Gaz Coombes announces 2023 UK and European headline tour

The Supergrass frontman will release new solo album 'Turn The Car Around' early next year

Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes has announced details of a headline tour of the UK and Europe in 2023 – see dates below and buy tickets here.

The singer will release his fourth solo album, ‘Turn The Car Around’, on January 13 via Hot Fruit Recordings/ Virgin Music (pre-order/pre-save here). It was announced back in September with first single ‘Don’t Say It’s Over’.

Around the album’s release date in January, Coombes will head on a short in-store tour of the UK, before headline European dates begin in March.


April will then see him return to the UK for headline dates that end with a London gig at Electric Ballroom.

“‘Turn The Car Around’ is a record that I’ve been building up to for the last seven years,” Coombes explained of the new album in a statement. It’s said that the project “captures the ups and downs of modern life and all the small print in between”.

The forthcoming record serves as the final part of a trilogy that began with Coombes’ 2015 LP ‘Matador’ and continued with his most recent full-length, 2018’s ‘World’s Strongest Man’.

Supergrass played a three-song set at the special Wembley Stadium event. Coombes also covered David Bowie‘s classic single ‘Modern Love’ alongside Nile Rodgers. “It was just one of the most incredible moments of my life,” Coombes remembered. “I mean, that song means a lot to me.”
