Ian Siegal has confirmed a run of UK dates as part of his 25th anniversary tour later this year, playing songs from across his 11-album catalogue.

It’s to be tied in with the release of a deluxe retrospective package, with details to be revealed in due course.

His label, Nugene Music, say: “His first professional gig with the embryonic Ian Siegal Band was in the early 90s, when blues was decidedly unfashionable. Gaining a presence as a 20-year-old singing the blues was not easy. Thankfully, he persevered.

“You gotta pay your dues to the blues – and he certainly has. From busking on the streets of Berlin as a teenage, to gruelling three-hours-a-night club residencies, to hair-raising treks across Eastern Europe, his CV includes shows in 35 countries, guest appearances with some of the great names of the blues, and a live album recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall.”

Noting that all Siegal’s 13 award wins have come in the past five years, the label add: “There’s a lot left in the tank.”

His UK dates in November are in addition to previously-announced shows across Europe.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
