Richard Thompson touring, playing “All Requests” shows in NYC

Richard Thompson

Guitar god Richard Thompson is doing some touring through the end of 2019 and into 2020, with a few runs of special shows coming up. He’s playing a couple of “All Requests Live!” shows at NYC’s Symphony Space on Friday February 7 and Saturday February 8, 2020, where he’ll eschew a setlist in favor of spontaneity, letting the audience decide what he plays in real time by drawing requests onstage. With over 40 albums to his name (including the five he made with his band Fairport Convention and the many he released with his ex-wife Linda), fans have a lot to choose from. Tickets for the unique shows are on sale now.

In addition, Thompson has North American solo acoustic dates scheduled through February (New Year’s Eve in Chicago included), and in May he heads to South Africa for the Southern African Music Safari. See all of his upcoming dates are listed below.
