Never miss another 'Ben Howard' show
Ben Howard + John Smith
Ben Howard has announced details of string of new European live dates for the summer, including his biggest shows in the UK to date.
The double Brit Award winner will headline the Blackpool Empress Ballroom on the 11th June, followed by London Hammersmith Apollo on the 12th and 13th June.
This young singer/songwriter has accrued a hardcore fanbase by word-of-mouth, selling out shows both at home and across Europe. Raised by music-loving parents, Ben was introduced to the singer/songwriters of the '60s and '70s, with influences such as Nick Drake and John Martyn shining through on his critically acclaimed debut album 'Every Kingdom'.

John Smith's mesmerising percussive guitar and storytelling has been winning fans everywhere. Whether it be playing the guitar lap-style like a drum, detuning the strings mid-chorus or just straight-forward rumbling fingerstyle, the Devon man's
playing has prompted both hushed appreciation and riotous standing ovations.
'John Smith again demonstrates why he is the guitarists’ guitarist. His steel-strung acoustic playing adding a beguiling complexity to songs that possess a sharp communicative clarity and directness' (The Sunday Times)
'A man with one of those rattling hearts. It's a true heart. It's a hurt heart' (Daytrotter)
'Songs that impress with the beauty of John's guitar work and intertwined vocals. Staggeringly good' (Acoustic)
'Beyond beautiful' (Jo Whiley, Radio 2).
