Damon Albarn, Bombay Bicycle Club's Jack Steadman and Amadou & Mariam will tour on the Africa Express train this September.

The Africa Express is a collective of African and Western musicians and DJs co-founded by Damon Albarn. As well as gigs in Middlesbrough, Glasgow, Manchester, Cardiff and Bristol, the group will do pop-up performances at railway stations, schools, factories, offices, shopping centres and people's houses.

The train will then finish up at King's Cross station in London, for a finale concert at London's Granary Square.

Africa Express began in 2006 with a trip to Mali, when Albarn took Fatboy Slim, Martha Wainwright and Jamie T to work with African artists such as Toumani Diabate, Salif Keita, Amadou & Mariam and Bassekou Kouyate.

The Africa Express tour calls at:

Middlesbrough Town Hall (September 3)
Glasgow The Arches (4)
Manchester The Ritz (5)
Cardiff Solus (6)
Briston The Big Top @ Creative Common (7)
London Granary Square at Kings Cross (8)
