Following sold out shows and festival performances including Isle Of Wight Festival as well as international shows in Japan, Chile, Argentina and Mexico, Richard sees out 2016 in grand style with two very special shows at The O2 in London and Liverpool Echo Arena in December where he will be performing with an orchestra performing songs from ‘These People’ alongside his legendary back catalogue of solo work and that with The Verve.
The Brit and Ivor Novello award winning and Grammy nominated artist recorded ‘These People’ in London and it was produced by Richard and longtime collaborator Chris Potter, as well as marking a reunion with Wil Malone, who worked with Richard on the string arrangements on the seminal albums by The Verve A Northern Soul (1995), Urban Hymns (1997), and his platinum-selling and critically acclaimed debut solo album Alone with Everybody (2000).
Richard will be working with Wil Malone again for the two very special live shows this December (Liverpool Arena on December the 7th and the London 02 Arena on December the 9th)
Equally channelling his classic output and exploring adventurous new sounds, textures and themes, and graced by one of the most singular and unforgettable voices in British music, These People reaffirms him as one of the most defining and prodigious songwriters of his generation.
