The band will tour the UK and Ireland this autumn
Travis have announced plans for a Christmas homecoming show.
The band will play Glasgow Barrowlands on December 20, following their October and November tour of the UK. Tickets for the Glasgow show go on sale October 11 at 9am. The band released their seventh LP, ‘Where You Stand’, in August. It followed 2008’s ‘Ode To J Smith’ and featured Michael Ilbert on production duties (The Hives/The Cardigans) who worked on the record at David Bowie’s favoured Hansa Studios in Berlin.
Speaking about the band’s departure from the spotlight, bassist Dougie Payne commented: “You stay away as long as it takes, so you feel that hunger and desire to get back to it same as you did at the start.”
Travis released their debut album, ‘Good Feeling’, in 1997. Their 1999 album ‘The Man Who’, topped the UK’s Official Album Chart and was that year’s biggest selling record in the UK, shifting over 2.7 million copies. It was followed by 2001’s ‘The Invisible Band’, which again took the Number One spot on the UK’s Official Album Chart.
