Nik Kershaw announces the ‘No Glitz, Just Hitz!’ UK tour, including shows in Manchester, Glasgow, and London.

Nik Kershaw is returning to touring for the first time in 11 years. Along with his fabulous band, the brilliant Mr Kershaw are set to embark on a small but perfectly formed tour of the UK.

Beginning 27 September at Leeds Brudenell, the ‘No Glitz, Just Hitz’ tour will take in a wide expanse of England and Scotland, including Glasgow’s famed Oran Mor on 29 September, Manchester New Century on October 2, and the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London on October 5. The tour winds up on October 7 at Exeter Phoenix.

The ’No Glitz, Just Hitz’ tour will see Nik perform “up close and in your face”, alongside his band, with fans getting the opportunity to see Nik perform a variety of his much-loved hits, including ‘Wouldn’t It Be Good’, ‘The Riddle’, ‘I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’, ‘Dancing Girls’, ‘Wide Boy’, ‘Human Racing’, ‘Don Quixote’ and many others.

Once described by Sir Elton John as, “the best songwriter of his generation”, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
