Howard Jones and friends are bringing their acoustic show to East Anglia

by Adam Aiken

Howard Jones is setting out on a stripped-down tour this autumn that will include a handful of shows in East Anglia.

His acoustic trio’s 13-date road trip will stop at The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, on Sunday, October 16.

The trio is completed by Robin Boult (Roger Daltrey, Fish) on guitar and Nick Beggs (Kajagoogoo, Belinda Carlisle, John Paul Jones) on Chapman stick.

The shows will feature songs from throughout Jones’s career as well as giving fans the chance to hear about some of the inspirations he’s had along the way, as well as recollections from his international touring adventures.

The tour – which will include support from singer-songwriter Roxanne de Bastion – comes following the release of Transform, Jones’s first new studio album in nearly a decade, which came out just before the start of the pandemic.

“I’m really excited about the trio tour we have planned,” he said.

“Nick and Robin are dear friends and world-class musicians and I love performing with them. After touring the trio in America, I thought the time was right for us to bring the fun of this acoustic show back home.”

Jones burst onto the scene with his synth-pop in 1983, and he has since sold more than eight million albums.

He has promised that the upcoming tour will include “deep cuts and fan favourites” alongside the hits.
