Tickets for the following live shows are available now. Following these tour dates, VANT is scheduled to appear at SXSW 2017 in Austin, TX. TGTF’s previous coverage of VANT, including editor Mary’s interview with Mattie Vant from last November, is collected right through here.

Beans on Toast / November and December 2016 UK Tour

 
By on Wednesday, 16th November 2016 at 9:00 am
 

Later this week, Essex folk singer/songwriter Beans on Toast (known offstage as Jay McAllister) will close out 2016 with his annual winter tour of the UK. The tour centers around Beans on Toast’s forthcoming 8th album ‘A Spanner in the Works’ which will be released on the 1st of December via Xtra Mile Recordings. The album features an ode to the year almost-gone-by, simply titled ‘2016’. McAllister says of the track: “It might not be the cheeriest Beans on Toast song ever, but sadly it’s been that kind of year.” You can watch the promo video for ‘2016’ just below the tour date listing, along with the brand new video for album track ‘We Made It to the Waterfall’.

The Beans on Toast Winter 2016 tour will begin and end in London, with the final show billed as a “Big London Party” at Omeara, a new venue owned by Mumford and Sons‘ Ben Lovett. Tickets for the following shows are available now and selling quickly, according to Beans on Toast’s official Facebook.
