Unfortunately this show has now been cancelled. Refunds are available from point of purchase. Statement from Alfie below:
I’m VERY sad to say we’re having to cancel the upcoming UK tour for April/May .
I’m desperate to see you all and play live and I really didn’t want to give up on these dates, so I’ve been hanging on in the hope that things might improve in time for these shows, but sadly it’s looking impossible. All tickets will be refunded on request from the ticket company you bought from.
I’m definitely going to get another tour sorted soon but don’t want to put them on sale until I’m very confident that they can take place safely and without being postponed, there’s just too much uncertainty around for all of us! So please keep your eyes peeled as I’ll make sure the people who bought tickets already will be the first people who get access to tickets for the new dates.
Your love and support for me and my music during this time is so much appreciated – can’t wait to see you at a gig when we get it all figured out!
Lots of other good news to come very soon though so watch this space…
Big love, stay safe.
17 year-old Bedfordshire songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Alfie Templeman was born in a household blessed with musical talent – his sister is a pianist and plays trumpet, his dad is a zealous collector of guitars with more than twenty instruments scattered around at home – and it was inevitable that the curious young Alfie would ask for drum lessons aged just seven years old, having taken to rock and indie music avidly. Inspired by the rolling countryside around Carlton, the skies that passed across his window at night, and the flowers that would bloom in spring on the village green, Templeman began recording snippets of guitar, bass and drums – but never vocals – which would become his first ever formative demos. It wasn’t long before he’d taught himself to use more advanced studio software and in 2016, aged just 13 years-old, he decided to throw himself into bringing to life fully formed tracks – before and after his school classes and shifts helping out on building sites (“I kept having coughing fits the whole time. Never again,” he adds). Adding a finishing touch – his elegant, honeyed drawl – these early forays into production have been refined right up to the release of his debut single and EP of the same name ‘Like An Animal’ in October 2018.
