The Good, The Bad and The Queen have announced a six date UK tour including a Manchester gig at the Albert Hall in April.
The group, comprised of Damon Albarn, Paul Simonon, Tony Allen and Simon Tong, released their second album Merrie Land in November. The album followed an eleven-year haitus. Merrie Land was greeted with critical acclaim. A run of sold-out live shows then followed before the announcement of six shows in April including Manchester’s Albert Hall and London’s Palladium.
Produced by Tony Visconti and The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Merrie Land contains 10 new songs – written during the current period in which the UK is preparing to leave the European Union – creating a reluctant good-bye letter, a series of observations and reflections on ‘Britishness’ in 2018.
