Neighbours star invites you to join him on his 12th musical tour of the UK

Neighbours actor and Americana musician Alan Fletcher, best known for his role as Dr. Karl Kennedy, is bringing his latest tour to London in July.

On July 11th he will play at The Bedford, Balham with a full band.

The Australian entertainer has become a household name after almost 30 years in the same role on Ramsey Street – he is the longest-running character on the soap.

And alongside his commitment to the show he continues to showcase his talent as an all-round entertainer with new music and his latest tour, Alan Fletcher and Special Friends.

His comedic new single, ‘For The Love of Lager’ was released on June 21 as he prepares to hit the pub with fans all over the UK & Ireland when the tour begins next month.

He said: “I chose this way of life when I was a teenager, I always wanted to be a successful creative and after all these years I still have the same love of what I do and the connection to people.

“For the Love of Lager is a love letter from me as an Aussie beer drinker to others who know what they love and they love what they know. I can’t wait to take it on the road and have a laugh with the crowds.

On tour I love the personal engagement with the fans and meeting them at my gigs is part of the experience. We share the excitement in the build up , I invite fans to tell me which venue they will be coming to via Facebook. I know some fans’ birthdays and when they got married. That relationship is special to me.”

Alan’s upcoming 19-date tour is set to kick off at The Bedford on July 11, before he heads to the other 18 venues.

He’ll end the tour with one of his first UK festival appearances at Kendal Calling alongside Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Paolo Nutini and Craig Charles (Aug 3).

Support on all headline shows comes from Riley Catherall.

Alan added: “This time around I have a full band and that’s really changing the vibe. We are visiting some exceptional venues and cities.

My wife, Jennifer Hansen, is playing keyboard and I’m looking forward to exploring the UK together once again. When we’re not on the motorway we want to go exploring but it will be a squeeze with almost 20 gigs in 24 days.

The whole band is fantastic and very talented, if there is a problem on tour we fix it together. “I feel blessed to be performing and meeting with fans after all these years. The measure for me is the moment you stop enjoying it you just stop. But I can’t see that day coming for me.”

Tickets for the tour are on sale now, and fans are encouraged to secure their spots early. For tickets and more information about Alan Fletcher’s UK tour, visit his official website here.
