Live Review

We booked Adrian Nation for a support slot at Liverpool Acoustic Live and as soon as he started playing we knew we’d made a big mistake… this guy should have been headlining! Adrian’s performance was a wonder to behold, one of those once in a blue moon “why haven’t we booked this guy before?” moments followed immediately by “when can we get him back?”. His set was full of memorable songs of impressive variety showing light and shade, depth and warmth. Adrian himself had an incredible empathy with the audience that was so natural and unforced, and don’t get me started on his jaw-droppingly good guitar playing!

If any promoters, organisers or venues get the chance to book Adrian Nation trust me, I promise you won’t be disappointed. And I guarantee afterwards you’ll be asking when you can book his return visit!
