Robyn Hitchcock Tickets
Sorry there are no shows for Robyn Hitchcock right now.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Retired Steve from Dissapointing - I think he had fallen out with the venue management We went on Sunday night and had bought the tickets 4 months in advance having seen him on a few YouTube folk collective nights at the Barbican . He was put in the games room not the main concert room and seemed put out by it. The games room at Brudenell isn't a great venue and he only did a short set and seemed in a poor mood. We left early before any encore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DaveB from Way to go, more to come What a performer. He just picked up his six-string that sounds like what I thought a 12-string is supposed to sound like, marched up to the mike and tore into it. Old songs, new songs; effortful, effortless. Unpigeonholeable. All interleaved with a running commentary full of humour and weird insights. I'm a recent arrival for this - all that time I lived in London and never knew anything abour Robyn Hitchcock, embarrassing, what a waste. Still, it looks like there is plenty of time to make amends, and you can still buy his old stuff online. Have a listen to "Brenda's Iron Sledge", definitely a song for these times even if not performed in this gig. I can't convey to you the character of the work, can't say it's "like" anything else. Check him out on Youtube. Definitely not your standard singer-songwriter. Todd Rundgren should have been as big as the Beatles, an insight that few people shared with Todd at the time! This guy to my mind is the English Dylan, whether people can see it or not, but here's where the analogy breaks down: I don't think he would even care about that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jetpack from Possibly the best gig I've ever been to (and I've been to a lot!) Robyn Hitchcock is an amazing performer. Have been a fan of his for many years but never realised until I saw him live how skilled he is at guitar playing. His voice is still amazing, too, and he's so funny. The Philharmonic Liverpool where I saw him has brilliant acoustics (which made Robyn perform longer than usual, luckily for us!) and is an intimate and pleasant venue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonnyHughes1990 from Goodnight Oslo...or Leeds... I love Robyn Hitchcock. His unique, quintessentially British songs make him a national treasure/cult hero/fantastic songwriter. This was my first time seeing him live, and he didn't disappoint. Supported by the wonderful Emma Swift, Robyn's intimate songs suited the small venue choice, and I imagine it worked well in other smaller venues on this tour. His wit and dialogue between songs was funny, and I'd definitely recommend seeing him in the future should you get the chance. The Brudenell is a perfect venue, one of the best for small gigs in the country, and Robyn is great live.
