Nils Lofgren Announces May 2018 UK Tour.

The tour is called ’50 Years… Up The Road’.

Cristina Arrigoni

It seems decades since I first saw NIls Lofgren (then with his brother Tommy on his band) – and it is! – Not just playing and singing but bouncing off a trampoline at Hammersmith Odeon on a bill with Tom Petty & The misspent youth eh ? Now he brings his unique voice and stylish instrumental skills to the UK on tour: 

Celebrating his 50th year of touring professionally, Legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame E Street Band Member and solo artist Nils Lofgren makes his first return to the UK in three years for a 15 city tour, accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Greg Varlotta.

The UK has become his most frequent touring stop outside of the U.S. for half a century. Drawing from an expansive repertoire of a lifetime in Rock and Roll, and sharing many memorable stories along the way, Nils will pick up on the magical experience of his last critically acclaimed UK run.

Nils and Greg will use a multitude of instruments to add color and depth to these new shows. Nils, along with his lovely wife Amy, plan as always to spend time visiting with fans after the performance concludes, in what has become the ‘show after the show’. They always ask the venues to keep the pub open afterwards, too!

Nils says “I’ve never felt more welcome or at home touring than in the UK. I’m honored and grateful to celebrate my 50th year on the road there with Amy, Greg and our great UK crew, for an inspired night of music and friends. We love the UK audiences. Please come join us!”
