Following a series of sold out shows in May, former Supergrass star Gaz Coombes has announced more UK tour dates for October 2018.

And this time Gaz and his band will play Sheffield.

Gaz shot to fame as the frontman of alt-rock trio Supergrass, who enjoyed a string of top-20 hits in the Britpop era of the mid-late Nineties with tracks such as 1995 breakthrough-hit Alright, Going Out, Richard III, Sun Hits the Sky, Moving, Grace and Pumping on Your Stereo.

The 42-year-old, from Oxford, launched a solo career after the demise of Supergrass in 2010, after 17 years and six albums, all of which made the top-20, with debut I Should Coco topping the charts back in 1995.

Gaz released his third solo album, top-20 hit World’s Strongest Man, last month and has now announced an autumn tour which includes a show at Sheffield’s Foundry on Saturday, October 27.

Wounded Egos - the third track the album – is online now.

A video for the track has been made from footage shot on and around Gaz’s recent run of UK dates by a crack team of crew, mates, band members and managers.

Tickets to the autumn tour go on sale tomorrow, Friday, June 22, at 9am, from gigsandtours.com
