We’re delighted to be playing host to acclaimed British soul singer and songwriter JP Cooper here at Future Yard, as part of his first headline tour in almost three years. He will tour across the UK and Ireland from April – May 2022, in support of his highly anticipated second album SHE. JP will be returning to smaller, more intimate venues on this tour, taking in 23 towns and cities; Birkenhead takes centre stage on Sunday 1st May 2022.
JP’s headline tour comes in support of his upcoming album SHE, set for release on 15th October via Island Records. SHE is a collection of songs paying homage to some of the greatest women in JP’s life, with themes around relationships, faith, and family.
Tickets on sale now.
For each ticket purchased, fans will also receive a signed tour poster, souvenir lanyard and exclusive access to a live streamed Q+A with the artist himself.
Speaking about the tour JP says:
“I decided a while ago that because of the pandemic and all of the struggle and separation that everyone has experienced during the last 18 months, I wanted to go back to more grassroots venues on my next tour, back to the kind of places I played when I was coming through. Firstly, to show some love to the venues themselves; they play such an important role in artists’ early careers and a lot of them have struggled to stay afloat during this period.
Secondly, I wanted to play these smaller rooms again to make it easier to connect with you guys and for you to connect with me. We’ve spent so much time apart that it’s going to be amazing to be up close and personal once again. The shows will be more intimate and stripped back, which will give us the opportunity to properly re-connect.”
"I’m so excited to be coming out with the band, some of whom have been with me for years, and to re-create that feeling we used to have when I did the open mic nights and small venue circuits around the UK."
“On this tour, I want to shift the focus to the fans more than ever before, as we have all been through the uncertainty of the pandemic together. I want everyone to feel like a VIP. Cannot wait to get out and see you all.”
