Legendary American songwriter, virtuoso guitarist and pianist Nils Lofgren returns to the UK this month for the first time since 2011. You can catch him at the Sage Gateshead on 23 January.


After touring with Bruce Springsteen as a long-time member of the E Street Band on both the 2012-13 Wrecking Ball tour and the 2014 High Hopes tour, Nils is back to perform his own live show.


Known for his world-class guitar playing and on-stage acrobatics, Nils is a rock legend in his own right: a superb front-man, both with Grin and under his own name.


Recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the E Street Band, Nils released Face the Music on last August – a 10-disc retrospective box-set of his 45 years of recording.


He will be joined for an acoustic set by multi-instrumentalist Greg Varlotta. Expect classic Lofgren favorites like ‘Shine Silently’, 'I Came to Dance', 'Keith Don't Go' and many others from his vast back catalogue.


Nils' singing and guitar playing voice remains as distinctive today as it's ever been:

Sage Gateshead 17 May If you didn’t see your local balding but long-haired, ageing prog-rocker on Wednesday night it was because he was at Sage One. Clad in a uniform of black tee-shirts and leather waistcoats an army of early Genesis fans descended on Gateshead to see Steve Hackett.  They weren’t disappointed as the guitarist who played on half a dozen early Genesis studio albums and three live ones turned on the style. As you’d expect from a tour that has already been...
