It's our Birthday this month and to thank all you lovely people for your custom and support over the past year we're giving you the chance to win 2 tickets to see the legendary Nils Lofgren at the Queens Hall, Edinburgh, on Sunday 20th May - and the opportunity to meet him after the show!

Our apologies to those of you who live too far away to attend...


 

'50 Years... Up The Road' Tour

 
Well, I actually started out on the accordion when I was six years old and I studied classical accordion for nine years. But then, thanks to The Beatles, Stones, Motown and the Blues greats, I picked up the guitar as a hobby; and after I saw Jimi Hendrix I knew I wanted to play guitar.

An Intimate Acoustic Evening of Songs and Stories...

Celebrating his 50th year of touring professionally, legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame E Street Band Member and solo artist Nils Lofgren makes his first return to the UK in three years for a 15 city tour, accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Greg Varlotta. 

In addition to his 30 years of touring and recording with the E Street Band, Lofgren has contributed piano, guitars and vocals to Neil Young’s legendary albums and tours; was a member of Ringo Starr’s first two All Star Bands; and has performed with Willie Nelson, Jerry Lee Lewis, Lou Reed, Branford Marsalis, and many more.

Drawing from an expansive repertoire of a lifetime in Rock and Roll, and sharing many memorable stories along the way, Nils will pick up on the magical experience of his last critically acclaimed UK run. 

Nils and Greg will use a multitude of instruments to add color and depth to these new shows. Nils, along with his lovely wife Amy, plan as always to spend time visiting with fans after the performance concludes, in what has become the "show after the show". They always ask the venues to keep the pub open afterwards, too! 

Nils says "I've never felt more welcome or at home touring than in the UK. I'm honored and grateful to celebrate my 50th year on the road there with Amy, Greg and our great UK crew, for an inspired night of music and friends. We love the UK audiences. Please come join us!"

In 1975 Nils’ first solo album was a template for the sound and attitude Jon Landau and I hoped to accomplish on Born To Run. Nils’ singing and guitar playing voice remains as distinctive today as it’s ever been.
— Bruce Springsteen
