Former lead singer of Graham and the Rumour, Graham Parker, performs at Arlington Arts on Saturday 07 December.
Regarded as one of the UK’s most distinguished and original songwriters Graham Parker is perhaps best known as lead singer of Graham & The Rumour who preceded the arrival of punk rock and new wave, his career has spanned over 40 years and was recently reinvigorated when acclaimed US film producer and director Judd Apatow cast Parker in his hit film ‘This Is 40’, featuring a performance by GP & The Rumour that signalled the band to reform to play a series of now legendary come back concerts.
Expect songs from early albums with the Rumour, including picks from the re-worked Squeezing Out Sparks solo acoustic 40th anniversary album (released March 2019), his solo career (Cloud Symbols) and tunes from recent Rumour reunion albums.
The support on the Graham Parker tour will be Stephen Wilson Jnr.
