Autumn 2013 Tour Dates

The hugely talented Damian Wilson heads out on a series of live dates commencing in September  Damian who has performed with some of the cream of British Prog Rock bands  will be playing solo shows some of which are acoustic shows with free entry 

From September Damian Wilson will embark on an adventurous trek of playing songs from his solo albums, including a selection never performed live before, and songs from the various bands he plays and has played in. There will be a select number of special shows in which he will be joined on stage by the people who were at the heart of the original recordings. The Damian Wilson Ensemble

Damian Wilson is a singer-songwriter widely known for his contribution to the progressive rock and metal genre as lead singer for bands such as Threshold, Headspace and Landmarq. He has recorded four solo albums, released a live DVD set and a double disc ‘best of’ compilation I Thought The World Was Listening 1997-2011.
