Richard Ashcroft announces headline summer show at Leeds Millennium Square
Iconic Wigan singer-songwriter Richard Ashcroft has announced a major headline outdoor summer show at Leeds Millennium Square on Saturday July 16 2022.
The news follows the release of his lauded album Acoustic Hymns Vol. 1 which charted in the UK at no 2.
It also included new interpretations of many classic solo tracks and a host of compositions from The Verve’s repertoire of songs and the current single C’mon People We’re Making It Now featuring Liam Gallagher.
Last year also saw Ashcroft perform a series of sold-out headline UK shows including the Royal Albert Hall and two nights at the London Palladium.
Ashcroft is a two-time Ivor Novello winner (Songwriter of the Year in 1998 and Outstanding Contribution to British Music in 2019) who has released five Top 5 solo albums, including the #1 debut ‘Alone With Everybody’.
As well as this, The Verve also released a succession of anthems which remain staples of his live set today, including The Drugs Don’t Work, Bittersweet Symphony, Lucky Man and Sonnet.
