Beans On Toast, is heading back to the UK live circuit in May with his ‘Bending Over Backwards’ tour with fellow acoustic music-mate Benjamin Folke Thomas as worthy support. Tickets (on sale Friday 23/01/15) and full dates can be found at our gigs calendar.
With his most successful year yet behind him, having conquered his biggest ever headline show at Camden’s Electric Ballroom in December to rave reviews, 2014 will take something to beat but with Beans being Beans, he’s got even more up his sleeve for 2015.
In spring, Beans will once again be exporting stateside for his most extensive US tour yet, which will see him play various clubs, bars, front rooms and even a luxury cruise liner as he performs intimate skiffle shows, headlines his own gigs, supports Truckstop Honeymoon and joins the Flogging Molly’s Salty Dog Cruise from Miami to the Bahamas! Beans will also be playing his first ever show in Africa and indeed the southern hemisphere as he visits Afrikaburn Festival in South Africa over the last weekend of April.
In 2014, Beans On Toast smashed an extensive arena tour supporting folk-punk friend Frank Turner, broke America with his first ever-stateside shows and kept crowds entertained at over 18 festivals throughout the summer.
In addition to these milestones, his sixth studio album The Grand Scheme of Things was hailed as his best and most mature yet, taking in meatier subjects such as chicken farming, terrorism and the home cooking of new wife Lizzy Bee, which ensured over a third of his December live dates were complete sell outs. With life certainly on the up for Beans On Toast, there are still some things that don’t change and that’s his self-deprecating witty style, which has been anything but lost along the way.
