Jake Bugg today announces his Your Town Tour for 2024, which will see him play 15 headline dates across the UK at some of the country’s smaller towns and venues, bringing live music back to the heart of communities.
“I can’t wait to get out and play tons of tunes to people in their hometowns”, Jake says, kicking off in Warrington on March 5th, 2024. He will perform two sets per night, acoustic and electric, rattling through his biggest hits, as well as tracks from his latest album, the Top 3-charting Saturday Night, Sunday Morning.
With local venues constantly under threat of closure, and grassroots music scenes dwindling, the Your Town Tour is Jake’s bid to bring a high profile live show back to some of the country’s towns that have seen drop offs in big touring artists visiting in recent years.
Over the last few years, the 29-year-old, who has 5 albums and numerous hit singles to his name, has grown into himself and gone from strength to strength. He stepped out of his comfort zone and is in the form of his life. His new music was embraced across the media. Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’s two stellar singles ‘All I Need’ & ‘Lost’, both produced by Steve Mac, were inescapable hits, booming across the airwaves, playlisted on Radio 1, Radio 2 & Radio X, and Jake turned in a stellar performance of ‘All I Need’ on Graham Norton on BBC1.
