Preview: Aiden Grimshaw at The Old Fire Station, Bournemouth. (23/09/12)


Aiden Grimshaw is setting off on his first headline tour off the back of releasing his debut album Misty Eye. Since his emergence on The X Factor in 2010 Aiden truly has left that behind and found his own unique sound, aside from the show. He will be playing a host of shows across the UK, one in particular being at The Old Fire Station in Bournemouth.

He recently supported Niki and The Dove on the Southampton date of their UK tour but this is the first time Aiden will be headlining. Those of you who are pretty sceptical about an artist such as Aiden coming off the back of The X Factor should leave your preconceptions behind, and take Aiden as a serious male solo artist. Check out the video for his latest single ‘Curtain Call’ below.

The tour kicks off in Bristol on 19th September and finishes in London on 2nd October. You can get your tickets here
