Former Mansun frontman Paul Draper is heading off on his first national solo acoustic tour this November and is playing at York Crecent Community Venue on the 21st November, performing tracks from his debut solo album Spooky Action, as well as Mansun classics and deep cuts. PLUS as yet unheard songs from Paul’s second solo album, due in 2019!
Wanting the shows to be an intimate affair he is running a competition to find a local support at each town to perform a half hour acoustic set before he goes on stage so it would be great if you can preview the upcoming show but also let your readers know about this great opportunity for local artists….
In order to enter please send a link to your music with a short bio and ideally a YouTube clip to firstname.lastname@example.org – entries close TODAY and local supports will be announced on the 19th October.
Message from Paul: “Back at the height of Britpop, my band Mansun ran a competition to give a local band a support slot on every gig of our biggest UK tour, playing to 50,000 people. Once again I am in a position, on my first national solo acoustic tour, to offer a local artist an opportunity to join the bill of my acoustic show in each of the 8 towns and cities I’m visiting in November. I have no doubt the competition will be red hot and the artists of a high calibre to play at these packed out shows. My management and I really look forward to judging entries from the locality of each gig and welcome the winner in each town to our show. It will be an exciting few weeks ahead judging the abundance of talent I know we’re going to see”
