Gaz Coombes has announced a solo Manchester gig at Band on the Wall during his first live run of 2024.

The Manchester gig comes ahead of a huge run alongside Johnny Marr in April.

Gaz Coombes’ latest solo album Turn The Car Around debuted at number six in the UK Official Album Charts, marking his highest charting solo album to date.  It scooped a wave of positive press and fan support on the way to becoming one of the best reviewed albums of 2023 and completing an informal trilogy of albums with 2015’s Mercury and Ivor Novello nominated Matador and 2018’s World’s Strongest Man.

The album also marks the continued evolution of Gaz Coombes’ songwriting and sound.  “The one thing that has really nourished me in the last ten years is the idea of evolving as an artist, evolving my writing to keep moving forward,” Gaz says. “I run on vibe. I always have.”
