HAT’S ENTERTAINMENT

Maybe Damon Gough will take off his hat and have a shave for that show, which is part of an extensive European tour...

BADLY DRAWN BOY has announced details of a comprehensive European tour, including his largest LONDON show to date at the prestigous ROYAL ALBERT HALL.

The eccentric Manc popster will start his tour in Dublin on March 8, before visiting Belgium, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Italy, France and Spain.

He will end the tour with two shows in England. The first is at the Royal Royal Albert Hall, and the final show at the Manchester Apollo (April 7). At Badly Drawn Boy’s last show in his hometown on New Year’s Eve, he was bottled off after just 40 minutes.
