The singer-songwriter brings a special show joined by founding members of The Commotions, performing songs from 1984 to his 2023 album, On Pain

Lloyd Cole's decade's long career has seen him explore multiple genres; from alt-rock and folk to recent experiments with electronica, all whilst staying true to his lush songcraft and lyrical wit. 

For this special show he is joined by The Commotions bandmates  Blair Cowan & Neil Clark, journeying through Cole's illustrious back-catalogue. 

With On Pain, Lloyd Cole says he continues to find 'new methods, new perspectives, new sounds'. 

The end time for this performance will be added closer to the date.
