PJ Harvey will play 17 headline dates across Europe later this year, including a show in Manchester.

Following the April release of her UK #1 album The Hope Six Demolition Project, PJ Harvey returned to the world stage last month for the first time in 4 years, starting a summer of festival shows with an acclaimed headline performance at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound, ahead of headlining both London’s Field Day and Glastonbury Festival. Harvey is deservedly considered to be one of Britain’s most innovative and important recording artists, and NME recently called her“one of the world’s finest performers – commanding, contemplative and absolutely flawless.”

Directed by renowned British theatre director Ian Rickson, dressed by Ann Demeulemeester, and with lighting by Adam Silverman and set design by multi-media artist Jeremy Herbert, the show is receiving exceptional reviews around the world. “Harvey’s spectacular festival show has had everyone talking,” writes Shortlist. From the moment the 10 strong band march onto the stage playing their instruments, the audience is transported into a truly unique concert experience; powerful, enchanting, thought provoking, joyous, and beautifully crafted, filled with songs that are a reflection of our times. Harvey is joined by long-time collaborators John Parish, Mick Harvey, and Jean-Marc Butty, and friends Alain Johannes, Terry Edwards, James Johnston, Kenrick Rowe, Alessandro Stefana and Enrico Gabrielli.
