Ray Davies brings you 'Other People's Lives'

Published: 2006-03-14
Former Kinks front man Ray Davies' is taking his debut solo release out on the road this spring.

Davies was the lead singer and main songwriter for the British rock band, who gained popularity in the mid-sixties with tunes like "You Really Got me," "Waterloo Sunset," and "Lola." Though the band's lineup often changed until their breakup in the mid nineties, the core was considered to be the Davies brothers, Ray and Dave. The last Kinks album, Phobia, was released in 1993, and in 2004 Dave suffered a stroke that put on pause any plans for a Kinks reunion.

Ray Davies released his first full-length solo album Other People's Lives in February and is now embarking on a tour to back the CD. Davies has scheduled 11 dates in North America throughout March and April, followed by a stint in Europe that will most likely come to a close in the UK.

Even with the rising of his solo career, Davies hasn't ruled out a Kinks reunion.

But if you can't wait around for that, here's when you can see him:

March 29, Montreal, QC - Olympia Theatre
March 30, Toronto, ON - Massey Hall
