Back by popular demand, Travis will play their classic, second album The Man Who live in full for limited runs this June and December.
The album was released over 19 years ago but still sounds as fresh as today. It’s one of the most successful British albums in the last 20 years. It includes timeless singles such as Writing To Reach You, Driftwood and the band’s most iconic song Why Does It Always Rain On Me?
Produced by Nigel Godrich, The Man Who spent an outstanding 11 weeks at number one, selling almost 3 million copies. It was also the biggest selling album of 2000 after an incendiary performance at Glastonbury in the pouring rain.
Singer and guitarist Fran Healy claimed that ‘songs are like emotional bookmarks in time. When you hear a song, you are transported to those times and feel strong echoes of feelings you felt’. This is the overwhelming feeling you gain from listening to the album as a whole.
Travis gained recognition including Ivor Novello awards for ‘Best Songwriter and ‘Best Contemporary Song’ for Why Does It Always Rain On Me and a BRIT award for Best British Band and Best British Album.
The band will perform a handful of special venues over the course of the year including London’s Royal Festival Hall and Glasgow the SSE Hydro, amongst many more. Tickets went on sale on the 2nd of March.
