Due to popular demand, live media platform Doors.Live today announced that Damon Albarn’s sold-out one-off show at the iconic Globe Theatre on the banks of London’s River Thames will now be made available to fans around the world. This very special performance from Shakespeare’s Globe on Monday 20th September 2021 will stream live at 19.30 BST and will also be available to stream in North & South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Ticket information here.
Albarn said – “I love playing in the round and at The Globe you can see the moon too, marvellous.”
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 that 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.
