New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Nils Lofgren shows no signs of slowing down. When the E Street Band has down time, Nils seamlessly returns to his 47 year devoted solo artist fan base. After the successful release of an ambitious 10 disc career spanning retrospective last year entitled Face the Music , Nils began work putting together solo and duo acoustic shows to take on the road.

In January of 2015, Nils toured the UK to enthusiastic capacity audiences. Midway through the tour, his wife Amy insisted they record the last half of the tour, optimistic that it could lead to an album of live tracks that would capture the intimacy and inspiration they experienced night after night. The result is the UK2015 Face the Music Tour album, comprised of stellar performances by Nils Lofgren on vocals, keyboards, guitar and lever harp, and accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Greg Varlotta on vocals, keyboards, guitar, trumpet and tap dance percussion. As with all Nils' live shows, the passion, musicianship and wonderful stories from his long, exceptional musical journey are front and center on this new recording.

To commemorate the release of the album Nils will be returning to the UK at the end of October, for 21 shows. Prior to departing he will join his longtime friend Neil Young for the Bridge School Benefit Concert at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View California. Organized annually by Neil Young and his wife Pegi, this year's event will feature Neil Young and Promise of the Real, Nils Lofgren, Sheryl Crow, St Vincent, Gary Clark Jr and the Dixie Chicks, among others. Proceeds from Bridge School Benefit tickets go to the Bridge School which helps children with severe disabilities and communication impairments.

Nils will continue to tour acoustically in 2016 including confirmed shows in the USA that include stops in Durham NC (1/21/16) Atlanta GA (1/22/16), Nashville TN (1/23/16), Conroe TX (1/29/16), Dallas TX (1/30/16), Austin, TX (1/31/16 ), Oakland CA (3/9 and 3/10/16), Mill Valley, CA (3/11/16), Saratoga, CA (3/12/16 ), Staten Island NY (4/1/16), Alexandria, VA (4/22 and 4/23/16), Uncasville, CT (4/29/16), NYC (4/30/16), Minneapolis, MN (5/17 and 5/18/16), Milwaukee, WI (5/19/16), Chicago, IL (5/20/16), and Valparaiso, IN (5/21/16).

"In January 2015, after a three year break from our traditional acoustic UK tours, we headed back in the dead of Winter, excited for another run of shows, town to town, on the bus, sharing music that hopefully spreads some good will and hope to linger with the wonderful audiences we've had, decade after decade. Accompanied by Greg Varlotta, our friend and amazing, multi-instrumentalist and our stellar crew, we all set out to do special, inspired shows everywhere. We were all thrilled with the audience response and it was Amy who insisted we record the last half of the tour, optimistic it could lead to an album of live tracks to commemorate this wonderful UK run. She was right and here it is. We hope you all enjoy it. It really is the audience that breaths the life, fire and inspiration into every performance. God bless you all and thanks again for your presence and magical energy, night after night, town after town, note after note. Peace and Believe." - Nils Lofgren
