David Gray announces summer dates, returning to Durham

British singer-songwriter David Gray seems to be gearing up for another tour this summer (seems because only three dates have popped up so far more dates have been announced) in support of his latest release Foundling, which came out in 2010. The tour will include a stop at the Durham Performing Arts Center, which hosted Gray in April 2010 (check out photos and a review of that show HERE).

He'll return to DPAC on Sunday, July 3 with Canadian singer-songwriter Lia O'Neill. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, April 8 via the box office and Ticketmaster for $45, $55 or $65.

On this tour, Gray has said the show will have less of a rock show vibe and more of a quieter, lush vibe which may incorporate strings, harmonium and mandolin. Check out a stripped down acoustic set he performed for KCRW in Los Angeles in December below.
