More Details Club 85 in association with Hi Tone Music presents... ALEX FRANCIS & BAND + SPECIAL GUESTS TBA!

Alex Francis returns to Club 85 with his band after a packed summer opening for Sting & Shaggy in Europe and debut shows this autumn in New York City..

There'll be special guests, brand new songs and maybe- just maybe- EVEN a festive treat or two! Following on from his sell-out show at Club 85 in May, this one is NOT to be missed!


Alex Francis released his first single ‘Make Believe’ in 2017 before embarking onto a successful tour of the UK and Europe supporting pop legend Melanie C. Alex also provided guest vocals on Melanie’s single ‘Hold On’. Alex’s EP ‘A Stronger Love’ caught the attention of Stereophonics’ Kelly Jones who invited Alex and his band to open their European tour in early 2018. This summer, Alex has opened for Sting throughout Europe and has performed at several major festivals all over the globe including MadCool Festival in Madrid, support for Alanis Morrisette at Blue Balls Festival in Switzerland and at the Isle of Wight Festival back in the UK. This Autumn Alex travels to New York for a show at the Mercury Lounge alongside Anthony D’Amato on September 27th.

“Things are speeding up for Alex Francis. New single 'Free' is blazing a trail, with Alex utilising his soothing, calming voice for a message of hope and resilience.” Clash Magazine

“Soul heavy pop somewhere between Ray Lamontagne and Allen Stone” CHILL FLTR
