Loudon Wainwright III Hits the UK for Dates

If you don’t love Loudon Wainwright III then you’re going to hell, that’s what it says in the bible, but you can prove yourself before God (capital G, just in case) by seeing him live in the UK next month, his first dates here since 2013.   His shows will include a concert at the London Palladium on Fri Oct 21st,  and special guest on all shows will be his long-time friend, collaborator and fellow singer-songwriter, Chaim Tannenbaum.   Wainwright was last in the UK in April 2015 for a brief visit when he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.  He’ll be performing  songs from his rather extensive back-catalogue plus new music from his most recent album, Haven’t Got The Blues (Yet).  It followed his acclaimed Older Than My Old Man Now album from 2012—“my death n’ decay opus,” as Wainwright calls it.
