A three-day, huge weekend of live music will take place at Lincolnshire Showground in Lincoln from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd July.
Spanning chart topping soul and pop from Simply Red (Fri), new wave and mod revival from Paul Weller (Sat) and baritone bluesy grooves from Rag ‘N’ Bone Man (Sun), there is something for everyone at these events. The weekend is set to be a huge celebration for Lincolnshire as Bedford-based independent promoter, LPH Concerts & Events brings these global superstars to Lincoln.
On Friday 1st July, music fans in their masses will flock to Lincolnshire Showground to hear one of the UK’s biggest bands, Simply Red, perform a catalogue of unforgettable hits, including ‘Something Got Me Started’, ‘Fairground’ and the US #1 hits, ‘Holding Back The Years’ and ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’. Mick Hucknall and his band will be joined by very special guest, UK soulful dance diva, Lisa Stansfield, and the Broadway / West End star and BBC Radio 2 favourite, Marisha Wallace.
Saturday sees The Modfather himself, Paul Weller, take to the stage. Few artists have influenced music like Paul Weller and now audiences at Lincolnshire Showground can enjoy live performances of both new material from his 17th solo album ‘An Orchestrated Songbook’ to classics from his back catalogue such as ‘Wild Wood’, ‘Wake Up the Nation’ and ‘You Do Something To Me’. The special guest on the night is the highly respected songwriter and two-time Mercury Prize nominee, Richard Hawley (formerly of Britpop favourites The Longpigs and Pulp), with support from breakout singer-songwriter, Andrew Cushin (signed to Pete Doherty’s Strap Originals label).
Closing out this weekend on Sunday 3rd July is the internationally acclaimed singer / songwriter, Rory Graham a.k.a Rag ‘N’ Bone Man. The multiple BRIT Award winner hit #1 in the UK with his debut album ‘Human’, also crashing into charts across the world. Thousands of fans at Lincolnshire Showground will be able to sing along to his huge hits including, ‘Human’, ‘Skin’, ‘Giant’ (his collaboration with superstar producer Calvin Harris) and other tracks from his latest UK #1 album ‘Life By Misadventure’ – the fastest-selling album by a solo artist in 2021. Special guest in Lincoln is indie singer / songwriter and BBC Radio 1 favourite, Jade Bird, with support from Hull’s rising star, Charlotte Jane.
