Over 30 years at the top of the rock tree has established 'The Boss' as one of America's musical legends. Despite being best known for his massively popular eighties albums such as 'Born In The USA' and 'Nebraska', he has developed a more mature sound in the last few years with hits like 'The Streets Of Philadelphia' and 'The Ghost Of Tom Joad'. His album 'The Rising', penned as a response to the terrorist attacks on New York, has catapulted him back into the limelight and proves that Bruce was 'Born To Run'.

Born and raised in Ohio, Radin turned to music when he moved to New York City, bought a guitar, and taught himself to play and write music. His delicate and heartbreaking music has garnered comparisons to classic singer-songwriters such as Nick Drake and Simon & Garfunkel, to modern-day luminaries such as Elliott Smith.
Joshua Radin tour dates
The Low Anthem's stunning music ranges from evocative folk ballads sung in gorgeous falsettos, to garage in a Tom Waits bar-room style. The Low Anthem are four multi-instrumentalists: Ben Knox Miller, also the primary vocalist, Jeff Prystowsky, Jocie Adams, and newest member Mat Davidson.
The Low Anthem tour dates
Originally an offshoot of the primordial Rolling Stones, lead guitarist Dick Taylor broke away to form The Pretty Things in 1962. Securing a major label deal within months of their inception, the band attracted press attention with their unfettered power and controversial, unkempt appearance, their raunchy style of R&B spawned a run of successful releases. By 1967, The Pretty Things had become immersed in the underground psychedelic scene, developing a more harmony-led, experimental sound. Continuing to play live and record, The Pretty Things continue their evolution as an enduring musical force.
