Proud Mary head to King Tuts this Saturday

The Manchester band will play 'The Same Old Blues' in its entirety in celebration of the album's 20th Anniversary

Manchester band Proud Mary is set to hit King Tuts Wah Wah Hut this Saturday 25th of September, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their debut album ' Same Old Blues'.

King Tuts Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow is the last stop on the bands tour, which saw them visit, London, Leeds, Preston and Cardiff, with their penultimate show, their homecoming at Manchester's Gorilla taking place on Friday the 24th of September

The show will see the band play their debut album from start to finish, which will include the singles "All Good Things” and “Very Best Friend” as well as their cover of "Salt of the Earth" by The Rolling Stones.

'The Same Old Blues’ was released on Noel Gallagher’s Sour Mash records in the summer of 2001. While drawing influence from the canons of Dylan, The Rolling Stones and The Faces, singer Greg Griffin’s hair-on-end vocals and Paul Newsome’s accomplished songwriting stood out and showcased their unique style as musicians.

Written in just ten days and produced by Gallagher with assistance of Gem Archer, the album was a hit with press and public alike. Catapulting them into a hectic touring schedule, the Manchester quintet soon found themselves supporting the likes of Oasis, Neil Young, The Stereophonics, Paul Weller and Ocean Colour Scene.

Now, two decades later, with five albums under their belt, the band will now be revisiting those songs that made it all happen when they take Glasgow by storm this Saturday.
