The Long Blondes’ Kate Jackson lines up solo tour

Kate's debut solo album will be released in May.
The Long Blondes’ Kate Jackson is going to be aiming for giddy stratospheres* this spring with a solo tour in support of her new album, ‘British Road Movies’.

The run will kick off on 17th May in Cambridge before heading to venues separated by motorways* in Brighton, London, Glasgow and Sheffield.

She’ll play London twice, with both a gig at Courtyard Theatre and an earlier instore, and the remaining towns once and never again*.

The Rough Trade set will be a fairly early one, at 7pm – so you shouldn’t need someone to drive you home*.

Due for release on 20th May through Hoo Ha Records, she recorded her debut full-length with Bernard Butler.

“We initially bonded over a shared love of Bowie, The Fall, Neil Young and Brian Eno,” Kate explains, “and quickly found that songwriting flowed freely between us.”

The dates are:


17 The Portland Arms, Cambridge

19 The Great Escape, Brighton

20 Rough Trade East, London – 7pm


03 Courtyard Theatre, London

04 The Hug and Pint, Glasgow

05 Picture House Social, Sheffield
