Mr Big’s Martin confirms rescheduled tour

Mr Big’s Eric Martin has confirmed the dates for his rescheduled tour.

He was due to play nine acoustic gigs across the UK this month but was forced to pull the plug due to visa issues. The new dates will take place in August next year and he’s added extra cities to the lineup, including Belfast and Dublin.

He says: “My bags are packed (I’m going to leave them packed until August) and I’m ready to go… again. Plane ticket to the UK? Check. Acoustic guitar? Check. Money for beer? Check. Visa? Double check!

“I am so sorry for this mess up. After the amazing journey with Mr Big I was riding tall in the saddle and looking forward to strum out the A chords and belt out the blues with all of you. What a letdown – please let me make it up to you.”

Tickets for the postponed shows will be valid for the new dates, while briefs for the Dublin date go on sale on Friday (December 19) via

Mr Big’s released 8th album …The Stories We Could Tell earlier this year via Frontiers Records and issued tracks Gotta Love The Ride and The Monster In Me from the record. They played a one-off show in London in October to mark the launch.
