UPDATE: Fran Healy announces new tour, coming to Carrboro

Frontman of the excellent Scottish band Travis, Fran Healy, has just announced some new dates supporting his new solo album Wreckorder. After a run of dates supporting The Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers in November, Healy will head out on a headlining tour.

The tour will bring him to the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro on Tuesday, December 7. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, October 29 via etix for $20.

[UPDATE: Bad news. Just two days before the show at the Cat's Cradle, it has been announced that the show has been canceled. Healy has canceled a few other shows on the tour due to a personal issue involving his son Clay. The Cat's Cradle is going to try to book a new date in the near future. We'll keep you posted.]

Check out the video for "Buttercups" from Healy's new album below along with the upcoming tour dates. He'll also be playing some classic Travis tunes as well. Since Travis (and most UK bands) never stop in the Carolinas, this will likely be the closest we'll ever come.

Travis played the Cradle back in their heyday. Or are you talking recently?

I mean recently. Oasis played the Cradle back in the day too. I would have loved to have been there for that.
