It’s always good to kick off the year making plans and so that’s exactly what we’re going to help Andrew’s management do…

Plans are afoot for a new UK tour before too long, but we’ve noticed that every time there’s a tour there are calls to add extra towns or cities.

So this article is your opportunity to add comments with where you think the next UK tour should head – over to you….

  • Hi Andrew

    We would love to see you play in Newcastle, you know that!! The sage is a great venue as you well know, but your more suited to a standing venue so we can rock the place out, so we would prefer to see you play somewhere more suited to your audience.

    The fact is we are really looking forward to your gig in the north east!!

  • Wife and I see you every year. Brilliant.
    What about playing at The Place Telford or The Robin 2 in Bilston.
    See you soon.

  • How about a small venue in Manchester or Liverpool?

    If you get enough interest possibly somewhere in Cumbria? Theres some great gig locations around Kendal and there would be plenty of Roachford fans around!

  • How about back to Australia, it’s been a while!

  • I travelled to see you at 10ft tall in Cardiff last year and Uxbridge the year before, would love to see you play my home town, Dundee, failing that anywhere in the UK!!

  • I voted for Glasgow because that is where Roachford began for me.I say go back to the places that from the beginning welcomed you and treated you good.Second, get to places that never had a chance to see you and of course pick spots geographicaly located to make you available to the most fans.Good luck on tour.

  • Australia…Sydney…the most beautiful city on the planet. PLEASE come and visit and pop around to our house for afternoon tea! Alix’s eccles cakes are to die for!!!!

    Regards from Lugo, Spain

  • Seen you at 10feet tall Cardiff, great gig!!! Looking forward to seeing you later in the year, Cheers

  • Hiya Andy

    Its fantastic venue for all live music

    Google it and look at the artists that appear there

    We are the couple who come to see you at the Academy in Manchester whenever you are there We missed our train last time as you did so many encores. It was the best show I have ever been to I was at the front dancing all blooming night with two old friends of yours
    I got email from your auntie who we met that time at Cavern in Liverpool whose daughter lives in Battersea she was saying you were there at Christmas giving advice on a keyboard for the kids sounded good

  • If you can’t do Tan Hill, how about my back garden?
