Billy Bragg hits the road
Billy Bragg has announced details of a UK winter tour.

The singer will hit the road for his second anti-racist/facist trek of the year entitled 'Hope Not Hate Tour Part II' in December.

The jaunt, which is supported by Searchlight, Unite Against Fascism, Love Music Hate Racism, Show Racism The Red Card and The Leftfield, aims to raise awareness of the threat of racism and the rise of the BNP in the UK.

Bragg said: “In this 70th year of the Battle of Cable Street (East End rally which forced back a march by the fascist Oswald Mosley) and with the rise of the BNP, it’s crucial that we continue our campaign against racism and fascism in Britain."

The shows will include live highlights from Bragg’s just-released ‘Billy Bragg Volume 2’ box set as well as a preview of new songs he is recording for his forthcoming album next year.

Billy Bragg will play:

York Opera House (December 1)
Holmfirth Picturedome (2)
Burnley Mechanics Arts Centre (3)
Glasgow City Hall (4)
Perth Concert Hall (6)
Aberdeen Lemon Tree (7)
London Hackney Empire (10)
