Watch Declan McKenna play ‘Brazil’ on Conan

The next day, our Declan was back in Exeter playing Big Weekend. Trooper.
Things are getting really rather buzzy for young upstart Declan McKenna.

How many other acts appear on Big Old US Telly when they’re only just starting out? It’s a trick question – that’s what our Declan did last Friday night, when he appeared on Conan out in LA.

But he didn’t leave it there, either. He jumped straight back on a plane to the UK to play Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Exeter on Saturday. Exeter, obviously, just like the east coast of the USA.

He’s not finished there, though. Tomorrow he plays a preview show for Field Day at London’s Courtyard Theatre, with a run of live dates over the coming months.

Busy chap.

Check out that Conan performance, and those forthcoming live dates, below.
