Chris Isaak announces string of UK tour dates

Chris Isaak has announced a string of UK tour dates.

The 67-year-old ‘Wicked Game’ rocker is heading to London, Birmingham and Bournemouth in August for a series of celebratory gigs, and is set to hold a show in each city.

It comes ahead of the 30th anniversary of his ‘Forever Blue’ album, which was released in 1995.

His iconic ‘Wicked Game’ song, which featured in David Lynch’s ‘Wild at Heart’ starring Nicolas Cage, was released as a single in 1989 and featured on his ‘Heart Shaped World’ album.

Chris told Songfacts about how the track was inspired by a woman trying to have a fling, saying it was about “what happens when you have a strong attraction to people that aren’t necessarily good for you”.

He added: “This one I wrote really late at night and it was written in a short time, because I remember that a girl had called me and said, ‘I want to come over and talk to you’, and ‘talk’ was a euphemism.

“And she said, ‘I want to come over and talk to you until you’re no longer able to stand up.’

“And I said, ‘Okay, you’re coming over.’

“And as soon as I hung up I thought, ‘Oh, my God.’

“I know she’s gonna be trouble. She’s always been trouble. She’s a wildcat. And here I am, I’m going to get killed, but I’m doing this.

“And I wrote ‘Wicked Game’: ‘World’s on fire and no one can save me but you.’

“It’s like you start thinking about it, and by the time she came over to the house, I had the song written.

“I think she was probably upset because I was more excited by the song!

“I was like, ‘Yes, you’re gorgeous, baby. But listen to this song!’”
