More information about Simon Townshend Cd Launch tickets
Simon Townshend has been guitarist and vocalist in The Who since 1996, playing sold out tours around the world, including monumental performances at the 2010 Super Bowl and the closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics. On 01 April 2014, Simon released his new solo album DENIAL, and his Solo Acoustic CD Launch at the Eel Pie Club is on the eve of The Who’s final tour date at London’s O2. Cited as his most personal and affecting work to date, many of the tracks on DENIAL were inspired by events surrounding his family: some joyful, some difficult, some tragic. “I couldn’t help writing. It was inspirational and, for me, the best medicine is writing because it heals me….This album was born out of real life experience. Pain and joy, agony and ecstasy. I seem to document my life through my music – this album is no exception. In fact, more so than anything I’ve produced before, this is the real me. I put down the basic tracks quickly. I recorded them as soon after writing as possible to keep the spirit and excitement there, rarely using click tracks……There’s a certain nakedness. When you’re just standing on a stage with a guitar, it comes down to the bare bones. If the songs are strong, people really like it. It’s something that I love doing”.
Simon received rave reviews for his work as guitarist and vocalist on The Who’s 2012/2013 Quadrophenia and More Tour. When not performing with The Who, he’s committed to an extensive solo touring schedule”. As London’s Gig Guide said, “you would be a fool to miss him.” www.simontownshend.com/ Plus support tbc.
