Queen Elizabeth Hall, London 9 February 2012

To support the release of I Will Set You Free, Barry Adamson played a show at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall on 9 February. Adamson and his band – Ian Ross on drums, Nick Plytas on keys, Bobby Williams on guitar and Maxwell Sterling on bass, with the Trinity Strings and Steve Hamilton's horn quartet – tore through tracks mostly taken from I Will Set You Free and its predecessor, Back To The Cat. Support came from The Gilded Palace Of Sin and comedian Simon Day reading poems as Geoffrey Allerton.

I reviewed the concert for Clash's website with photos by Andy Sturmey. The full review can be reached by clicking here.
