Richard Ashcroft

20 Apr 2019

Heading to the Arena in April 2019, having released his fifth solo studio album ‘Natural Rebel’,  we can't wait to see Richard Ashcroft live!

"Ex-Verve man delivers best LP in years. This is easily the strongest set of tunes he's put out this millennium...a fine addition to Richard Ashcroft's hand." 

'He's undeniably reaquired his mojo lately...any heart that ongoingly swells for Lucky Man's smouldering anthemics may actually burst for Natural Rebel.'
