Tim Robbins is set to embark on his first ever European tour - including dates in the UK and Ireland - hitting the road with the Rogues Gallery Band.

Tim Robbins & the Rogues Gallery Band’s eponymously titled, Hal Willner produced debut album is due for release on September 27th – a labour of love for the actor and director, which has been realised in an impressive collection of rousing, raggle-taggle gypsy Americana and story telling songs.

Long immersed in the music world, having been brought up in a folk singing and playing family, Tim’s seven dates set for the UK and Ireland will see him playing material from ‘Tim Robbins & the Rogues Gallery Band’. The shows look set to be a combination of rousing musicianship, creative experimentation and uplifting collaboration.

The Rogues Gallery is made up of a host of world class musicians. Featuring on the album are Kate St. John, Leo Abrahams, David Coulter, Roger Eno, Rory McFarlane, Andrew Newmark and Dudley Phillips. The live performances will include Kate St. John, David Coulter, Roger Eno, Rory McFarlane, Liam Bradley, Steve Jones and Jack Pinter.
