Following the release of her 4th studio album in April, Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum singer-songwriter Michelle Branch has announced 3 UK dates for September, including a show at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on the 29th.
‘Hopeless Romantic’ is Michelle’s first solo album in 14 years since the Grammy-nominated ‘Hotel Paper’ and includes the beautifully vulnerable single ‘Fault Line’ a co-write by Michelle and Morgan Kibby from M83. The Sun said the album was ‘her most accomplished work to date’.
Michelle played her first ever London headline show at a sold-out Lexington in March with an all-star band, which included The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, who also co-produced the album; Beck bassist (and album co-producer) Gus Seyffert; Killers guitarist Jake Blanton; and Sturgill Simpson’s keyboard player Bobby Emmett.
Patrick Carney joins her again on this fall tour in the UK, which will find her in Glasgow, Manchester and London.
Sept 26th GLASGOW, King Tuts

Pre-sale begins on May 31 for all three shows, with general on-sale beginning June 2.

She followed it up with 2003’s platinum selling ‘Hotel Paper’, before winning a Grammy for singing on Carlos Santana’s “The Game of Love”. In 2006, Michelle found success with modern-country duo The Wreckers alongside Jessica Harp, their debut ‘Stand Still, Look Pretty’ was praised by critics.
