The mammoth 52 date tour will see Donovan play shows up and down the country during 2020, including a stop at Portsmouth Guildhall on Saturday, October 24. 

He said: ‘The EMGR tour is a real opportunity to make people feel good.   

‘You can’t beat a live band, and the interaction with an audience. I like to create a show which is not just about singing songs, I like people to come into my world through the music, the stories the visuals and feel they’ve got to know me a little more personally.

‘The music becomes a sentence in which my life is the complete story. My shows are almost autobiographical in a way.

‘From my Doin Fine tour in 1990 to Ten Good Reasons in 2016 and throughout my musical stage career, performing live has been a pivotal part of my professional growth.

‘I get such a rush, and energy from a live audience - it’s like a drug - it’s something that inspires me and even today, sometimes scares me. The anxiety before going onstage is palpable and it’s this energy alone that is almost addictive in a way and keeps me coming back for more.’
