Hot on the heels of their seventh T in the Park performance, Scots alternative rock band Travis announced today that they are to play Aberdeen’s Music Hall this autumn as part of an extended UK tour.
Tickets for the Tuesday, November 19 gig go onsale this Saturday (July 20) online at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
To a rapturous welcome, the Glasgow band gave an emotional performance in King Tuts Wah Wah tent at Balado on Saturday, at what is basically their home festival.
And today, they announced extra dates for their current UK tour, to include the Aberdeen city centre venue.
“This is a chance for fans of this great Scots band to see them live in a pretty intimate setting and an unmissable opportunity to hear them play numbers from their upcoming long-awaited seventh album Where You Stand,” said Aberdeen Performing Arts press manager Joyce Summers.
“It has already been a hot summer – and this is going to be a hot ticket when it goes on sale this weekend!”
Fronted by Fran Healy, with bass guitarist Dougie Payne, lead guitarist Andy Dunlop and drummer Neil Primrose, Travis released their first studio album - Good Feeling – in 1997 and their sixth - Ode To J Smith – in 2008.
They have twice been awarded Best Band at the BRIT Awards, and are often credited for having paved the way for bands such as Coldplay and Keane.
The band named themselves after the Harry Dean Stanton character Travis Henderson from the film Paris, Texas.
