Not many artists can churn out anthem after timeless anthem and do so without seemingly breaking a sweat. Everything Richard Ashcroft touches inherits a certain poetic essence and after an impeccable year, with his solo album reaching no.3 in the UK albums chart, it seemed only fitting that a tour should be announced.
A gig has been promised with fellow Mancunian rock god Liam Gallagher; creating an immense combined back-catalogue of Britpop that will have anyone brought up in the 90’s happier than Bez at an acid house rave. ‘These people’ will ride the R.A.dio waves straight into the stadium raves with several dates spanning across the U.K.
