Just after the release of his debut album Mission Creep on June 16, 2023 and on the heels of playing Black Deer Festival and Rough Trade East, Damian returned to the stage with his fantastic band for a show at Union Chapel in London on Tuesday, July 11, 2023, with opening gig and supporting act from the brilliant Christy O’Donnell. The 14-song set included Down on the Bowery, Zaragoza, Hole in My Roof, Soho Tango, Harvest Moon, Never Judge a Man by His Umbrella, Werewolves of London, Wanna Grow Old in Paris, new song Fate, Makin’ Plans, Why, She Comes, with encore performances of After Midnight and his new song She Makin’ Me Change.
Before beginning his new song She Makin’ Me Change, he said, “Manon and Gully, if you’re out there, I love you.” Others in the audience were his siblings Gareth, William and Amanda, as well as Sharmila Collins of Cure EB, Debbi Clark of Sir HvH Arts, members from the Fan Fun with Damian Lewis team and Damian’s former drama school teacher Kenneth Rea, whom Damian wrote the foreword to his book The Outstanding Actor. Family and friends gathered for an afterparty at Islington’s late night music pub, The Grace. View more images and videos from the event in our Gallery.
