Steve Knightley In Concert
Steve Knightley announces highly anticipated 2018 solo tour – and there’s a twist.
As the frontman and songwriter of British folk heavyweights Show of Hands, Steve Knightley boasts an impressive back catalogue. He’s regularly cited by emerging artists as a source of inspiration.
But who has ignited and fuelled Knightley’s creative spark throughout his decades of craftsmanship?
His 2018 solo tour ‘Songs & Stories’ seeks to answer that question. Of course the set list will be peppered with his now-classic gems such as ‘Cousin Jack’, ‘AIG’ and ‘Country Life’. But in a rare glimpse into his personal playlist, Knightley will also be paying tribute to artists such as Dylan, Carthy, Bowie, Springsteen, Tull and Radiohead, all of whom have influenced him greatly along the way.
Steve Knightley’s enduring appeal is perhaps in some part due to the fact that he is as at home in a folk club in East Devon as he is gracing the stage of a sell-out Royal Albert Hall concert.
The Show of Hands fanbase extends to luminaries such as Peter Gabriel, who has described them as ‘one of the great English bands’. With his songwriting and commentary more razor-sharp and relevant than ever, Knightley continues to remain at the cutting-edge of folk, roots and acoustic music.
Steve says, “The 2018 solo tour gives me an excuse to bring out songs from some of my favourite artists, and also to share plenty stories of life on the road – both usually reserved for late nights around a campfire.”
