REAL GONE says: Although more dates are being added later, it isn’t yet clear whether these will be extra Euro dates or for the US/Canadian leg of the ‘Lightwork’ tour. At this stage, there’s still no word on a UK show. If it happens, it can be assumed it’ll be slotted in at the beginning of April, somewhere between the Dublin and Lille shows. However, given the amount of paperwork and hoop jumping it now takes for overseas artists to visit our self-destructive little island, fans shouldn’t consider a visit from Devin a certainty. Thanks, Brexit. YOU BASTARD.
