The guitarist has lined up a total of nine shows, kicking off at the SEC Armadillo in Glasgow on May 17, and wrapping up with two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall on May 26 and 27.

Beck will also visit Birmingham, York, Gateshead, Manchester, Sheffield and Cardiff with his band featuring drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, bassist Rhonda Smith and cellist Vanessa Freebairn-Smith.

Tickets for all nine shows will go on sale this coming Friday (February 14) at 10am GMT via MyTicket.

Beck’s last studio album was 2016’s Loud Hailer, with the live album Jeff Beck: Live At The Hollywood Bowl launching in 2017.

Beck is currently working on new material, with an album due later in 2020 on a date still to be confirmed. It'll be released through Rhino/Warner Records.
