Gruff Rhys Is Coming To Where??!! Harrogate Thats Where!! 18th July Harrogate Theatre


Harrogate Theatre has managed a major coup with Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals singer) coming to town on the 18th July (tickets on sale now visit for details) Below is a quick career sum up of what Gruff has being doing since the Super Furries went in to hiberation (no they havent split just having a break!!)
On 24 January 2005, Gruff Rhys released his first solo album, Yr Atal Genhedlaeth on the Placid Casual label. This was a loose, sketchy, all-Welsh-language album, with most of the instruments played by Rhys. A tour of Wales and several festival appearances followed. After SFA signed to Rough Trade, the new label agreed to take on his solo work as well and on 8 January 2007 they released Candylion, a batch of acoustic pop songs in English, Spanish and Welsh, which Rhys wrote whilst touring Love Kraft but which didn’t fit with the direction of the new SFA album. A third solo album by Rhys, Hotel Shampoo was released on 14 February 2011. On the 4 March 2011, it was announced that Gruff will be playing at Glastonbury 2011.
So who needs Glastonbury when you can nip to Harrogate!! No need to worry about the toilets and shower facilities here.
The venue is a beautiful and ornate one, visit the website and you can get a full low down of its history.
Also check out what else they have on, their roster its extensive.
Be quick tickets for this show are selling fast!
