Still going strong and churning out albums like they’re afraid someone’s going to take their instruments away from them, the ever-popular Ash have announced a UK tour that kicks off on the 19th of April in Southampton.

Ash were Northern Ireland's contribution to Britpop, which was simply British pop in the 90s, spun like everything else in the decade. Ash however needed no spinning and stood out in a grungy, indie fashion and didn’t need to fellate Tony Blair even once.

Last year, the band embarked on a tour that saw them work their way through the country in an A-Z fashion. They’ve always been men of letters; the name ‘Ash’ was the first word in the dictionary they liked. This year, alphabetically-speaking, they’re all over the place, but probably none the worse for it.

Their shows are:

19 Apr - Southampton University
20 Apr – Cambridge, Junction
21 Apr – Norwich, Waterfront
23 Apr – Birmingham, Irish Centre
24 Apr – Leeds, Metropolitan University
25 Apr – Newcastle, O2 Academy
27 Apr – Glasgow, O2 ABC
28 Apr – Manchester, Academy 2
30 Apr – Bristol, O2 Academy
01 May – Brighton, Concorde 2
02 May – Oxford, O2 Academy
04 May – London, Electric Ballroom
Tickets are on sale Monday 11th Jan at 9am. Click Here to Compare & Buy Ash Tickets

Thu 31 May 2018
Some albums make an instant impact, others take a little time to reveal their charms. The quick-fix magic of the former often wears off swiftly, while the latter usually possess a depth of quality that screams ‘built to last’. With that in mind, any initial feelings of disappointment towards ‘Islands’, the seventh effort of Ash’s eternally youthful career, should be shelved until its stealthy allure has been given the opportunity to sink in.
