Dan Patlansky announces UK tour
Exclusive: Guitarist Dan Patlansky announces UK tour dates - with support from Ash Wilson
Dan Patlansky has announced a seven-date UK tour which will take place this spring.
The guitarist will be on the road in support of his latest album Introvertigo, which launched in 2016.
Patlansky will be supported on the run of dates by special guest Ash Wilson.
Speaking about Introvertigo last year, Patlansky told Classic Rock: “I think it was definitely a continuation from Dear Silence Thieves – kind of where we left off.
“This one has maybe a rawer feel, but it’s broadly the same influences as before, such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King – and it may not be apparent, but there was more of a Pink Floyd influence on some of the songwriting.
“I wanted to let the songs do the talking again – that was the game plan going ahead.”
Patlansky also revealed that he was keen to concentrate on the European market as he didn’t want to spread himself too thin.
He added: “Trying to do the States, the UK, Europe and maybe Japan at the same time – we’d just do a half-arsed job, because we don’t have the money to market it properly.
“My thoughts are to try and get something really good happening in the UK and western Europe. We’ve got a bit of momentum there, so we want to keep building the fanbase.”
