The acoustic shows will highlight a fresh take on Howard’s best-known hits and will provide a rare and intimate opportunity for the audience to hear first-hand about the inspiration behind Howard’s beloved material, plus fascinating recollections from his international touring career.

Hailed by many as an electronic music pioneer, Howard Jones has been a constant presence on the international touring scene for the past three decades, playing live in several configurations including intimate solo shows and dates with his full high-tech band set-up. His most recent album, the Top 40 'Transform', is his first new studio album in nearly a decade. Originally released in 2019 to critical acclaim, 'Transform' features several collaborations with electronica luminary BT.

Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music scene in 1983, with his very English song-writing and pioneering synthesizers. His first two albums 'Human’s Lib' and 'Dream into Action' were worldwide hits. 'Human’s Lib' reached #1 in 1984 in the UK and featured the hits 'New Song', and 'What Is Love?'.

In 1985, Jones released the follow-up, 'Dream into Action', which quickly became a Top Ten Platinum album in North America. It featured the smash hit singles 'Things Can Only Get Better', 'Life In One Day', 'No One Is To Blame', and 'Like To Get To Know You Well'. Howard Jones has sold over 8 million albums worldwide and continues to make new music and tour the world. He recently performed on NBC’s top-rated morning and night-time television shows respectively, 'Today' and 'The Tonight Show' (the latter hosted by Jimmy Fallon).

Special guest will be Roxanne de Bastion, a pioneering DIY singer-songwriter who was the first artist to virtually tour during lockdown. To date she has performed an incredible run of over five hundred gigs, including two USA tours and a slot at Glastonbury; she has self-released a debut album ‘Heirlooms and Hearsay’ (2017); was invited to join the FAC’s (Featured Artist Coalition) Board of Directors (alongside members of British music royalty Blur and Radiohead); and more recently procured Bernard Butler to produce her forthcoming album ‘You & Me, We Are The Same’, by emailing him a demo.

“I am really excited about the trio tour we have planned for 2022. Nick and Robin are dear friends and world class musicians and I love performing with them. After touring the trio in America, I thought the time was right for us to bring the fun of this acoustic show back home. I will play a range of songs from the Hojo canon including the hits old and new as well as some deep cuts and fan favourites.”
