Blues crooner sells out Astoria on first date of tour

Seasick Steve kicked off his mini UK tour last night with a special appearance from Scottish singer KT Tunstall.

Taking to the stage dressed in chequered shirt and dungarees, the tattooed musician rocked straight into an hour-long set of foot stomping Americana blues much to the joy of the sold out Astoria crowd – who cheered and stomped at every strum.

Creating a massive wall of sound with just himself and his homemade amp on stage, Steve was joined by a drummer and his grandson on tambourine for a few tracks – the first time he’s played live with percussion.

But it was special guest KT Tunstall that really excited the crowd.

The singer joined Steve for a foot-stomping guitar strumming track – and even popped back on to play the flute for a song.

Seasick Steve’s tour continues tonight (January 26) at Birmingham Academy.
