James Bay Announces Hold Back The River Tour

Share Button
Following a year of impressive support slots (Kodaline, Tom Odell, John Newman), a number of headline shows and acclaimed festival performances, James Bay is set to head out on a headline UK tour, playing the biggest venues he’s played in the UK to date.

Having released his second and latest EP ‘Let It Go’ and a début album on the way, James has been perfecting his craft whilst playing to crowds globally over recent months.

His mellow, folk pop sound is acclaimed for its contrite lyrics, guitar driven melodies and powerful vocals, and we can probably expect to see some full band performances across this tour, lifting his sound and overall live presence up a few levels.

Norwich four piece, Port Isla are set to support James across the entire tour, a band Bay described as “one of my favourite new bands”.

Catch James Bay and Port Isla at the following dates:

November 2014:

14 – MANCHESTER Academy 3

16 – GLASGOW Art School

17 – DUBLIN Academy

18 – LEEDS Brudenell

21 – BRIGHTON The Haunt
