KIRK BRANDON has confirmed a new show for his 2020 aKoustiK tour with Sam Sansbury. The 13-date tour includes stops at Stockton’s Green Room and two gigs at Durham’s Old Cinema Launderette.

Kirk Brandon is the voice of Spear of Destiny, Theatre of Hate and Dead Men Walking. With over 15 studio albums and countless single releases, his career now spans well over 30 years.

He has enjoyed worldwide success with all three of the above bands and is also a leader in every punk rock poll by being the singer and songwriter in The Pack.

Over the last 11 years, Kirk has released five solo acoustic studio albums (the Dutch Masters series) that have pulled tracks from all eras of his career.

These albums have also featured many of the people Kirk has worked with and collaborated with over the years including Derek Forbes (Simple Minds), Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), Mike Peters (The Alarm) and Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets).

The latest of these solo acoustic albums, entitled Dutch Masters Volume Five, has become, in its first year of release, the best seller in the series.

“DM5” features two Theatre of Hate interpretations, a James Bond theme and a country and western cover of a Ry Cooder tune.

Over the past four years Kirk has been joined by master cello player Sam Sansbury both in the studio and at live shows. Two well received studio albums have been released – Cello Suites, and Uno & Duo.

Audiences are told they can expect a special event that will feature all the hits – and misses – including Never Take Me Alive, Do You Believe In The Westworld?, Worldservice, So In Love With You, Young Men, and Original Sin.
