David Brent Heading on UK Tour with Ex-Razorlight Drummer is SO David Brent

While David Brent and Andy Burrow’s musical union isn’t a joke in and of itself – the pair have known each other since Ricky Gervais met Burrow on Jonathon Ross in 2008 – there’s nothing more Brent than coupling with a member of Razorlight. Nothing.

Burrows is alright though; he’s got a lovable face and plenty of auburn stubble. And he’s not Johnny Borrell. Combine those things and you’ve got yourself a pretty decent bloke all told. He’s now realising the dream of every 29-year-old man (he’s 34 himself) by playing live with Gervais’s Brent.

“Ricky has written nearly all the material himself but he wanted a helping hand with some specific tracks,” a source told The Mirror. "He and Andy first met in 2008 on the Jonathan Ross Show and they have stayed in touch ever since.”

Having sold out a few shows in London – and receiving some pretty warm reviews in the process – the pair are set to build on that success with a full UK tour, culminating in a massive Wembley Arena send off.

“Although Ricky’s performances are all slightly cringe-worthy, they are extremely tongue-in-cheek and actually, lyrically, very clever. Andy was keen to get involved in the new album as soon as the idea was put to him,” the source added.

“There has been interest from a major record label and an album will hit shelves early next year, with Andy credited as the major songwriter. They are also currently in talks for a live arena tour, taking in venues of varying sizes.”

The Brent renaissance kicked off with Red Nose Day, whereby Brent and Doc Brown appeared in a special, which lead to a song for the charity called Equality Street. Gervais then hit YouTube with his guitar lessons, and now the live shows look to grab the attention of his fans.
