Seven-time GRAMMY winner Beck returns to the UK with two summer shows, hot-on-the-heels of his critically acclaimed, sold-out 2019 headline tour of the US. NME heaped praise on the New York date stating that ‘with an arsenal of bonafide classics to dip into and a carpe diem attitude fuelling his fire, this could well be one of Beck’s best (tours)’ ( **** 4 stars). With a set drawing from every era of Beck’s unrivalled back catalogue, The Times heaped praise on his last visit to UK stating that ‘With a huge range of material and exuberant band, (Beck) was like a one-man festival’ (**** Four stars) and that‘Among modern pop stars perhaps only Prince had more range…. a ruthless maestro in playful mood.’ The Guardian reflected the same celebratory mood, noting that ‘The pop maverick marshalled his many guises for an exhilarating two-hour set that veered from acoustic ballads to rubbery funk and jerky new wave.’ ( **** 4 stars). Away from the live arena, Beck remains as creatively restless as ever, a master of reinvention achieving yet another career peak in the studio. As the title of his critically acclaimed new 14th album Hyperspace implies, Beck has travelled light-years from his emergence as a reluctant generational spokesperson. In the decades since, Beck's singular career has seen him utilize all manners and eras of music, blurring boundaries and blazing a path into the future while simultaneously foraging through the past.
