NEWS: Imelda May announces UK Autumn Tour

Imelda May, recently returned from a 20 date US tour and currently fully submersed into festival season (including three sets at Glastonbury), announces a new UK tour this autumn.

Since 2008 she has toured consistently –  winning over audiences throughout the UK, and so far this summer has appeared at Glastonbury, Hop Farm and Cornbury festivals.  Imelda’s four piece band comprises of the following musicians: Darrel Higham (Guitar), Al Gare (Bass), Steve Rushton (Drums) and Dave Priseman (Trumpet/Guitar/ Percussion).

Announcing her biggest UK tour to date, culminating in her first headline show at the prestigious HMV Forum Kentish Town, London, Imelda May’s live show is not to be missed –

VIDEO: Imelda May “Psycho”

Imelda May’s debut album “Love Tattoo” is at the top of my ‘favourite album’ pile.  It has been from the day I first heard it.  Having seen the fifties inspired Irish bombshell live on several occasions, her effortless energy and charged charisma are a more than winning formula.  So, to see May return with new material is beyond exciting.  “Psycho” may be a move away from her hillbilly debut, her winning formula altered to ensure mainstream success, but it is done without losing integrity or her loyal and growing fanbase.
