Patti Smith announces UK tour

It’s been over 35 years since her first album Horses was released, yet we’re still in love with iconic singer-songwriter Patti Smith as ever. At 65, Smith is still widely regarded as a cultural icon but also the poster girl for androgynous chic that so many have tried to emulate.

See her on tour at the following locations:


4th Newcastle O2 Academy

5th Glasgow O2 ABC

7th Manchester Academy

9th Leeds O2 Academy

10th Cambridge Corn Exchange

12th Brighton Dome

13th London Troxy

Tickets are £25 for all the shows except London where they are £27.50, and are available at and, or on the 24 Hour Ticket Hotline: 0844 811 005. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday April 20th, with a presale to Patti’s fans via her website on Wednesday April 18th.

These shows are in addition to the live dates in June which have already been announced :


25th Wolverhampton Civic

26th Cardiff Coal Exchange

28th Bath Forum

30th Hop Farm Festival, Tunbridge.

The shows follow the release of her new album ‘Banga’ released 4 June 2012.
