We’re delighted to be working with Jens Lekman again – for his rescheduled, sold out Manchester date, plus an intimate visit to Hebden Bridge!

Jens Lekman recently wrapped up a sold out solo tour of the US where he played new material live for the first time ever.

Life Will See You Now, his first album since 2012’s I Know What Love Isn’t, was released on Secretly Canadian in February 2017. Produced by Ewan Pearson and featuring guest vocals from Tracey Thorn, it has gone on to gain critical praise – with The Observer acclaiming it as ‘a gospel worth spreading’.

Following a March tour that took in Leeds, Jens returns to the UK in August, with this intimate date in Hebden Bridge – plus a re-arranged Manchester show.

Support at both shows comes from New York’s Mega Bog. Mega Bog’s second album Happy Together was released February 2017 via Nicey. Ben Levinson of Tiny Mix Tapes describes it as ‘a labyrinthian DIY-pop exploration of violence, social spaces, and lived experiences’.

MANCHESTER: This date is a rescheduled show, following the March postponement. Original tickets remain valid – otherwise, this show is completely sold out.
