The legendary Mick Head, revered as one of the greatest British songwriters has announced that he is to visit Newcastle.

After revealing that he will release a NEW ALBUM to follow the incredible success of 2022’s Dear Scott, called Loophole – produced by Bill Ryder Jones – set for release on Fri 3 May 2024, he also announced a NEW TOUR, spanning this May. Add to that his long-awaited AUTOBIOGRAPHY coming out in the summer and 2024 will be a ‘Year Of Mick Head’.

2024 will be a ‘Year Of Mick Head’ that pulls focus to the singer-songwriters’ wild life, long career and indelible mark on the lives of his listeners, and will also mark not only the 40th anniversary of the release of his first band, The Pale Fountains’ cherished, cult-classic debut album, Pacific Street, but also 25 years since the release of Shack’s exalted long-player, HMS Fable.  As well as plenty of surprises, the upcoming autobiography, titled Ciao Ciao Bambino: A Magical Memoir, is expected to tell the stories of those musical milestones.
