“My fans know the latest material by now, and so I can use them as the other instruments and get them singing. It’s quite freeing being up there alone, changing things as I go,” explains NICK MULVEY ahead of his highly anticipated solo tour this month.

Removing himself from his trusted band, Mulvey will venture to some particularly intimate venues with the reasoning that: “I wanted to feel close to the audience and so smaller rooms feels right for this tour.”

There are no nerves going into the shows, but instead a sense of excitement is formed, which is aided by Mulvey “feeling really good” about being back on the road and heading to cities and towns that are often home to larger, bigger scale shows. Notably, “the Glastonbury of the north” aka Hebden Bridge” is one of those. As is “Buxton Opera House” because it “is a venue I’ve heard good things about, too.”

So, what will differ between a full-band show and one where it is Mulvey up there stripped back? He reveals, “it’s just me up onstage,” which sounds obvious, but when the ‘freedom’ is described as: “more space to improvise and make diversions with the material,” it is clear that setlists or rigid routines are not necessary. The removal of a setlist is interesting, and Mulvey is excited to do say, joking: “I welcome ‘hecklers’ who wanna call out tunes – as long as they’re my own, mind!”

As well as the lack of band members, the stage will feature “a few different guitars and pedals but, as I said, it’s a lot about the audience and us all singing together.  I believe we all have these voices and it feels so good to use them. The shows will be high energy with a lot of emotion, as that’s how the songs are. I’m relaxed up there and enjoying my music So everybody can relax too.”

The shows will certainly be interesting and not one to miss – especially if there’s a Nick Mulvey song you want to hear. Give him a shout and have a dance.


FINAL TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE.

    Sounds cynical but it’s always been my way ,nevertheless some Mulvey tunes are bound to get anyone singing! Especially the newer ones
