RICHARD ASHCROFT

AN ACOUSTIC EVENING OF HIS CLASSIC SONGS

 

Iconic singer-songwriter, and former frontman of The Verve, Richard Ashcroft has announced two more live acoustic evenings of his classic songs in Liverpool and London this Autumn.

Richard will perform these extra shows at Liverpool M&S Bank Arena on Friday 29th October and London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall on Monday 1st November. These will follow his two sold out dates at London Palladium in October and will be a special celebration from his repertoire of songs which will feature new interpretations of many of his classic solo and The Verve compositions.

The two-time Ivor Novello winner (Songwriter of the Year in 1998 and Outstanding Contribution to British Music in 2019) has released five Top 5 solo albums, including the #1 debut ‘Alone With Everybody’ and his most recent set, 2018’s ‘Natural Rebel’. He first came to attention with The Verve, with who he released one of the biggest albums of the era in the shape of ‘Urban Hymns’ as well as a succession of anthems which remain staples of his live set today.
