Dan Reed Network announce June 2022 Summer Escape UK Tour
Dan Reed Network have announced four concerts in the UK this June. Tickets go on sale Friday February 25th at 10am from www.danreed-network.com/tour. Dates include – Waterloo Music Bar, Blackpool (June 16), The Welly, Hull (June 17), The Dreadnought, Bathgate (June 18), O2 Ritz, Manchester (June 19).
Says Dan Reed, “As soon as we were made aware that our shows with Reckless Love were going to be rescheduled again it became imperative to find a way to get back on the road as soon as possible, we have an album that we know is going to deliver and we are desperate to get out there and play it live for everyone! We’re delighted that we were able to arrange these headlines shows around the album’s release date so we can celebrate that properly with all of you.”
The tour will see the band take in four UK dates including a special guest performance at the HRH AOR Festival at 02 Ritz in Manchester on Sunday June 19, before heading to Hamburg for an album release party show hosted by their record label, Drakkar Entertainment.

“The ongoing instability caused by the pandemic has made it impossible for Dan Reed Network and Reckless Love to travel to the UK and throughout Europe,” says Dan.
Dan adds, “This decision has not been made lightly. We were determined to give these shows as much of a chance of happening as possible, however it is now clear that the world is not yet in a secure enough position for us to be confident about traversing countries with shows unaffected by Covid. There is the added caveat that when we return to play our first shows in what now will be well over two years, we want to do this in true DRN fashion and that means freely interacting with those who want to come and hang out with the band post shows. Our live performances are fuelled by our interactions with you all, before, during and after our shows!”
Dan Reed Network are delighted to present the new lyric video for Pretty Karma – the second single from the upcoming new album Let’s Hear It For The King. The single is out now and is available to stream at https://bfan.link/pretty-karma-1
“The reception to the first single “Starlight” was truly incredible,” says Dan Reed. “We’re determined to keep our foot to the floor. “Pretty Karma” is the perfect track for that, and we hope this track keeps the anticipation levels for ‘Let’s Hear It For the King’ simmering on high!
“We are chomping at the bit to get out there and bring people what we genuinely believe is the heaviest, funkiest and most melodic DRN album to date,” says Dan Reed. “These songs are the strongest representation of the band’s sound that we’ve ever created. You have been warned!”
The long-awaited new DRN album pays tremendous detail to infectious melodies, provocative lyrics and honours their shredding funk rock roots. This album is for visionaries who want to be part of and bear witness to the next step in the Dan Reed Network’s artistic evolution.
“The new album snarls and bites,” says an enthusiastic Dan Reed. “We’re ready to deliver a lot of energy and give the audience a direct shot of funk n’ roll!”
