After over two years off the road, top Scouse quintet The Zutons have announced a list of UK dates. What’s unusual about that is that the ‘venues’ are all forests up and down the country.
In a statement on The Zutons.com, the band say: “The Forestry Commission is committed to taking woodlands to new audiences, and making them relevant to people in new ways. The forest tour is self-sustaining, paying for itself, and providing valuable revenue to plough back into the woodland in a variety of environmental and social projects.”
June 5 - Thetford Forest, Suffolk
June 8 - Bedgebury Pinetum And Forest, Kent
June 13 - Delamere Forest, Cheshire
June 20 - Westonbirt National Arboretum, Gloucestershire
June 21 - Sherwood Pines Forest Park, Nottinghamshire
June 27 - Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire
June 28 - Cannock Chase Forest, Staffordshire
Tickets go on sale 22nd February.
If flailing away at flocks of midges or scoffing lukewarm hedgehogs roasted in clay isn’t your bag, the band has also been confirmed to strut their stuff at the Isle of Wight Festival in June…
