Will Butler announces UK and Ireland solo tour
27 Jan 2015
Arcade Fire’s Will Butler has announced a five-date UK and Ireland solo tour for April 2015 with tickets on sale on Friday.
Will Butler has confirmed he will perform a series of live dates following news of his debut solo album in November. Starting with a gig at the Art School in Glasgow on 20 April, Will Butler will perform in Manchester, London, Birmingham and Dublin.
The live shows will be his first UK solo shows. In November Will Butler announced his debut album Policy, confirming its release for 16 March 2015. The album is to be released by Arcade Fire’s American Label, Merge Records.
Butler – who plays guitar, synthesizer, bass and percussion – played the majority of instruments on the album while bandmate Jeremy Gara offered his drumming expertise.
The album was recorded in Jimi Hendrix’s former living room at Electric Lady Studio. The building is the same place where Arcade Fire mixed some of their Reflektor record, which topped the charts in numerous countries including the UK and US.
