Saturday 2nd December 2006
- Doors Open:
Having already completed two sold-out UK tours this year, plus a 30,000-capacity solo show at Old Trafford cricket ground, his biggest headline show since his days in The Verve, Richard Ashcroft will end 2006 with a UK Arena tour including the Metro Radio Arena Newcastle on Saturday 2nd December 2006.
2006 is shaping up to be Richard Ashcroft’s most successful year in a decade. He’s back on magazine front covers, back in the charts and back on top form. His new album ‘Keys To The World’ has been certified platinum and has spawned the hit singles ‘Break The Night With Colour’, ‘Music Is Power’, and ‘Words Just Get In The Way’.
Metro Radio Arena’s Marketing Director Paul Tappenden said: - “Richard Ashcroft last played at the Metro Radio Arena in December 2005 to a sell out audience at the record breaking Coldplay concert. The announcement of his own UK tour is another sensational hot ticket concert announcement."
Tickets costing £23.50 go on sale Friday 21st July 2006.
