River Matthews Made Us A Tour Diary!

Mustachio’d singer-songwriter River Matthews is such a dude he sent us some pictures from his last tour. Life on the road isn’t always what you’d expect. It’s full of sweat, broken strings & boats but most of all, lots and lots of really cool people. Check out River’s tour diary below…

Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen, Leeds

Stayed only a 5 min walk from the venue so got there with loads of time to spare! Nice place, and good for food. An especially friendly crowd tonight. Had an impromptu jam on stage with Kovic, the other support act… great fun this one!

Sound Control, Manchester

Second time I’ve played here… Manchester’s cool… great crowd… Really nice to spend more time with Kovic and get to know Coasts a bit more. Those boys both rocked!

O2 Institute, Birmingham

Man it was hot in here! Pretty cool venue though, some old converted theatre I thiiiink?! Again though, really nice crowd. Sweaty but great show!

Thekla, Bristol

It’s on a boat mate! Cool venue, cool city. Another fun jam with the boys from Kovic. Great show. Broke a string… what you gonna do!

Heaven, London

There were no gates, and no angels, but some really nice crew and a crazy crowd! Was an ace end to the tour. Really great to hang out with the other bands a bit more tonight… real nice guys, proper gents! Amazing tour! Thanks lads!

The Great Escape, Brighton

Such a cool festival… venues dotted all over the town. Played pretty much right next to the sea… those seagulls are like houses! Great sound at the venue. Good crowd… appreciate everyone coming down in the rain! Cheers!

River Matthews plays St Pancas Old Church in London on the 13th July 2017. Get tickets for that show and check out River’s upcoming dates at
