Dan Reed Network have announced four concerts in the UK this June. Tickets go on sale Friday February25th at 10am from www.danreed-network.com/tour. Dates include – Waterloo, Blackpool (June 16), The Welly, Hull (June 17), The Dreadnought, Bathgate (June 18), O2 Ritz, Manchester (June 19).
Says Dan Reed, “As soon as we were made aware that our shows with Reckless Love were going to be rescheduled again it became imperative to find a way to get back on the road as soon as possible, we have an album that we know is going to deliver and we are desperate to get out there and play it live for everyone! We’re delighted that we were able to arrange these headlines shows around the album’s release date so we can celebrate that properly with all of you.”
The tour will see the band take in four UK dates including a special guest performance at the HRH AOR festival at 02 Ritz in Manchester on Sunday June 19th, before heading to Hamburg for an album release party show hosted by their record label, Drakkar Entertainment.
“The ongoing instability caused by the pandemic has made it impossible for Dan Reed Network and Reckless Love to travel to the UK and throughout Europe,” says Dan.
Dan adds, “This decision has not been made lightly. We were determined to give these shows as much of a chance of happening as possible, however it is now clear that the world is not yet in a secure enough position for us to be confident about traversing countries with shows unaffected by Covid. There is the added caveat that when we return to play our first shows in what now will be well over two years, we want to do this in true DRN fashion and that means freely interacting with those who want to come and hang out with the band post shows. Our live performances are fuelled by our interactions with you all, before, during and after our shows!”
The band’s new album Let’s Hear It For The King, originally slated for March 4th release, has been moved to the new release date of Friday June 17th. Pre-order the album from www.danreednetwork.tmstor.es.
To coincide with the new album release date the band are pleased announce that they will be performing at the HRH AOR festival in Manchester in June as well as hosting an album launch party in Hamburg in conjunction with their record label Drakkar Entertainment. There will be further announcements soon for the June release so please watch this space!
Finally, the shows planned for Norway & Belgium have been unable to be rescheduled to coincide with these new tour dates and as a result all tickets previously purchased will be eligible for a refund.
