Paul Collins Takes Center Stage

Paul Collins, of The Nerves, The Breakaways, and The Paul Collins Beat, is packing his guitar and doing a solo acoustic tour through Europe in the coming months.
Paul Collins – Paul Collins
The overseas tour starts in Clermont-Ferrand, France, on May 6 and he moves throughout the continent, with the last of his headline dates currently booked for June 29 in Lisbon, Portugal. The last show on the books is a play at Festival Le Sable, Les Mouettes Et Les Guitares Électriques in Trouville-sur-Mer, France, July 21.
The next spot to catch the power pop artist is in Glen Cove, N.Y., April 22–his only date in North America currently planned in 2017.
The show will just be the man, his guitar and his songs. You can get to know those tunes through reissues of two of his works with Paul Collins Beat: One Night and To Beat or Not To Beat/Longtime Gone.
Paul Collins reached what is widely regarded as the height of success when he was able to visit Pollstar’s headquarters in Fresno, Calif.
