John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest have announced a UK and German tour for later this year.

The run of 17 shows will take place throughout October and November, with the tour set to begin at Buxton’s Opera House on October 4 and conclude with a set at Wuppertal’s Stadthalle on November 6.

The tour will follow the band’s show at Manchester’s Royal Northern College Of Music Theatre on May 6, which has been set up to celebrate 50 years since the launch of the first Barclay James Harvest single Early Morning.

That evening’s performance will be filmed for a future CD/DVD release, with a date still to be announced.

A statement reads: “The autumn tour will see the band play classic Barclay James Harvest material, alongside songs from their 2013 album North and material from their forthcoming new studio album, which is due for release in early October.”
