Preview: Mac DeMarco
King of Canadian cool Mac DeMarco is coming to spend some quality time with the UK in his November 2017 tour
Following UK appearances in Edinburgh, Newcastle and End of The Road festival this summer, Canadian cool kid Mac DeMarco will continue to ride the wave of hype off the back of his new album This Old Dog by touring across the country this November. His fantastic latest record was released in May 2017 through Captured Tracks, and it isn’t unheard of to say that it's one of the best albums released so far this year. Near-unanimously glowing reviews have created a nationwide buzz, with already most shows sold out - leading to demand for new dates to be added to the tour.
Not only does Mac have a clearly prodigious knack for making beautiful noises, but his endearing personality both on and off-stage have made him a wholesomely handsome chap in the eyes of his dedicated fans. Notorious for putting on an all-consuming, engaging and playfully entertaining performance, there are high hopes for his autumnal shindigs.
