Jimmy Eat World’s Adkins in solo tour

Jimmy Eat World frontman Jim Adkins will play four solo acoustic UK shows in September, as part of month-long European tour.

It takes place while the band take abreak following 2014’s Futures 10th anniversary road trip.

Adkins says: “Toward the end of our last European tour, I decided to play a solo show in Berlin. I thought, ‘Hey this is pretty different and fun – I could keep going.’ So why not?

“I will be touring with myself and a guitar, playing new solo material, Rock Band songs, no Free Bird.

“I’m trying to get to places I haven’t been to in a long time, or maybe ever. Looking forward to the adventure!”

Adkins is launching a string of solo singles, with one appearing every week between July 10 and August 14. All six digital titles will be pressed on limited edition vinyl and released on September 11. I Will Go arrived last week while Everly Brothers cover _Give Me A Sweetheart _appeared today. They’re followed by Love Don’t Wait (July 24), Don’t Act Like Your Heart Isn’t Hard (July 31), Hell (August 7) and_ Girls Just Want To Have Fun_ (August 14).
