Ray Davies For July Solo Tour

He’s a 21st century man and still
not sure if he wanna be here, but he’ll at least do a tour.

Ray Davies — currently featured in an exclusive Q&A in
the June digital magazine of BLURT — will perform a handful of special acoustic
shows in support of his critically-hailed Working Man’s Café (New West
Records/Ammal Records).  As our very on Jud Cost puts it, about the Kinks
mainman, “With a robust back catalog of Kinks songs
whose shimmering melodies and Dickensian attention to detail would give even
Lennon & McCartney a run for their dough, Davies’ Working Man’s Café shows
the old boy still fully in control of his art. His new tunes treat world peace,
job out-sourcing and the demolition of old churches with equal zest.”

 

The dates will bring the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Member
and music legend to select markets where he will perform acoustically as a duo.
