Witty, theatrical and musically spellbinding; Berry’s live shows are always an invigorating journey.

Tripping into a world that’s both beautiful and surreal, this latest tour will see Berry deftly navigate an

eclectic back catalogue – including tracks from albums Witchazel and Kill The Wolf, and recently

reissued Opium.  And then there’s the inevitable surprises, be that unique renditions of classic

songs, freeform jam sessions, extra special guests, orchestral stage invasions … anything is

possible in the world of Matt Berry.

“As a frontman, Berry is laconic but focused, and unstarrily generous”
Classic Rock Mag

“Mind blowing”
Music-news (on live show)

“Best gig we’ve been
to in a long time”

Once again, Berry’s super-talented, equally-zany 6-piece The Maypoles will be joining him on tour, with line-up including Bluetones singer Mark Morris and folk artist Cecilia Fage.

After Berry’s last show at The Forum, the The Velvet Onion pleaded ‘If you get a chance to see him, you’d be a damn fool to miss out’. He’ll be returning to the venue on December 10th for the last night of the tour – expect an unforgettable finale.

  Matt Berry is a celebrated actor, writer, winner of The National Comedy Awards, Bafta 2015 and talented musician. He’s now released four albums on Acid Jazz RecordsWitchazel, Kill The Wolf, Opium and Music For Insomniacs – each received with both critical and popular acclaim.

Matt Barry The Forum[1].

Mesmerising, dark, eerie and completely captivating – Matt Berry to perform a one-off concert at The Forum

The Forum, Kentish Town, Friday 13 February 2015

Matt Berry, the award winning actor and writer is set to perform a one-off concert at The Forum, Kentish Town on Friday 13February 2015.

Matt will be joined on stage by his band, The Maypoles, who feature the former Bluetones frontman Mark Morriss on guitar.

The star and co-writer of Channel Four comedy Toast of London, Berry will be performing a set of songs drawn from his highly rated recent albums Witchazel and Kill The Wolf coupled with some of his early classics and, ever the dark horse, Matt always like to keep a few surprises up his sleeve for the encores (who could forget David Arnold conducting 25 musicians on stage for an orchestral rendition of Live and Let Die last year?)

To coincide with the performance Berry and his label, Acid Jazz will be issuing a limited edition 500 heavyweight vinyl pressing of his long-deleted CD only album OPIUM.

Matt Berry says: It’s difficult to find the time to play the music between the comedy, so every break from filming leaves me itching to record or perform new material. Whenever I get the opportunity, I jump at it.”

The concert at the iconic Forum in Kentish town promises to be a dark, slightly eerie yet uplifting and most certainly an unforgettable experience.

His latest album, the side-project synth-prog opus Music for Insomniacs, on which matt plays every instrument featured just two twenty three minute tracks recorded as Berry drew on his own personal experience aiming to create a sound to cure sleep deprivation.  The album has since been described by many, including NME, as far ‘too good to fall asleep to’.
