We’re delighted to be welcoming Robyn Hitchcock back to Manchester!

Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in Storefront Hitchcock, an in-concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.

Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as ‘paintings you can listen to’. His most recent album is self-titled and marks his 21st release as a solo artist. The album was produced by Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs). Hitchcock describes it as a ‘ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove’. It has received rave reviews from UNCUT, Rolling Stone, Paste, Tidal and more.

‘A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings’ – Rolling Stone

‘Beloved of everyone from Led Zeppelin to REM, Hitchcock has only enhanced his status with this wonderful outing.” – Hot Press

Special guest is Run Remedy – a New Jersey multi-instrumentalist living in Manchester, making heartfelt indie folk with an experimental art-pop edge.
