Ian Brown has announced that he is hitting the road later this year, in what will be the first solo headline tour that he has embarked on in over ten years. 

The former Stone Roses frontman will take to the stage at venues around England and Scotland in September and October. The tour will begin in Leeds on September 25th, before heading up to Scotland for dates in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Brown will then travel through Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham, on the way to Bournemouth on the South Coast. After a show in Nottingham, the tour will reach its conclusion with a show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on Friday 7th October.

Brown was scheduled to play TRNSMT Festival and Neighbourhood Weekender last year, but the appearances didn't end up happening. When pulling out of Neighbourhood Weekend, the artist tweeted that he refused "to accept vaccination proof as condition of entry".

Later this year though, fans can see him back on stage. Here is the full list of venues and dates:

  • Sun 25 Sep    Leeds O2 Academy

  • Mon 26 Sep  Glasgow O2 Academy

  • Tue 27 Sep    Edinburgh O2 Academy

  • Thu 29 Sep  Newcastle O2 City Hall

  • Fri 30 Sep    Manchester O2 Victoria Warehouse

  • Sat 01 Oct   Liverpool Uni Mountford Hall

  • Mon 03 Oct Birmingham O2 Academy

  • Tue 04 Oct  Bournemouth O2 Academy

  • Thu 06 Oct Nottingham Rock City

  • Fri 07 Oct   London O2 Academy Brixton

As a solo artist, Brown has released seven studio albums, the most recent being 2019’s Ripples, which landed in the UK charts at number four, and was his first LP in over a decade. The Stone Roses released two albums: their eponymous debut in 1989 and 1994’s Second Coming.
