Yann Tiersen returns to the UK for the first date since his sold out Roundhouse show and Jeff Mangum’s ATP for a main stage Saturday night appearance at Greenman Festival on 18 August 2012.
Greenman is part of a series of European festivals that includes the Days Off festival in Paris on 30 June, where Yann Tiersen and his band will be joined by very special guests including Josh T. Pearson and Anika.
Since the release of Skyline, the seventh studio album, Yann Tiersen has been on tour in the US, watch an interview with him over at NBC NY, http://bit.ly/IHlAjO.
Joining Yann Tiersen, the line up of Robin Allender on guitars (Gravenhurst), Neil Turpin on drums (Quack Quack and Bilge Pump), Lionel Laquerriere on keyboards and vocals (Nestorisbianca), Stephane Bouvier on bass (M83, Purr) and Olavur Jacobson on vocals and synths (Orka) is now a staple of the live shows.
