Ash announce ‘A-Z’ UK tour and ticket details

Tim Wheeler and co set for almost alphabetical gig run

Ash have announced details of a new UK tour for later this year.

The pop-rock trio will play towns and cities in almost alphabetical order – beginning in Aldershot on October 19, and ending in the village of Zennor on November 23.

The only town out of step is Exmouth, which the band will play on November 21 – justifying its placing with the use of the letter ‘x’ in the town’s title.

Tim Wheeler and co will be joined by Panama Kings on the jaunt.
