We’re delighted to be welcoming Beans on Toast back to Gorilla!

This February, cult folk legend Beans on Toast will take to the road in support of his brand new album Survival of the Friendliest, offering some hope and light relief from this bizarre world in which we find ourselves.

Visiting a long list of the UK’s finest independent venues and joined by a brand new live band, Beans will be back doing what he loves: making friends, making memories, singing songs and telling stories.

Survival of the Friendliest (released on 1 December 2021) was produced by Blaine Harrison of The Mystery Jets. It’s a record all about hope, positivity and camaraderie that chooses to celebrate the very best of human nature.

Support on the tour will be Camden’s finest, Kitty Liv – the new solo venture for the soulful musical mastermind best know for her role in the family band Kitty, Daisy and Lewis.

This is a 14+ show. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. 

Buy tickets now. Tickets are also available from Dice.fm,  WeGotTickets.comTicketline.co.uk and on 0871 220 0260.
