The Good The Bad & The Queen have arranged six UK dates for April next year.
The collective of Damon Albarn, Paul Simonon, Tony Allen and Simon Tong will play shows in Norwich, Cardiff, Sheffield, Manchester, Liverpool and London after releasing their Merrie Land album last month. “This has been coming – Damon Albarn has been opposed to Brexit from the off,” Live4ever’s review opens.
“Back in 2016, on the day after the UK’s EU referendum vote, he was at Glastonbury performing with The Orchestra Of Syrian Musicians and addressed the subdued crowd: “Democracy has failed us because it was ill informed,” he said.”
“A reformation of The Good The Bad & The Queen (back in 2007 it was ambiguous as to whether or not it was a band, an album or a project – now we know) was the most likely of his various platforms to be an outlet for his thoughts on the subject.”
