Stewart Lee to tour his 1980s material

As support for post-punk band The Nightingales

Stewart Lee is to perform his 1980s stand-up routine in support of post-punk band The Nightingales this autumn.

The comic is a long-time fan of The Nightingales, whom he has called ‘prophets without honour’. He invited them to play the 'austerity binge' he curated at the South Bank Centre in 2011 and has mooted the idea of making a film about them.

Lee will be supporting the band at their gigs in Oxford, Bristol, Portsmouth, Birmingham – where both he and the group hair from – London, Cambridge and Brighton. Tour dates are here.

 Lee had announced he was taking long break from performing new stand-up material after his last tour, Content Provider, ended earlier this year.

One 1980s set, recorded when a student at Oxford, was previously released by indie label Go Faster Stripe (Review | Buy)

The Nightingales split at the end of the 1980s and reformed in 2004, and have released six albums since then.
