Eric Cantona has announced a string of new live shows this spring, after heading out on his debut UK tour late last year.

The footballing icon released his debut EP ‘I’ll Make My Own Heaven’ last October, before hitting the road in November for a string of shows in Manchester and London.

Now, he’ll follow those dates up with a string of shows that begin in Dublin this April, before wrapping up in Manchester 10 days later.

You can check the new dates out in full below, ahead of tickets going on sale here at 10AM this Friday (January 25).

Eric Cantona 2024 UK and Ireland tour:

APRIL 2024

12 – Glasgow, O2 Academy

14 – Newcastle, O2 City Hall
16 – Leeds, O2 Academy

Describing his EP, which he previously said was influenced by the likes of Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen, he said: “Music has always been a part of my life. I’ve always had music playing. Why start today, so many years later? Simply because I had lacked the time before,” he added.

“During lockdown, I finally managed to give the guitar a serious go, and even though I’m still a poor guitarist, I felt confident enough to whip a few songs into shape.”
