Worcester Quite a late commer to RTs music. Seen him live about six times now; simply the best guitarist in the world
New York I've been listening to Richard Thompson my whole life without realizing it. Since hearing Vincent Black Lightening I've become a conscious fan.
Spain How can RT be SO POWERFUL?

Sydney "Thanks for the ACL DVD ! Really wonderful performances from the trio; the loveliest touch is the crunching second solo in SOTL after busting a string in the first solo - superb moment! Thanks for continuing to turn us on, RT. Look forward to Front Parlour Ballads."
California I love this guys music!!!!
Washington really wonderful site
north carolina Richard Thompson kicks ass! Come back to Chapel Hill/Durham NC so we can see you again!

Dublin Any chance of 1000 years of music show in Dublin sometime..Please!

Wisconsin saw him with fairport at the nyc fillmore at uwm in wisconsin among others
"June 21, 2005"

Pennsylvania "Richard Thompson should sell more records than Britney Spears, NSync, and Slipknot combined. In a righteous world, he would!"
"June 22, 2005"
Cumbria Here's looking forward to Brampton Live 2005...
"June 23, 2005"
Mid Glamorgan "Clever marketing ploy that! Adding ""Persuasion"" from the Austin TX DVD to the bonus selection on ""Providence"". Now I'll have to rush out and get that too! ( although I would have done eventually anyway). Great DVD by the way."
Cheshire "Long life and good luck to you Richard. I've enjoyed listening to, and playing along with your records, since 1969. The Live in Providence and the Austin DVDs are great. Pete Zorn and Danny Thompson are magisterial! Is it really liquid paraffin in those two glasses carefully positioned on the chair to your right on stage in the Austin performance? If it is, what brand is it? All the best"
Maryland Would be great to see and hear him soon.
Texas "Thanks for releasing the live CDs. Great website, too."
Iowa "I saw Richard live in Iowa City June 4th. It was the best acoustic solo show I've ever seen, which includes Warren Zevon and Paul Westerberg. Not only was his guitar playing great, but he had the crowd transfixed. It was a fantastic show and I'd like to see Richard perform with a full band sometime. Thanks for coming to IC Richard, you were great and we appreciate it!"

florida would love richard to appear in my area
Colorado "As always, thank you for a powerful show and for the 4 new tunes! Thanks for bringing the torrential rain. My 22 yr old son joined me for the first time and loved it. Even though he has been listening to you his entire life, live was a real treat. For the 20-someth time, life would not be the same without you. The Flower Lady in Boulder"
"June 25, 2005"

Auckland "I asked my son (age 30) what he'd like for his birthday this year ""Richard Thompson live in Austin Texas."Who?" "Richard Thompson. Been around for years." "What, that bloke who used to play with Fairport Convention?" "Yeah. Think so." "Blimey. Thought he'd succumbed to drink or drugs years ago." Off to the CD store I went and bought a copy for him. I thought "Hm. Used to love Fairport in the 60s. I'll have to have a look at it before I give it to him." I did, and he ended up with a Book Token for his birthday!!"
New York RT is THE most brilliant and the smartest songwriter/guitarist on the planet.
New York "Thank you for the wonderful show last night at the World Financial Center. We all enjoyed it. We appreciate your energy, which came through despite the heat of a humid sticky night. Thanks."
New Jersey "Saw another great RT concert last night in NYC at the Hudson River Fest. Almost had the pleasure of literally running into Mr. Thompson inside the World Financial Center. I arrived early for the show and bought a tea and was about to sit down when I noticed him being escorted by security to the green room. My manners kicked in, though, and rather than closing the 20' gap that separated us, I just sat down in the lobby. I would have liked to greet him in person; maybe the next time!"
Virginia Don't forget The Birchmere!
florida How do I get a copy of Miscellaneous Songs?
New York The show at WFC was super! great to see/hear RT live.
"June 30, 2005"

New York "Great show at World Financial Center Tuesday evening - I've had "Pharaoh" playing in my head the past three days (and if it persists much longer I'm going to need help). Thanks for a wonderful evening."
New York He is still the best!
