Chris Bourne hits the road for The Funfair Tour this October

To promote his latest solo material, Chris Bourne has announced that’ll he’ll be touring the UK this October. The Essex-born singer will be performing in four different cities!

As you may already know, Chris released his debut solo single ‘MFT80s’ earlier this year and it’s certainly proved to be a huge hit with his fans. The official music video for the catchy track recently got played on the big screens at Busted’s UK tour and Chris even attended many of the band’s shows to meet fans and support his brother James.

Now, Chris is preparing for his very own tour. He previously played gigs all over the world with his band Hollywood Ending so Chris has definitely got lots of experience when it comes to performing live. We’re sure that he’ll put on a fantastic show every night.

Sharing his excitement about the forthcoming concerts on Facebook, Chris said: “Yooo UK, I’m super stoked to announce that I’m playing these rad shows this October !! Check out ‘The Funfair Tour’ Come out and party !!!! :) #RETROVIBES

The Funfair Tour will kick off in Glasgow on the 26th October and the final show is set to take place in London on 30th October. Chris’ currently announced dates are as follows:

  • 26th October – Glasgow – O2ABC 2
  • 27th October – Birmingham – O2 Academy 3
  • 28th October – Manchester – Sound Control
  • 30th October – London – O2 Academy 2 Islington

Standard and VIP tickets for all four of Chris Bourne’s gigs are available here on See Tickets. Limited opportunities to meet Chris before the show and hang out backstage afterwards are also up for grabs so make sure you get them while you still can.

Back in April, we spoke to Chris about: his plans as a solo artist, his various musical influences and much more. You can read our exclusive interview in full here online.

Chris Bourne’s fans are clearly excited about his tour and we can see why. The ‘MFT80s’ singer has teased that he’s got lots of surprises planned so we’d certainly recommend that you buy tickets to a show if you can. You seriously won’t want to miss out.
