TOM MEIGHAN, who is currently in the studio busy writing his second solo album, announces 20-date March 2024 Acoustic Tour. These intimate shows will be the first time that Tom has ever toured acoustically. These dates follow three electric headline shows in December and a UK Arena Tour with Noel Gallagher.
Tom Meighan released his first solo album The Reckoning, in May. It hit the Official midweek chart at #2, behind Ed Sheeran. It charted at #2 in the Indie chart, #3 in the Vinyl chart, #3 in the Download chart, #3 in the Physical Artist chart and #6 in the CD chart and #17 in the Official chart. He shared five tracks prior to its release - title track The Reckoning, Everyone’s Addicted To Something, Movin’ On, Shout It Out and one of Tom’s earliest solo tracks and a live favourite with fans Would You Mind, which is featured on the deluxe album. He went on to share the video for album track Don’t Give In and most recently released The Summer Sessions, two new tracks that didn’t quite make it onto the album.
Earlier this year he played a 16-date UK tour (including here at Docks!), has performed at various festivals throughout the summer and he supported Noel Gallagher at Audley End on 5th August.
It’s been 20 years since Tom Meighan signed his first record deal with Kasabian at the age of 21. He sold four million albums, celebrated 5 consecutive number-one albums and was awarded, amongst many others, a BRIT Award, 7 NME Awards, 5 Q Magazine Awards, a Mojo Award and a Music Week Award. He headlined Glastonbury, V Festival and Reading and Leeds twice, along with most other major European music festivals.
Tom’s troubles have been well-documented since he departed Kasabian three years ago. Addiction, remorse, recovery, redemption are themes that run deep on Tom’s magnificent solo album. Whatever the reasons he didn’t contribute to the songwriting in Kasabian, it wasn’t down to lack of talent. The confidence and ability to sing an earworm with passion and charm remain in Tom’s new songs. What’s new are a broad range of styles. In addition to the rock power and bulletproof bangers of his former band, there is a blissed-out euphoria, a tenderness and a lyrical depth resulting from a period of self-reflection and emotional maturity.
A born frontman with an unmatched ability to get a crowd jumping, Tom’s sights are firmly set on the future.
Joining Tom in his band are keyboardist/guitarist Bnann Infadel, bassist Ele Lucas, lead guitarist Chris Haddon, guitarist Brodie Maguire and drummer Gareth Young.
