Rated 5 out of 5 by from Folk rock Dinasaur No!! Seen the great RT many times in many venues. As always great guitar played with gusto, no-one gets more sound from an accoustic. All the favourite tunes plus a smattering of new material to keep it fresh. Richard's voice has got better with age, plenty of light and shade.Great support act too, from Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker. Just moved to East Anglia and tours don't always make it to Norwich, so more of the same or similar please. The Theatre Royal is a great venue, been updated sympathetically yet retains a great intimacy and great sightlines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I’ve been a fan of Richard Thompson for over 40 years but have not been able to see him since 1998. It was very emotional for me because he wrote the soundtrack to my adult life and his songs have brought me joy through some very dark times. He’s ageless and a real force of nature. It’s the first time my wife has been to see him live. We had a wonderful evening.
