MARTIN L. GORE
ANNOUNCES LIVE DATES IN EUROPE
Martin L. Gore has announced details of European dates to coincide with the release of his solo album "CounterfeitВІ" on April 28th.
April 22nd - Stockholm, Nalen
April 24th - Cologne, E-Werk
April 26th - Hamburg, Hamburg Docks
April 28th - Paris, La Cigale
April 30th - Milan, Alcatraz

Martin will be performing songs from "CounterfeitВІ", a wildly diverse and passionate collection that sees Gore radically rework tracks originally made famous by the likes of Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, Kurt Weill, John Lennon, Brian Eno and David Essex.
Recorded at his home studio, Gore revisits and reinvents songs which have touched him deeply over the years. The tracks range from sultry 21st Century blues to achingly lovely sci-fi lullabies; sublime alt-country crooners to engrossing electronic torch songs. A glittering haul of buried treasure, their only guiding spirit being the visceral emotional attachment felt by Martin towards them.
"I really wanted to get across a fan's perspective," says Martin. "There is something about the songs I like that somehow gives the album a thread. Deep emotions, I suppose. There has to be a personal connection."
