Mac DeMarco has announced a five-date tour of the UK for November, including his first headline arena show in this country. Tickets go on sale this Friday, 7 June, at 10am. For more information on tickets and all the dates, please visit the artist’s official website.
The tour includes DeMarco’s first UK headline arena show, at London’s Alexandra Palace, as well as concerts in Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and Liverpool. The full tour dates are detailed below. The announcement comes after DeMarco appeared at the final night of All Points East last night, on a bill topped by Bon Iver.
The shows are in support of DeMarco’s recent album Here Comes The Cowboy, which reached No 23 in the UK album chart and No 10 in the US Billboard chart.
He returns to the UK this month to perform at Glastonbury Festival on Friday, 28 June where he plays the Other Stage at 3.30pm, before he headlines his own festival Mac DeMarco Will See You Now…At Dreamland Margate the following day in Margate. The bill also includes Aldous Harding and Thurston Moore. DeMarco also plays shows in Glasgow and Halifax this month.
‘Here Comes The Cowboy’ is DeMarco’s fourth full album and was recorded over two weeks in January. DeMarco played all the instruments on the album, apart from keyboards by his long-time associate Alec Meen.
De Marco says of his new album: “This one is my cowboy record. Cowboy is a term of endearment to me, I use it often when referring to people in my life. Where I grew up there are many people that sincerely wear cowboy hats and do cowboy activities. These aren’t the people I’m referring to.”
