English singer-songwriter Lloyd Cole will be returning to Australia in January to celebrate the release of his new anthology, The Retrospective.
The release of 2015’s Lloyd Cole and the Commotions Collected Recordings 1983-1989 saw a resurgence in acclaim and interest, prompting a second printing due in March, a second set in the works for September, and now an international tour.
The Retrospective – playing the Lloyd Cole songbook 1983-1996 – will see Cole performing songs exclusively from this classic period, spanning his time as the lead singer of Lloyd Cole and the Commotions as well as his subsequent and substantial solo work. It will cover Cole’s first four solo albums and the lost fifth album, as well as rarities and videos, and the concerts will be mostly acoustic affairs.
Lloyd Cole is no stranger to Australian shores, from his time as front-man for The Commotions and their stadium tour of 1986, through to his Standards Australian Tour of 2014 and the many solo tours he has performed in between, Lloyd has proved a very welcome visitor regularly selling out shows right around the country.
Be sure not to miss him this time around as he flies solo and performs some of his best loved material!
