Tom Waits announces two UK shows

Scarlett Johansson's favourite singer heads for Edinburgh

Tom Waits has announced the two UK shows on his forthcoming European tour, both in Edinburgh.

The veteran singer-songwriter will perform at the Edinburgh Playhouse on July 27 and 28 as part of his 15-date ‘Glitter And Doom’ jaunt.

Waits, who has just completed the US leg of the tour, hasn’t played the Scottish city since 1987.

The singer’s last release was the rarities compilation ‘Orphans’, out in 2006, but he’s set to appear as The Devil in Terry Gilliam’s new film, ‘The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus’.
