JOHN MARTYN has lined up three major British concerts with his new band – at Birmingham Odeon May (21), Brighton Dome (22) and London Tottenham-Court Road Dominion (23) – and these will be followed by Irish gigs in Dublin (26), Cork (27) and Limerick (28). Tickets for the London show have a top price of £4, while elsewhere the maximum is £3.50.
Martyn’s new outfit comprises Jeff Allen (drums), Alan Thomson (bass), Max Middleton (keyboards) and Danny Cummings (percussion) – and early next month he leaves, with the band, for his first tour of North America in four years.
