Following on from Robert Jon & The Wreck’s triumphant September 2021 UK tour where the band sold out five concerts in London, Manchester, Nottingham, Edinburgh and Sittingbourne, the band will return to the UK for a 12-date tour in May 2022.

Planet Rock will run an exclusive 48-hour ticket pre-sale from 9am on Wednesday October 13th here. Tickets will then go on general sale at 9am on Friday October 15th here

The news of the 2022 UK tour follows the release of the band’s critically acclaimed new studio album “Shine A Light On Me Brother”.

The album features the hit singles “Shine A Light On Me Brother” and “Everyday”, infectious blues rock anthems that have been getting spins on UK radio stations including Planet Rock, BBC Radio 2, Radio Caroline, The Max, Total Rock, HRH, MMH, ERB, and many more. The new single “Ain’t No Young Love Song” is out soon.

Says the Wreck’s frontman, Robert Jon Burrison: “Our recent single, Everyday’ is an all-out good-time jam track that was born out of frustration due to lack of freedoms that we had grown used to pre-pandemic and were subsequently denied during lockdown. It’s about the desire to get together with friends, play music, have some beers, and just spend time with each other in person again. This track is one to be listened to on repeat and sung along to”. 

“Shine A Light On Me Brother” is available on CD, vinyl, limited edition deluxe coloured vinyl, and limited edition bundles including signed deluxe edition vinyl, ltd edition t-shirt, signed CD, retro California vanity plates, and signed limited edition photos of Robert Jon & The Wreck. The album is available here.
