After 2 years touring all over the planet, viral sensation and guitar virtuoso Jon Gomm is hitting the road on home soil with his first major solo UK tour this Autumn, playing the Youtube hits that first brought him fame and premiering songs from his forthcoming album Secrets Nobody Keeps.
Jon is pleased to announce that if you are a band or solo artist, you can now apply to play the opening set at one of the upcoming dates. Gomm well remembers the pain of applying for support slots in his hometown, only to find it was already taken by a touring support artist, often on the same label or agency roster as the headliners. Where possible, Jon wants to give the chance to local musicians.
How To Apply :
1) Go to the facebook event for the one gig nearest you.
2) Please post a direct link to video or audio of your music (e.g. Youtube, Soundcloud, or Bandcamp) as a post on this event page.
3) Jon will personally select a shortlist of bands.
4) We'll invite the guests of the facebook event to vote for who they'd like to see.
The final choice for support artist will then be made by Jon in conjunction with the concert venue/promoter, and will be subject to terms and conditions set out by the venue/promoter. For a few gigs, support artists have already been chosen (for special reasons).
Full information for how to apply is on Jon's website.
Jon Gomm's new album 'Secrets Nobody Keeps' is released on Performing Chimp Records later this year (date TBC).
