Legendary American songwriter, virtuoso guitarist and pianist, Nils Lofgren returns to the UK for the first time since 2011. After touring with Bruce Springsteen as a long-time member of the E Street Band on both the 2012-13 Wrecking Ball and 2014 High Hopes tours, Nils Lofgren is back to perform his own legendary live show.
Known for his world-class guitar playing, and his on-stage acrobatics, Nils Lofgren is a true Rock legend in his own right, a superb front-man, both with Grin and under his own name. Recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the E Street Band, Nils is due to release Face the Music on 5 August 2014, a 10-disc retrospective box set of his 45 years of recording.
Nils is joined for an acoustic set by multi-instrumentalist Greg Varlotta.
Expect classic Lofgren favourites like Shine Silently, I Came to Dance, Keith Don’t Go and many others from his vast back catalogue.
