As the multitude of quotes about her new album suggest, Kate Nash has burst back onto the UK music scene with her second album ‘My Best Friend Is You’ bigger and bolder than ever. Since its worldwide release at the end of April Kate has circumnavigated the world and along the way she has won over the hearts and minds of critics and fans across the US, through mainland Europe and later this summer she will be hitting Australia.
October 2010 will see Kate Nash take the album out onto the road for its first full tour of duty in the UK, culminating with a return to home turf in London at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. It comes on the back an already sold-out European tour. Kate has also a full UK festival schedule this summer including performances at Glastonbury, iTunes, T in the Park, Oxegen and V Festivals. The third single from the album, a stand out track called ‘Later On’ will also be released to coincide with the tour.

Plus support from Brigitte Aphrodite:
Whilst growing up in the grey suburbs of Bromley, through her early teenage years she always felt like a bit of an outsider, this inspired her to indulge in an obsession over androgynous music superstars like Jarvis Cocker and David Bowie, which fueled Brigitte’s passion for cocktail sipping in Soho, and wearing too much red lipstick.
