Richard Thompson @ Symphony Space
Songwriting giant, Fairport Convention founding member and one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Richard Thompson flips the concert experience for this special show where spontaneity replaces the setlist. He’ll be letting the audience decide what he plays, in real time, and unknown to all (including Thompson) until the moment he draws an audience request onstage.
