Hartlepool musician Michael Gallagher announces December tour as he releases new single
An up-and-coming musician from Hartlepool has announced a three-date tour in December as he releases new single.
Hartlepool born and bred Michael Gallagher has revealed he will be embarking on a three-date tour in December – as he releases his brand-new song ‘Time’.
The tour will see Michael play dates in Newcastle, London and Manchester this winter with tickets going on sale on Friday, June 4 at 10am.
It will kick off on December 16 with a show at Newcastle’s Think Tank, followed by a concert at the Water Rats in London on December 17.
Michael will then play at the Off The Square in Manchester on December 18.
Speaking of the tour, Michael told the Mail: “I honestly can not wait. It’s going to be so good to get in front of a crowd again and play some music."
He promised concert-goers ‘a good time’ with lots of new music and some old favourites,
“Mostly it’s just going to a big party,” he said.
"Tickets have flown out so going to be a busy one.”
He added: “I just know it’s going to be mint craic going up and down the country with my mates in the van.
"It would be great to get in front of some new crowds also.”
Michael hasn’t been able to perform in Hartlepool since 2019, but said a show in his hometown is also in the works.
He said: “The last time we played a hometown show was in 2019 at the Town Hall and that was a special night. We’re working on bringing something as special if not more later in the year.”
So far in 2021, Michael has released three singles, gaining support from Radio X’s John Kennedy, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing.
‘Time’ packs an anthemic punch, complete with a driving chorus laden with guitars to follow up Michael’s previous single ‘Call My Name’.
Michael’s debut track Yesterday was released in October last year and featured on BBC Music Introducing.
The 24-year-old artist, who grew up in the Dyke House area of Hartlepool, has honed his talent for music since childhood after his nan who introduced him to music culture first by gifting him a pile of CDs from Bowie and The Rolling Stones.
