The Courteeners frontman will be touring the UK this autumn with an acoustic set

Liam Fray has announced an acoustic tour of the UK this autumn.

The Courteeners frontman will play a series of intimate acoustic shows across the country in October and November.

Fray has promised the gigs will involve Courteeners classics as well as a deep dive into rarely heard songs from the band’s decade old back catalogue.

The Courteeners released their fifth album, ‘Mapping the Rendezvous’ last October and have played a string of UK festival dates this year – including Glastonbury, where Fray praised the festival’s atmosphere of “love and hope.”

The band also played a huge show at Manchester’s LCCC Old Trafford cricket ground in May, where they played an emotional tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack by covering Oasis’ ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’.
