On December 14th The Wildhearts set out on a 5 date UK tour, including Ginger’s Annual Birthday Bash at the O2 Forum in London on December 17th.
The Wildhearts, with the line up of Ginger and CJ on guitars and vocals, bassist Jon Poole and Ritch Battersby on drums, continuing to hold firm, are supported by Danny McCormack’s band The Main Grains and Dirt Box Disco. With the exception of Manchester, where it will be Hey! Hello! in place of Dirt Box Disco and Ginger’s Annual Birthday Bash in London, which features a formidable seven bands.
On top of this Danny will be joining The Wildhearts each night for a few songs on the encore.
These shows have led Ginger to exclaim……….
“It’s going to be another very messy Xmas, with me and the lads playing non-stop party songs from throughout our career. And I’m especially looking forward to sharing a stage with Danny again. These shows will be a celebration of life, and it brings together two people who should be dead by now. The Birthday Bash is particularly insane this year, featuring a seven band bill.
All in all, it’s gonna be a cool yule.”
The impressive cast supporting The Wildhearts at Ginger’s Birthday Bash is – Dirt Box Disco, Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind, Hey! Hello!, The Dowling Poole, The Main Grains and Elvana.
