Blimey, it’s Sean Rowe!
Sublimely soulful singer-songwriter Sean Rowe would like to apologize to his Nippertown fans who were hoping to catch him in action at Brown’s Brewing Company in Troy on Friday night. He’s very sorry, but he won’t be able to be there.
Rowe was forced to cancel the gig at the last minute – because he’s going to be out of the country.
In the United Kingdom, to be exact.
For 20 days.
As the opening act for hip London-based band Noah and the Whale.
The tour begins on Sunday, September 27 in Gateshead and concludes in Birmingham on Friday, October 16. In between, the tour will make stops in London, Manchester, Cambridge, Glasgow and numerous other cities.
Noah and the Whale are touring in support of their new album, “The First Days of Spring,” which is slated for U.S. release on Tuesday, October 6.
When Rowe’s latest album, the aptly titled “Magic,” was released on Collar City Records back in April, it landed him rave reviews and some prestigious opening act gigs around town – with the Doobie Brothers at the Palace Theatre and with Boz Scaggs at The Egg – but nothing quite on this scale.
Check back for Rowe’s reports from the road.
