We’re thrilled to announce another string of UK tour dates for Toria Garbutt and Dr John Cooper Clarke. One of the best-loved and most iconic spoken word artists in the UK, Dr JCC has been winning audiences’ hearts and minds since he burst onto the punk scene in the mid-late ’70s.
Late last year, he published ‘The Luckiest Man Alive’ with Picador, which was his first poetry collection in decades. These tour dates feature content from the new book plus some of his old classics.
Toria has been regularly supporting The Bard of Salford since April 2017, and is rapidly establishing herself on the UK’s flourishing spoken word scene as a result. Copies of her début album ‘Hot Plastic Moon‘ will be on sale at the dates, as well as her début collection ‘The Universe and Me’.
One of the most electrifying duos on the UK spoken word scene continue to hit the road together, as Toria Garbutt announces some more tour dates with the iconic Bard of Salford himself, Dr John Cooper Clarke.
Toria has been touring with Dr JCC since last spring, and it’s safe to say that she’s been going down a storm with his audiences. You’ll be able to purchase copies of Toria’s debut album ‘Hot Plastic Moon‘, as well as her debut poetry collection ‘The Universe and Me’.
Following a successful run at last summer’s Edinburgh Fringe, and some one-offs culminating at Roundhouse’s Last Word Festival, Matt Abbott‘s ‘Two Little Ducks’ show is set to embark on a 22-date UK theatre tour.
The tour will be accompanied by a collection on Verve Poetry Press, which is available to pre-order here. Copies of the book and also a new album will be available on all of the tour dates, which are listed below.
