Badly Drawn Boy

Date: 8 Sep 2023
Location: Blackpool Tower

Damon Gough aka Badly Drawn Boy plays one of a series of intimate shows to celebrate 25 years of releasing music in the incredible heights of Blackpool Tower. It’s hard to predict what he will play from such a beautiful and eclectic nine-album discography. From his Mercury Prize-winning debut The Hour Of Bewilderbeast in 2000 to the enthralling soundtrack to Nick Hornby adaptation About A Boy (from 2002); Have You Fed The Fish? (also 2002) which featured You Were Right, his biggest single to date; the mental-state-of-the-nation epic Born In The U.K. (2006) and his most recent album Banana Skin Shoes released in 2020.
