Orlando Weeks to bring ‘The Gritterman’ live to London and Manchester

The former Maccabee is bringing last year’s solo album back to the stage in December.

Last year, former Maccabees frontman Orlando Weeks released ‘The Gritterman’, a debut solo album and accompanying book. He brought the show to the stage for a special show at London’s Union Chapel last December, and has now announced the return of the show!

Joined on stage by Paul Whitehouse as The Gritterman as well as a full band and choir, Orlando will recreate the album at two London shows and one Manchester date in December.

“Last year’s concert was very special,” Orlando says of ‘The Gritterman”s live debut. “It’s going to be a real pleasure trying to recreate that atmosphere, not just in Union Chapel but in the Albert Hall too. This year my focus has been on writing a new album, so it will be nice to come back to The Gritterman music.”
