To celebrate the release of the new 1983 - 1996 anthology, Lloyd will perform songs exclusively from this classic period.
Yes, it was me who opened his solo venture with a song called 'Don't Look Back'. I know, I know...
However, the release of 2015's 'Lloyd Cole and the Commotions Collected Recordings 1983-1989' was received to universal warmth and acclaim, and it sold out far more quickly than UMG anticipated. It spans 1989 - 1996, my first four solo albums, the lost fifth album, plus rarities and videos.
These boxes are a lot of work, much of which can only be done by me. I must revisit and rediscover material. I am necessarily in retrospective mode. I have decided to embrace it.
My set list will be comprised of material from 1983 - 1996 only. Once the world has seen the Retrospective Show I will resume my work as a contemporary artist.
