by Mick Burgess | The Northern Echo | September 21, 2023

Damian Lewis might be best known for his starring roles in Wolf Hall, Homeland and Billions, to name a few, but he is also a talented musician who’s just released his first album, Mission Creep. Mick Burgess called him for a chat ahead of his tour visiting the region next month.

How do you feel ahead of your first ever tour?
I can’t wait to get started, I’m really excited. I’ve played at a few festivals and done a lot of London gigs in the last year, but I’m so excited to play at these venues with a wonderful heritage and I’m really looking forward to getting out there to play my new album, Mission Creep.

UK Tour: Fourth Show

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | September 17, 2023

Damian and his brilliant band played show number four of their UK Tour in Bristol at Thekla on Sunday, September 17, 2023 in support of his debut album Mission Creep. Set list included Zaragoza, Soho Tango, My Little One, She Comes, Down on the Bowery, Hole in My Roof, Why?, Makin’ Plans and more. After his song Why? he played a brand new song titled Traffic Jam. Lucky audience! He also played his new song Pentonville Prison, which he recently introduced at previous gigs. For encores Damian and band played a cover of After Midnight, as well as his third new song She Makin’ Me Change. His opening act was his current band member, and newly signed to Sunday Best Recordings artist,  Kitty Liv – you can find out more about her music here.

Tonight’s venue, Thekla, is a cargo ship converted to a music venue, moored in the Mud Dock area of Bristol’s Floating Harbour, England. The showboat was based on the idea of creating, owning, and running a theatre on a sea-going ship and using it to showcase music of every sort (limited only by the size of the hold), including cabaret, comedy, plays, musicals, and poetry events. The ship also contained an art gallery.

It’s not too late to see Damian and his band play live – get all the information about his upcoming tour dates and ticket outlets here. Check out more photos and videos from the Bristol gig in our Gallery, from meal prep and sound check to their performance on stage.

Damian Lewis: Town Hall, Birmingham – Live Review

Swapping Billions for Ballads

by Sam Lambeth | Louder Than War | September 15, 2023

Damian Lewis bounds onstage with the aura of a rockstar – lithe, agile and sartorially accurate (all black, desert boots, nifty waistcoat). “When I was last in Birmingham, the Birmingham Post gave me a scathing review,” he laughs. “I’m hoping tonight’s reviews will be kinder.”

He does have cause for trepidation, don’t forget. Actors venturing into music have often found themselves hitting a dead end, with even the most casual music fan ready to pour scorn. Thankfully, Lewis’ debut album sees him enter the Hugh Laurie category, as opposed to the dark and musty files of Russell Crowe.

by Naomi Clarke| Evening Standard | August 13, 2023

Damian Lewis has announced extra dates for the upcoming tour of his debut album, Mission Creep, due to popular demand. The 52-year-old British actor, best known for starring in TV dramas including Band Of Brothers and Homeland, is taking his new band on the road for the first time this autumn.

He has now extended the eight-show run by adding a further three shows in Basingstoke, Eastleigh and Milton Keynes in November.

Lewis said: “I can’t wait to get out on the road with my band this autumn for our first UK tour.

“We’ve played London, we’ve played New York, but now we’re getting serious and bringing the music to the great towns and cities of Gateshead, Nottingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff and many more.

“And, am I allowed to say this, ‘due to popular demand’, we’ve just added three more dates at the start of November so, all of you in Basingstoke, Eastleigh and Milton Keynes, get your glad rags on.”

The tour is due to kick off on September 9 in Nottingham before heading to Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol, Brighton and Manchester – and then playing shows shows in Leeds and Gateshead in October.
