Ray Davies will be performing a limited amount of intimate venues next year for his new show entitled “Americana:Songs, Stories and Home Movies’. The show will feature Ray with his guitarist, Bill Shanley, as an acoustic duo performing songs featured in his new book, Americana, as well as some classic Kinks tracks. He will also be reading passages from his book, telling stories and showing film footage shot on his 2001 US tour directly after 9-11. This will be the first time Ray has toured the UK as an acoustic duo since his Storyteller shows over ten years ago. Some of the songs will never have been heard live before. His book Americana follows from the Kinks first tour of the US in 1964 up to his time spent in New Orleans 40 years later.
