We’re delighted to be presenting the Manchester leg of Nikki Lane’s debut UK tour!


For her hotly anticipated sophomore album Nashville songstress Nikki Lane teamed up with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys for a record that turns the vulnerable singer-songwriter stereotype on its ears.

With songs that crucify ex-boyfriends, celebrate one-night stands (as long as she can bolt town right after) and proclaim it’s ‘always the right time to do the wrong thing’, Lane comes across like a modern-era Wanda Jackson, albeit with more oats to sow.

‘My songs always paint a pretty clear picture of what’s been going on in my life, so this is one moody record,’ she says. ‘There’s lots of talk of misbehaving and moving on.’

Support comes from The Travelling Band‘s Jo Dudderidge.
