Scottish rock band Travis, whose iconic album The Man Who was the soundtrack to 2000 for many, will play a date in Kent as part of a comeback tour.
The album, which spent 11 weeks at No.1 and sold almost 3 million copies, spawned the timeless singles Writing To Reach You, Driftwood, Turn and, arguably their most memorable Why Does It Always Rain On Me.
They will play the now classic album at two limited runs in June and December, coming to Folkestone on Thursday, June 14.
“Songs are like emotional bookmarks in time,” said frontman Fran Healy. “When you hear a song you are transported to those times and feel strong echoes of the feelings you felt. Rarely does an album have this ability so performing The Man Who once again will be a joy!”
Produced by Nigel Godrich, The Man Who was the biggest selling UK album in 2000, propelled by an incendiary Glastonbury performance - in the rain. It also earned the band Ivor Novello Awards for Best Songwriter and Best Contemporary Song for Why Does It Always Rain On Me? and BRIT Awards for Best British Band and Best British Album.
Their date at Folkestone's Leas Cliff Hall is one of a select few venues chosen, including London’s Royal Festival Hall two days earlier.
To date Travis have sold more than 8 million record sales and released their latest album Everything At Once in 2016.
The line-up is singer/guitarist Fran, bassist Dougie Payne, guitarist Andy Dunlop and drummer Neil Primrose.
