Wisconsin-bred guitarist Jared James Nichols embarks on his first major UK tour in February 2020. The 8-date tour starts on Tuesday February 25th at the Robin 2 in Bilston and ends at the Exchange in Bristol on Sunday March 29th. Tickets are available from SeeTickets.com.

Special guests on all dates will be the Kent-based 4-piece rock band Collateral. Their new single Mr Big Shot will be released on October 25th. The single is taken from their debut album released February 21st, 2020. 

“I’m looking forward to playing the UK again,” says Jared. “The last time we toured the UK, we supported Living Colour and Wayward Sons. This time we will be headlining our own shows so it’s going to be a special tour for us. We’ve been gradually building up a lot of momentum over the years, so the time feels right for a headline tour now.”

The tour follows Jared’s recent single Nails in the Coffin that was a popular A-listed radio hit on Planet Rock Radio. Recorded in Los Angeles, the single was produced and co-written by Mark Jackson and Ian Scott; best known for being the team behind the artist Dorothy and the hit single The Riverby Bishop Briggs.

“Nails in the Coffin has many different meanings,” says Jared. “It’s about overcoming the odds, always pushing forward. Never backing down or giving up to anything or anyone.”

2019  was a ground-breaking year for Jared as Gibson/Epiphone released his Signature Model Les Paul Custom Guitar along with the release of the Blackstar Amps JJN-20R MKII. Read an interview with Jared about his Signature Epiphone at https://bit.ly/2XFNN6h. Both models received rave reviews.

Hailed as one of the most exciting new blues rock guitarists around, Jared is no stranger to UK audiences. In 2015 he embarked on a European tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd, followed by an extensive UK tour supporting the legendary Glenn Hughes, where he won over critics with across-the-board rave reviews. He also toured with Stone Broken and opened the Planet Rock Main Stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair 2017.
