Former Lead singer of The Seahorses,Chris Helme, announces UK tour

Chris Helme – who first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire’s post-Stone Roses  band ‘The Seahorses’ – released his new solo album, The Rookery, on August 27 to excellent  reviews in the likes of Q, Mojo, Uncut and Classic Rock Magazine. He is now pleased to announce  an Autumn / Winter UK tour.
