Fearless recording artist, tireless live performer and peerless political campaigner Billy Bragg returns to Bristol in 2021 to perform live at O2 Academy. Following three sold out performances last year, Bragg hopes that this autumn tour will give us the uplift that live music brings to audience and performer alike.

Famous for his sharp wit Bragg’s songs present “the perfect Venn diagram between the political and the personal” (Guardian) in a way that both warms your heart and puts fire in your soul. Bragg says “In these challenging times, we all need something to hang on to” and we can hardly wait to welcome this brilliant live performer back to Bristol.
