Known by fans for his ambitious performances, Payne and his band begin touring UK theatres this March with a brand new “audio-visual extravaganza”. With a new show set to the music of his soon to be released debut album ‘By Name, By Nature’, Joe plans to combine his live-band experience with intricate music visuals. Audiences can expect interactive choreography with a large video screen, a sprinkle of magic, and support from ex-Beatrix Players singer Ms Amy Birks. Since his relaunch in 2018, Joe has been increasingly vocal about his experience with mental illness, and claims the new album has been entirely influenced by his own recovery from anxiety & depression. This audio-visual production also aims to openly discuss mental health as the singer showcases his new and unreleased material.
