Fans Pressure Bellowhead To Reunite For Tenth Anniversary Broadside Album Brighton Show

During lockdown in 2020 the eleven members of Bellowhead first re-connected online to remotely record New York Girls - At Home. That led to re-uniting in person for a one-off performance which was streamed to mark the anniversary of Hedonism. 

Thousands of fans watched the concert (one of the biggest online streams of 2020) confirming that Bellowhead are still one of the biggest and most in demand UK folk acts despite not performing for nearly five years.

The stream led to pleas from fans for more and now the stars have aligned and they are to reunite for a mammoth tour - including a date at Brighton Dome - in November 2022 to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of their fourth album Broadside!

"The reaction to the online concert was overwhelming and we really did enjoy playing together again. 


"The 10th anniversary of Broadside presented an opportunity for us to take things one step further and get back out on the road.."

Broadside was released in 2012 and produced by John Leckie

Bellowhead formed in 2004 and after twelve years, they called it a day in 2016. 

In their active years they played to thousands of people at festivals and on tour, recorded five studio albums (selling over a quarter of a million copies). 

Bellowhead play Brighton Dome on Tuesday 15th November 2022. Tickets are on general sale via  http://gigst.rs/bellowhead
