 Hugh Cornwell is one of the UK's finest songwriting talents and accomplished live performers.

This acoustic performance will feature songs spanning his entire career from early Stranglers to the current day, including new and never before performed songs from the next studio album ‘Villains’. 

As the original guitarist, singer and main songwriter in the British rock band The Stranglers, he's enjoyed massive success with 10 hit albums and 21 Top Forty singles, etching himself into Europe and the USA's musical psyche with classic songs, including Peaches, No More Heroes, Golden Brown, Nice N’ Sleazy, Always the Sun and Duchess.

Cornwell's last studio album TOTEM AND TABOO was released to rave reviews. Recorded at Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago, the album was engineered and mixed by the legendary Steve Albini.
