Why See Leon Bridges?
LEON BRIDGES EMBARKS ON GOOD THING TOUR!
The young Texan is going on tour in support of his sophomore album, Good Thing. The gospel and soul singer harks back to an older time, with a strong emphasis on 1960s rhythm and blues. He has gained national press attention for his work, with The Wall Street Journal describing him as a "throwback to '60s-soul a la Otis Redding and Sam Cooke". He also makes a point of performing in vintage clothing from the era, making his act a true throwback to nostalgic times.
Support for Bridges on the tour include: Jon Batiste & Stay Human, Khruangbin and Masego!
In a story that is stranger than fiction, Bridge's break into the music industry came about after a chance meeting with rock group White Denim's guitarist Austin Jenkins in a bar; Jenkins and fellow bandmate Joshua Block would go onto produce his first critically acclaimed single, "Coming Home".
Performance date: 15 September 2018
