Charles Esten has announced a return to the UK including a gig at The Lowry Theatre in Salford. The date is one of seven UK shows he has announced.
Speaking about his return to the UK and his long history with audiences on these shores, Charles Esten said, “Some of my earliest musical performances were way back in 1991 playing Buddy Holly in the hit West End musical ‘BUDDY’. That’s when I began my love affair with UK audiences who – quite literally – danced in the aisles. Four years ago, I was pretty heartbroken when the first COVID lockdowns meant that my debut C2C O2 Arena headline performance was to be cancelled, and ever since that day, I have been dreaming of and praying for a return to the UK. That dream first came true in October when I was blessed to be a part of the amazing Nashville Reunion Tour. Then, as that was successfully wrapping up, I received the confirmed schedule for my own return solo tour. And I damn near cried. I am chuffed, over the moon, and thrilled to bits to be returning to play my music in the country that for two magical years, I got my start in and called my home.”
Ahead of the tour, Charles Esten will release his independent album Love Ain’t Pretty. The album has been more than 10 years in the making, starting when he arrived in Nashville to play Deacon Claybourne on the hit show Nashville.
The 14 track album was put co-written with the likes of Eric Pasley, Jon Nite, Gary Burr and Leslie Satcher. Marshall Altman has produced the album.
