ in 2000 which went on to win the Mercury Prize. Badly Drawn Boy has since release eight studio albums including 2020’s lauded ‘Banana Skin Shoes’. He will be performing classics and old favourites from his eclectic career.

Preceding the UK tour, Lightning Seeds will be performing at festivals across Europe. All details at https://lightningseeds.co.uk/live

Badly Drawn Boy will be appearing as very special guest on all dates except Brighton.
