Richard Hawley There couldn’t be a more befitting end to an 18-month long tour for Richard Hawley and his band than to play Sheffield’s City Hall.

Love Revisited It’s ten years since the death of Arthur Lee, the genius songwriter and musician behind Love, one the seminal bands of the 1960s. Love's ‘Forever Changes’ is consistently voted one of the top albums of all time. For over a decade, until his passing in 2006, US indie group Baby Lemonade was Lee’s longest-serving Love touring band. Over that period they learnt his repertoire inside out, including playing on the seminal ‘Forever Changes’ live concert at The Royal Festival Hall in 2003, now documented on CD and DVD. They also appeared at Glastonbury that year (find this classic performance on YouTube).
