Travis - 2021 Tour

Event Date: Fri 30 April 2021 - 7pm

Celebrating 10 Songs with headline UK dates

Starting life as Glass Onion following time together at Glasgow School Of Art, by the end of the '90s Travis had emerged as a driving force in British rock. The Scottish quartet spearheaded the '00s scene that would birth Coldplay, Snow Patrol and their ilk.

Self-releasing their debut All I Wanna Do Is Rock EP in 1996, Travis subsequently signed to Andy MacDonald's Independiente Records for their first album Good Feeling. With acclaimed U2 producer Steve Lillywhite at the helm, the album reached the top ten on the UK chart and spawned hit singles Happy and Tied To The '90s.

It would be 1999's The Man Who that truly cemented Travis' musical legacy. Comprising vocalist Fran Healy, bassist Dougie Payne, lead guitarist Andy Dunlop and drummer Neil Primrose, the band offered a darker sound through tracks such as Why Does It Always Rain On Me?, Driftwood, Turn and Writing To Reach You. Although the album was initially met by a lukewarm reception, a fittingly rain-soaked Glastonbury Festival appearance garnered significant praise from fans and media alike and propelled Travis to the top of the charts. BRIT, Music Week and Ivor Novello awards followed.

Their The Invisible Band sophomore record emerged in 2001, seeing Travis reunite with The Man Who producer Nigel Godrich. It debuted at No.1 and, as well as celebrating stateside success, its single Sing became the most played song across UK airwaves that summer. It also secured the band another BRIT Award.

Having celebrated the 10 year anniversary of The Man Who with special album shows in 2017, the band unveiled new material in 2019. Kissing In The Wind was the first track to emerge from their 2020 album, 10 Songs. Released in October 2020, their ninth studio album was also preceded by the singles Valentine, A Ghost and The Only Thing, featuring Susanna Hoffs (of the Bangles). To mark the album's release, Travis announced UK headline shows for April and May 2021.
