Richard Ashcroft Announces New Live Shows

RICHARD ASHCROFT - Announces new single 'Hold On' - Listen

Richard Ashcroft released his new album These People on Friday and is currently #2 on the Official album midweek chart, trailing the No.1 position by just 100 copies, cementing the brilliant reception for the return of one of the UK’s most cherished and revered voices.

Following ecstatically received shows at London’s Roundhouse and Manchester’s 02 Academy, which sold out in just 25 minutes, Richard has today announced two new headline shows in December. These will see him taking the stage at Liverpool Arena on December 7th and the 20 thousand capacity London 02 Arena on December 9th. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am from the venues and ticket master.

Meanwhile, Richard stopped by Chris Evans’ show on BBC Radio 2 on Friday where he performed a spirited four song acoustic set, including new single ‘Hold On’ and a goose bump-inducing cover of Prince’s ‘Little Red Corvette’.
