Folk musician Richard Thompson has announced that he will play a show at the Royal Albert Hall on 30 Sep to mark his 70th birthday. Various artists with whom he has worked over his 50 year career are set to perform with him on the night, which should make it a memorable affair.

“Please join me as I celebrate my 70th birthday with an evening of music”, says Thompson. “The venue is the Royal Albert Hall, London, the date is 30 Sep, there will be many guests covering 50 years plus of music and a memorable evening guaranteed”.

I mean, I basically just said all of that. I really feel like no one is paying any attention to me whatsoever sometimes. But whatever, tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am. Lucky I remembered to say that, not that anyone will thank me.
