The Holloways announce seaside tour

Band head out on Cliff Richard inspired tour

The Holloways have announced a summer seaside tour.

Inspired by Cliff Richard’s ’Summer Holiday’ film, the band have hired a red double decker bus which will tour around seaside resorts and see the band play a variety of unusual venues. The special tour will culminate with a gig in Cleethorpes on June 7.

Frontman Alfie Jackson said of the idea behind the tour: “It’s totally selfish on our part. We just love being beside the seaside. Whenever we’re on the road and near the coast, we head for the nearest beach and hit the amusement arcades. We thought it would be fun to do that for a whole tour.”

The band are also set to re-release their single ’Generator’ on June 5.

The tour dates, including some non-seaside shows, are:

Glasgow QMU (May 24)

Manchester Academy (25)

Birmingham Irish Centre (27)

London Electric Ballroom (28)

Bournemouth Opera House (June 1)

Morecombe Dome (2)

Whitehaven Civic Hall (3)

Swansea Sin City (4)

Penzance The Acorn (5)

Southend Chinnery’s (6)

Cleethorpes The Pier (7)
