World tour ends at Club85

Just back from a 150 date world tour, self-proclaimed psychedelic folkster Stuart O’Connor plays in Hitchin tomorrow night (Friday).

The singer-guitarist will perform with his band at Club85 along with The October Game, Spandex Ballet and Philip Storey.

The musician has been touring his 16-track Good Times with Evil album across the globe over the last nine and a half months performing in Japan, New Zealand, Australia and Thailand.

“I’ve toured every time I’ve had a record out,” he said. “Each time I’ve added another country.

“Every time touring its a mixed bag, you don’t know what to expect when you go to a venue. On the whole it was reallly good. CDs sold really well. I had to ship more out, which was a logistical nightmare when you are on the road!

“I did a lot of gigs with other musicians. It’s really nice to share that vibe with people. I loved it.

He added that he is really looking forward to the Hitchin gig.
