Richard Hawley returns to Italy for a single stop as part of the support tour for the recent album 'Lady's Bridge', released at the end of August by Emi/Virgin and long-awaited successor to the successful Coles Corner, a work that brought the English singer-songwriter into the limelight less than two years ago.
The title track of 'Coles Corner' was Richerd Hawley's calling card for the Italian public, a radio hit dated December 2005 that the new hit 'Tonight the streets are ours' seems to be able to repeat itself without any major problems: the first single extracted from the new album immediately entered the charts, as did the video, which was among the most programmed by music channels in recent weeks.
The style of a true 'crooner' brought the musician from Sheffield to be compared to great names of the past, from Jonny Cash to the most melancholic Elvis. In addition to being an accomplished singer, Richard Hawley is a great songwriter and respected guitarist. Before his experience as a soloist, he had several experiences both as a songwriter and as a musician for big names on the international pop scene, from Robbie Williams to Gwen Stafani and Nancy Sinatra.
He arrives in Italy on 29 October for a single date at Milan's Magazzini Generali, at the end of a tour that starts right now in England, where Richard Hawley is a top star. With 150,000 copies sold, his 'Coles Corner' was nominated for a popular British arts award, the Mercury Prize.
His only previous Italian date was in November 2005, when he played at the Milan Conservatory.
Tickets initially available on the Ticket One circuit, then also in the usual presale outlets.
