Gaz Coombes has announced that he will be playing a headline show at Manchester’s Band On The Wall on Sunday 24th March 2024. The gig is at the end of Gaz Coombes’ first solo UK live tour of 2024.

Released via Hot Fruit/Virgin Music, Gaz’s acclaimed latest solo album Turn The Car Around debuted at number six in the UK Official Album Charts, marking his highest charting solo record to date. The album amassed a swarm of praise from fans and critics alike, making it a longstanding fixture inside the top ten in Metacritic’s Best Reviewed Albums of 2023.

Regarded as the best work of his illustrious career, Turn The Car Around is an album that both tapped into the sonic palettes and lyrical themes of its predecessors, completing an informal trilogy of albums with 2015’s Mercury and Ivor Novello nominated Matador and 2018’s World’s Strongest Man. At the same time, it carves a bold new way forwards. It is a snapshot of an artist in the midst of a creative purple patch. “The one thing that has really nourished me in the last ten years is the idea of evolving as an artist, evolving my writing to keep moving forward,” Gaz says. “I run on vibe. I always have.” The vibes have never been better.

In April, Gaz will tour the UK in support to Johnny Marr at dates beginning at Newcastle’s City Hall on 2nd April, including London’s Eventim Apollo on 12th April, before closing at Nottingham’s Rock City on 14th April.
