The View to visit Edinburgh on UK tour

The View will wrap up their Hats Off To The Buskers 10th anniversary tour in Edinburgh in May, it has been announced.

The Dundee indie band, who have already booked six nights at King Tut’s in Glasgow next month, have also announced dates in Aberdeen, Manchester, London, Cardiff, Liverpool, Sheffield and Carlisle.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 9am on Friday, 27 January.

The View played three consecutive nights at Edinburgh’s Liquid Room on their last visit to the Capital – and they will return to the Victoria Street venue on Wednesday, 17 May.

The View’s last studio album was 2015’s Ropewalk.

Speaking about the album to AAA on its release, frontman Kyle Falconer said: “I would say that this record has really taken us out of our comfort zone.

“I think it’s our most inventive album yet – we really opened ourselves up to the creative possibilities and, thankfully, the vision paid off.”

Since the record’s release, Falconer has had a stint in rehab.

Last summer, he cancelled his own wedding to enter rehab in Thailand.

The singer revealed that he realised he needed help after he was removed from a flight from Spain to Glasgow in June, which was diverted to France in order for Falconer to be arrested.

He said: “I know for a fact I have a problem. But it’s hard to bite your tongue sometimes and straight away I start blaming everyone else. I say ‘They’re as bad as me’, but they’re not the people needing to go to rehab.”
