RICHARD THOMPSON WILL BE RECORDING HIS UPCOMING WEST COAST BAND TOUR FOR A NEW ALBUM!
These performances will be part of a special RT tour with a full band performing two full sets. The first half will be brand-new, never heard before material, and will be recorded live at the show for inclusion on Richard's upcoming CD. This process is a rarity in today's music scene, where artists typically spend weeks or months in the studio recording new material. The second half of the show will include Richard Thompson classics from his over 40 years in the music business.
