Tom Odell - at Bedgebury - friday 19 June 2015
We are delighted to confirm the uniquely talented Tom Odell has announced a very special tour of the nation’s forests for 2015 and will be coming to Bedgebury on friday 19 June.
When the exceptionally talented Tom Odell released his debut album ‘Long Way Down’ in June 2013 it shot straight to number one. He heard the news whilst performing on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury that year. Described by The Telegraph as “utterly compelling”, singles from the album including ‘Can’t Pretend’, ‘Hold Me’ and the gargantuan ‘Another Love’ illustrate a song-writing maturity beyond his years. This has resulted in his achieving the ultimate industry accolade of ‘Songwriter of the Year’ at the 2014 Ivor Novello Awards as well as previously winning the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award for 2013. Following a succession of sold out headline tours and with ‘Long Way Down’ being certified gold, a packed summer of festival appearances in 2014 included V Festival, Isle of Wight and a show supporting one of his idols Neil Young at Hyde Park. Chosen to perform the soundtrack to this year’s John Lewis Christmas advert, the 24-year-old has added his spine-tingling vocals to a cover of John Lennon’s classic ‘Real Love’, generating millions of YouTube views. Tom is currently in the studio recording his new album.
Tickets £34.50 (plus £3.45 booking fee) go on sale from 9.00am Friday 19 December from Forestry Commission Box Office or ring 03000 680400
