Recording artist Darren Hayes is playing one final round of intimate club dates in the UK for 2008 before he leaves these shores for a national tour of the U.S and then a well deserved break.

These dates will be his last in support of his groundbreaking double album 'This Delicate Thing We've Made' and his final shows in Europe for the foreseeable future.

After selling out the Royal Albert Hall during his national UK tour in September 2007 Hayes had a chance to put on the big pop show he'd always wanted to present. The shows were lavish, spectacular and theatrical. But they left him with a need to reconnect with smaller audiences
and explore the bounds of material left over on the other side of his double album. Hence 'The Side 2 Tour'.

'The Side 2 Tour' will be a stripped back and experimental look at music from his new record as well as some dusted off and reinvented old favorites. Playing to tiny houses and with limited dates, the shows promise to be a unique experience for anyone lucky enough to get tickets.

The show will run nationally throughout the UK and a limited number of European cities in February before making its way to the U.S in March. When the tour wraps, Hayes will have played live in support of his current album for well over 12 months.

This is a unique opportunity to catch one of this generations best kept secrets before he heads into a hiatus. Find out why Time Out New York describes him live as 'A natural.. gliding around the stage with the
silkiest of falsetto voices.. Revelatory and cool at last.. A dance
pop fiend!'.
