EUROPEAN TOUR WITH WAYNE HUSSEY
[2 AUG 2019]
I am delighted to confirm that I will be supporting Wayne Hussey (The Mission) on the European dates of his upcoming Salad Daze Tour! We’ll be playing over 30 shows across Europe together from 3 September - 16 October 2019. It will be absolutely wonderful touring with Wayne again. The Mission were a significant influence on the genesis of The Awakening and Wayne has remained an inspiration in my artistic life. I am also blessed to call him a friend.
From Wayne: "I met Ashton and that beautiful baritone voice of his a few years back and we have since remained friends and supporters of each other's work. Of course we both also continue to be heavily involved with Michael Ciravolo's 'Beauty In Chaos' project. So it is with huge pleasure I can confirm that Ashton will be supporting me on the mainland Europe (except Greece & Sweden) leg of my 'Salad Daze' tour. It'll be great to have him along for the ride. Bring your driving license, Ashton, you can share the driving, there's an awful lot of it."
Please see Tour for more info.
