Damon Albarn will perform a very special one-off show at the iconic Globe Theatre on the banks of London’s River Thames on Monday 20th September 2021. Ticket information here.
Accompanied by his band and a string quartet, the performance marks a rare solo appearance for Damon Albarn, who presents tracks from across his songbook, including his forthcoming new album The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows, out 12th November on Transgressive Records.
The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows, originally intended as an orchestral piece inspired by the landscapes of Iceland, has seen Albarn return to the music in lockdown over the last year and develop the work to 11 tracks which further explore themes of fragility, loss, emergence and rebirth. The result is a panoramic collection of songs with Albarn as a storyteller. The album title is taken from a John Clare poem Love and Memory.
Tickets are on sale at 10 am on Friday 10th September, tickets and information here.
