“The album Goodbye Tiger” was one of the landmark records of the time and articulated the state of the nation. Clapton became the bard of the nation”
– Toby Cresswell, Rolling Stone Magazine
Continuing his Music Is Love 1966 – 1920 national tour and to celebrate his latest album with same title legendary singer songwriter RICHARD CLAPTON is coming to MELBOURNE to perform at PALMS AT CROWN for one night only Friday 22 July.
Performing all his hits and more that have made him a national treasure it seems that Richard has been on his own version of the neverending tour, for four decades Richard has been on the road with songs that go right to the heart of the Australian psyche performed by some of the best musicians around. His live shows bring the house down every time.
Richard’s bestselling memoir, “The Best Years of Our Lives” brought back so many great stories of high times and sheer beauty. Many of these crazy and emotional stories have worked their way back into Richard’s live show and add an extra dimension to the live performances. You never know exactly what you’ll experience at Richard’s shows, but you do know that every gig will be different. It’s constantly evolving in front of your eyes and ears.
Although he is known for his incisive lyrics, Richard’s spiritual home is in front of an amplifier on 10 with an electric guitar around his neck. Audiences leave Richard’s shows sweaty, singing and a little bit blissed out. This is still true today.
Notes on the album are attached.
