Tim and Brix re­united for Apollo night

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

THE Char­la­tans have an­nounced a spe­cial sup­port act for their forth­com­ing Manch­ester Apollo show – for­mer mem­ber of the Fall Brix Smith.

Brix Smith & the Ex­tri­cated will warm up for Tim Burgess and Co at the Apollo on De­cem­ber 2 – thanks to a live col­lab­o­ra­tion at the re­cent Ken­dal Call­ing.

Smith’s band played the pop­u­lar Tim Peaks Diner at Ken­dal, which led to The Char­la­tans’ front­man join­ing them for a ver­sion of The Fall’s To­tally Wired – one of the high­lights of the week­end.

That duet is likely to be part of the Manch­ester gig.

Burgess told the M.E.N: “Af­ter we got them to Ken­dal Call­ing we knew we wanted to do it all over again, so we’re made up Brix said yes.

“I can’t wait for the tour to start now – the Manch­ester show is go­ing to be re­ally spe­cial too I think.”

Smith said: “We all loved the To­tally Wired mo­ment at Ken­dal Call­ing so we might even get Tim to do it again. We’re re­ally ex­cited.”

A hand­ful of tick­ets are still left for the Manch­ester Apollo gig.

The Char­la­tans re­leased their 13th stu­dio al­bum, Dif­fer­ent Days, ear­lier this year and took over Old­ham Street in the North­ern Quar­ter to pro­mote it with se­cret gigs, exclusive fan give­aways and spe­cial pop ups.

Brix Smith & Ex­tri­cated’s de­but al­bum ‘Part 2’ is re­leased on Septem­ber 22.
