First published in What's on: Music

ONE of the leading ladies of rock, the legendary Patti Smith, is to play Burnley Mechanics in April — just one of two dates in England in 2013.

Music fans have been calling the Mechanics from all over the country trying to get tickets for the show on Wednesday, April 17.

But the tickets, priced £25, don’t go on sale until 9am tomorrow.

For the acoustic evening of words and music, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee will be joined by band member Tony Shanahan.

Smith’s debut album Horses in 1975 propelled her to international stardom and for over 35 years she has been one of the most influential female artists in rock.

For tickets, call the Mechanics box office on 01282 664400 from 9am tomorrow.
