Simon Townshend UK Tour 2013


Touring the UK this summer, Simon Townshend is a familiar name, with an original sound. Straight from the lineage of a musical family, Simon is also the brother of The Who legend, Pete Townshend and regularly plays with The Who and numerous other established acts.

Simon has been recording and performing since the age of nine, when he was recruited to add vocals to The Who classic, Tommy. A solo artist in his own right, he has successfully released solo albums as well as one with the band Casbah Club (featuring Bruce Foxton – The Jam and Mark Brzezicki – Big Country).

Last year Simon released his finest and most impactful solo recording to date, ‘Looking Out, Looking In’ and is now set to tour the UK, visiting O2 Academy venues in London, Sheffield, Newcastle and Liverpool.

“'I'm looking forward to getting back out on the road with my amazing band in June to support the release of my next album, ‘Denial’” says Simon Townshend. “This album, of all my work, has the broadest appeal. The songs are inspired and the recording was a breeze. Mark Brzezicki (Big Country, The Cult) features on drums, Phil Spalding (Elton John, Toyah) on bass and Tony Lowe (Julien Clerc) additional electric guitars. There will be limited edition signed vinyl, too. Come out and enjoy some modern rock with a difference.”
