Nils Lofgren: 50 Years... Up the Road

Nils Lofgren pulling over the impressive feat of kicking and playing guitar simultaneously

Marking 50 years as a touring musician, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and E Street Band Member Nils Lofgren plays a solo show accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Greg Varlotta.

The UK has become a home from home for Nils over the last half century as his first port of call for touring after the U.S. He will be drawing from a repertoire developed over a lifetime in Rock and Roll, sharing memorable stories along the way. And for this run of shows Nils and Greg will be using a whole host of new instruments to add colour and depth to an already impressive set list.
