Damian Lewis Rough Trade East Gig + Album Signing

Tattoos and Elvis Guitar Picks

by Gingersnap | | June 19, 2023

Presented by Rough Trade East, Damian performed a stripped back set plus live album signing at the Old Truman Brewery located at 150 Brick Lane in London on Monday, June 19, 2023. His performance started at 8:00 p.m. and the album signing began at 9:00 p.m. This unique event was for 300 lucky attendees celebrating the release of Damian’s debut album Mission Creep. More photos from the event in our Gallery.

We were one of those lucky 300 attendees – with boots on the ground – and we didn’t come empty handed. We gifted Damian with some Elvis Presley guitar picks for Christmas (straight from the Graceland store), but forgot to take them to London to one of his other gigs just before the holiday season. So Damian received the picks today as a Happy Album Release Day gift instead. And believe it or not, Damian used one of the Elvis picks at tonight’s gig! 🙂 Watch video about the Elvis pics below:

As recently as Black Deer Fest, some have noticed Damian sporting tattoos – one on his right pectoral and one on his left bicep. We believe this has to do with his recent filming gig The Radleys, in which Damian plays twin vampires. So don’t be surprised when you spot them in photos. Some of our favorite photos from the event:

Set list included ‘Down on the Bowery,’ ‘My Little One,’ ‘Wanna Grow Old in Paris,’ ‘Never Judge a Man by His Umbrella,’ ‘Makin’ Plans’ and ‘She Comes.’ For the encore Damian played a new original, but did not share the title of the song. Watch the video for that new song in the section below.

After Damian’s performance, he stuck around to autograph vinyl and CD copies of his album for the attendees. Take a look at that line!
