About the tour

As frontman of cult British power-pop outfit Last Great Dreamers, Marc Valentine has brought sparkle to venues and turntables alike with his distinctive vocals, wry charm and songbook of secret power-pop punk classics. Now, with his favourite guitar in tow, he’s heading out on a solo adventure, loading his flight case with a fresh set of tunes, and polishing the trademark twinkle in his eye.

His debut solo album Future Obscure, sees Valentine building on his past while expanding his sonic palette, to craft a collection of should-be hits – 7-inch-shaped songs that move both body and mind. The album is produced by Dave Draper (The ProfessionalsThe WildheartsRyan HamiltonGinger Wildheart & The Sinners ). Recorded with friends old and new, and featuring collaborations with Wreckless Eric and The Boys‘ Matt Dangerfield, this is a reflective, sometimes defiant album in the golden-era tradition – a pop record from the heart, packed with songs to holler, heal and hold.

Marc took to the road in the later half of 2022 with a band drawn from the albums contributors, consisting of Richard Davies (Richard Davies & The DissidentsThe Snakes, Tiny Monroe), Steve Fielding (Last Great DreamersThe BoysThe Stiffs) & Denley Slade (Last Great Dreamers, Sal, Sister Morphine). Their debut show was at Bedford Esquires supporting Ginger Wildheart & The Sinners . Headline shows followed with Carol HodgeContinental Lovers & The Speedways.
