Big Big Train & The Likes Of Us On UK Tour

Award-winning progressive rock band Big Big Train will release their 15th studio album, The Likes Of Us, their first for the InsideOutMusic record label on 1st March, and ahead of that is their latest single,  ‘Miramare’, that’s out now.

Concurrent with this, the seven-piece band has announced 12 shows to take place in September and October 2024 in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Norway, where they will perform songs from The Likes Of Us album, alongside fan favourites.

“We’re really looking forward to getting back on the road this autumn around the UK and Europe,” said lead vocalist Alberto Bravin. “Following the success of last year’s The Journey Continues tour, we can’t wait to do it all again. On this tour in Autumn we will be playing a significant amount of The Likes Of Us as well as some Big Big Train classics and a few surprises.”

Drummer Nick D’Virgilio added: “Last year’s Big Big Train shows were so much fun. We made some changes to the set list every night. It was very challenging but it kept things fresh for both us and the audience, so we’re going to take a similar approach on this tour to make every show genuinely unique.”

“For this tour we’ve decided to return to some of our favourite venues, “ noted bassist Gregory Spawton, adding, “But we were also keen to return to Wales for the first time since 2019 and get back to the north east and north west of England as well as visiting some parts of the country where Big Big Train hasn’t played before. While some fans travel vast distances to see us live, we recognise that others aren’t able to do so and therefore we’re trying to bring the show to them.”

Guitarist Rikard Sjöblom concluded by saying: “In an ideal world, we would play everywhere! Scheduling is always challenging and so while we couldn’t organise a Swedish show this time around, I’m delighted that we will be performing in Oslo and Copenhagen again for my fellow Scandinavians. And I’m particularly looking forward to our weekend at the Boerderij where we plan to play two very different shows.”
