During the Corona crisis and lockdown Marc performed a series of live online studio concerts which received a fantastic response and worldwide viewing, but he will be happy to be back where he really belongs – in a real concert environment seeing his fans face to face.
His last album Chaos and a Dancing Star was released to critical acclaim just before the Pandemic and lockdown. Marc was able to perform a one off concert in February 2020 at the Festival Hall with co-writer Producer Chris Braide, joined by guest Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull. This was recorded for a future live album release.
Beginning in Guildford, Marc Almond in Concert, will call at Bexhill, Brighton, the London Roundhouse, Glasgow, Perth, Manchester, Leeds, Southend, Birmingham, before finishing up at the Buxton Opera House.
