What people are saying about Hugh Cornwell

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t miss this great show from the former Stranglers legend As a life long Stranglers fan I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to see the former frontman and songwriter Hugh Cornwell in the relatively intimate surroundings of the Phoenix Centre. Billed as a 2 part set with a solo review for the first hour and then ‘the hits’ after a short break. I had a few concerns. Hugh left the Stranglers a long time ago and whilst he has remained active with a successful solo career....could he still cut it? Also, how enthusiastically would he reprise the golden years that 90% of the audience had come to hear? Having had some disappointing experiences in this regard with other artists my expectations were modest. Any concerns were quickly dealt with. First up Hugh looks and sounds unbelievably good. His voice has lost none of its power or character and it is easy forget what a great guitarist he is. With his tight 3 piece band he breezed smoothly through his excellent solo work with some nice chat between songs. The audience were warming up nicely. The much anticipated second half started with a clever and innovative ‘Golden Brown’ (not easy as a 3 piece!!) followed by classics such as (an excellent) Peaches, Straighten Out,Always the Sun,Tank,Nice’n’Sleazy,No Mercy and All Quiet on The Eastern Front. Each song was subtly reworked but faithful to the originals and everyone in the audience was clearly very,very happy. I would like to stayed to get some merch signed and meet him after the show but had to leave. For those who could do so it would have rounded off a very enjoyable evening. If you get the chance to see Hugh Cornwell on this tour - DON’T miss it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind blowingly good gig I attended this gig with an old friend with a shared connection to old stranglers songs, his newer stuff was pretty good but nothing can come close to classics. It took me straight back to my early to late teens and at one point brought a tear to my eye wishing one of my old friends had been there who unfortunately passed away a few years back. Brilliant gig!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic night In went to see Hugh with my hubby, who first saw The Stranglers aged 14! Hugh and his band were amazing. First set was Hugh's newer stuff, a break and then into the Stranglers set which set the place alive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Hugh Cornwell as good as ever and value for money. First half was songs from his latest album second half crammed full of Stranglers hits. So good! Venue surprisingly good. Bit of a squash but managed to get a good spot. Can't wait till his next tour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great night out! I went with my partner. We were keen to experience the Brudenell Social Club as our sons are regular visitors. I was particularly keen to see Hugh Cornwall as I was a fan of the The Stranglers in the 70's+80's.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing We were stranglers fans back in the day , this was not a patch on that style of music. We found the balance of instruments all wrong we couldn't hear the guitars over the drums , because all we could hear was the best of the drums it became very monotonous and we left before the end
