The Gaslight Anthem‘s frontman was set to hit the road back in May in support of his third solo album ‘Local Honey’, which was released in March. Those dates were pushed back until January/February 2021 earlier this year.
As the pandemic continues to disrupt live music, Fallon confirmed today (July 28) that the tour will now kick-off next December. The musician will perform in Norwich, Leeds, Glasgow, Nottingham, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham and London, with support coming from Chris Farren and Jesse Malin.
“As I’m sure most of you expected, I have to reschedule all my tour dates to 2021,” Fallon wrote on Twitter. “This will be for all dates. I have new US/Can dates as well as new UK/Europe dates.”

In an interview NME upon the release of ‘Local Honey’ track ’21 Days’, Fallon discussed teaming up with Grammy Award-winning producer Peter Katis (The National, Death Cab For Cutie, Interpol and Frightened Rabbit) for his third studio effort.
“A lot of my music is very straight forward. It’s meat and potatoes and he experiments quite a bit,” he explained. “He’d say, ‘Hey, did you like that U2 record with Daniel Lanois?’. I’d say ‘Yeah’, so he’d take that familiar sound and then encourage me to push it even further.
“I’d be curious to see what would happen if I worked with him again, I’d love to see it go further.”
