Following their chart success on Sunday with their second single Taking Over Me storming in at number three, Lawson have announced that they will be undertaking a very special tour this Autumn – stopping off at all of their home-towns.

Starting at lead singer Andy’s hometown of Liverpool, the tour continues onto Sheffield (Ryan), Brighton (Adam), Nottingham (Joel) and finishing with London’s KOKO for their biggest headline show to date.

Lawson have had a very busy summer with T4 On The Beach, Hard Rock Calling, BT London Live, they rocked the games at the Olympic Volleyball, T In The Park, V Festival and the release of their incredible top three smash Taking Over Me. Now it’s time for them to make a few trips home, but the guys are by no means slowing down!

The Hometowns Tour is giving Andy, Adam, Ryan and Joel the opportunity to play an intimate gig in the individual cities they grew up in. Lawson will be travelling the country this October and November through Liverpool, Sheffield, Brighton, Nottingham and then finish off by playing their biggest ever headline show to date at London’s KoKo.

Guitarist Joel Peat said: “We’re all so excited to release our debut album, we’ve been building up to it for the past 4 years so doing shows in our home-towns feels like the perfect way to celebrate. Performing live is what we love the most so to be able to play our biggest venues to date in the Cities where we grew up is very special.”
