The star announces an extensive tour...

BADLY DRAWN BOY has announced a North American tour for October.

The singer-songwriter, also known as Damon Gough, might have shunned Californian studios to make current album ‘One Plus One Is One’, but he isn’t turning his back on North America completely.

And, with new single ‘Year Of The Rat’ on rotation on MTV and MTV2, and the album Number One most added at CMJ, his popularity shows no sign of waning.

The dates are:

Vancouver Commodore (October 5)

Walla Walla Whitman College (6)

Portland Aladdin Theatre (7)

Seattle Showbox (8)

San Francisco Fillmore (10)

Los Angeles Avalon (12)

San Diego Cane’s (13)

Phoenix Marquee Theatre (14)

Salt Lake City In The Venue (16)

Boulder Fox Theatre (17)

Lawrence Liberty Hall (18)

Minneapolis Pantages (20)

Chicago Vic Theatre (21)

St Louis Pageant (22)

Dallas Gypsy Tea Room (24)

Austin La Zona Rosa (25)
