By
Ben Howard has revealed plans to tour America.

The singer, who performed at London's Hard Rock Cafe this week, told Absolute Radio that he will play a string of shows across the US later this year.

Absolute Sessions: Ben Howard


In an interview with Absolute DJ Pete Donaldson ahead of the gig, he said: "The America stuff is one of those things as a musician where it's like a real holy grail. I think we're going to try to do a tour in a Vida bus as well, it's a Communion thing where everyone's in Vida buses, which sounds like a nightmare.

"We had a couple when I was younger. My parents had a couple [and] they're awful, they just break down every ten minutes."

Howard continued: "[They are] the first proper shows I'm doing. I did a little car park tour for someone once and that was kind of interesting. It's nice to just go to the States.

"There's so many ideas and so much scope for different directions, and there's so many venues, I'm just really excited."

Howard released his debut album Every Kingdom last September. It entered the UK chart at number seven and has since sold over 70,000 copies.

Last year, rock band You Me At Six performed at the Hard Rock Cafe to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
