The Backseat Lovers Announce 2023 Tour
The brooding delicacy of The Backseat Lovers latest hit of new music, Slowing Down, subtly heralds the hotly-anticipated return of the band to venues in the UK & Ireland, releasing the track alongside news of their biggest shows to date. With its incessant heartbeat pulse, slowly snaking, crystalline guitar lines and hushed vocals, the third song revealed from the Utah DIY superstars upcoming, second album, Waiting to Spill, is another intensely affecting step on the way to its Fri 28 October 2022 release date on Polydor.
Such is the band’s word-of-mouth rise, memories of the four-piece’s debut London show less than a year ago, wowing a packed 300-capacity Moth Club will soon compare to a night at the historic O2 Kentish Town Forum in front of an audience of 2,300 as a run of seven spring 2023 dates is announced. Alongside the special, tour-closing performance in the capital, The Backseat Lovers play the ornate O2 Ritz, Manchester having played the intimate 110-capacity Gulliver’s pub in the same city just 18 months prior.
Renowned for their energetic, heart-and-soul-giving performances, The Backseat Lovers’ runaway popularity thousands of miles from their Salt Lake City home echoes that of their native USA, where tickets for legendary venues on their upcoming home leg, such as Los Angeles’ Wiltern and Brooklyn’s Steel are in sell-out demand. Firebrand performances at last year’s Lollapalooza, plus stadium shows with The Killers and Jack White, still ring in fans’ ears, raising expectations for what lies ahead.
All of the newly confirmed The Backseat Lovers UK & Ireland Spring 2023 Tour dates are as follows:
Wed 8 March – O2 Ritz, Manchester
Thu 9 March – O2 Academy, Birmingham
Fri 10 March – QMU, Glasgow
