MANCHESTER ACADEMY 3
American pop and rock singer-songwriter Ron Pope has announced he will perform at Manchester Academy 3 in November as part of his 2017 Dancing Days World Tour, with tickets available early in our pre-sale starting from 9am on Thursday 27th April.
Fifteen years and seven studio albums into a career hovering at the edges of the music business, fighting for a seat at the table, Ron Pope is now in the midst of flipping that table over. It took over a decade to become an overnight success. Hundreds of millions of streams, millions of singles sold, concerts packed out into the street all over the world; all of a sudden Ron Pope is part of the discussion.
For his newest album “Work”, Pope once again co-produced with Grammy Award winner Ted Young (The Rolling Stones, Grace Potter, Sonic Youth). The duo decided to record in Nashville at Welcome to 1979, an analog-centric studio. For Pope, this album marked his first recorded to tape.
“On some of these songs, you can hear Nashville. On others, we’re walking down the street in New Orleans giving away beers to strangers, or I’m down on the Florida panhandle at 19 arguing with a frat boy when my blood ran a little hotter than it does now, or I’m back home in Georgia playing the bars I grew up in or singing quiet songs in my bedroom, looking back and looking forward; you find us a lot of places on this record.”
Ron Pope will be bringing his latest album “Work” and more to Manchester Academy 3 in November as part of his 2017 Dancing Days Tour. Tickets are available on pre-sale from 9am on Thursday 27th April.
