As THE SLOW READERS CLUB look forward to their mammoth UK tour beginning this weekend, today the Manchester four-piece are pleased to reveal plans for some very special end-of UK-Tour celebrations.
Bringing their enormous 32-date run to a fittingly epic finale, the Readers will head for home to close-out their tour with an unmissable final gig at Manchester’s intimate Gorilla venue on 11th April 2019.
At this special homecoming show, the band will also exclusively launch their own signature dry-hopped lager: “Slow Brew”. Assured to be as crisp, palpable and endlessly enjoyable as the band’s own dulcet sounds, ‘Slow Brew’ is an exciting new collaboration with Signature Brew, the East London brewery who have also brewed limited edition beers for rock royalty including Mastodon, alt-J, Mogwai and Frank Turner. Watch the mouth watering trailer for ‘Slow Brew’ here.
Tickets for The Slow Readers Club End-of-UK-Tour celebration event at Gorilla will be available via the band’s Official Website at 12.00pm today (1 March) and expected to sell fast, so fans are advised to hurry to avoid disappointment: https://www.theslowreadersclub.co.uk
After a string of SOLD OUT shows in the capacious halls of London, Glasgow and a momentous performance to over 3000 people at the Manchester O2 Apollo before Christmas, The Slow Readers Club now set their sights on the rest of the UK in 2019 with a tour that will takes in venues the length-and-breadth of the nation. Kicking off with a SOLD OUT at the Kendal Brewery Arts tomorrow night (2 March), tickets for the tour that will run throughout March and April have sold like cold beers in a sweaty gig venue and subsequent dates in Carlisle, Blackpool, Liverpool, Leicester, Portsmouth & St Albans are also already at capacity.
With many others predicted to follow-suit soon, please check the full list of UK dates still on sale below and online at: https://www.theslowreadersclub.co.uk/listings
