After an exhausting 2018, The Coral show no sign of slowing up in the New Year, Getintothis’ Steven Doherty has all the details.
They spent 2018 releasing a new album, supporting the Manic Street Preachers, and garnering rave reviews at both summer festival dates and their own Autumn tour, and the cannonball of psychedelic pop that is The Coral are not letting up in 2019, with the announcement of another set of UK dates.
The Hoylake stalwarts will be ably supported on all dates by Cut Glass Kings and Marvin Powell (both already signed to the band’s Skeleton Key label), with the dates in further support of their Top 20 return-to-form album Move Through The Dawn.
After their barnstorming Liverpool University gig last time out, there’s no Merseyside date this time, the North-West leg being the criminally underused Warrington Parr Hall on Saturday March 16.
Having recently celebrated selling over a million albums in the UK alone, as well as the recent release of keyboard player Nick Power’s latest book Into The Void, in which he gives a first-hand account of life in The Coral, both on tour and in the studio, these are busy, exciting times for the boys.
The Coral will play:
February 27 – Brighton Concorde
March 1 – Norwich Waterfront
March 2 – Oxford O2 Academy
March 7 – Glasgow Oran Mor
March 8 – Middlesborough Empire
March 9 – Stoke Sugarmill
March 16 – Warrington Parr Hall
