  4. Luke Wright: new show to tour in 2022
Luke Wright 2459 Land by Emily Fae

Whether he’s playing master of ceremonies at a Libertines show in front of 5,000 screaming rock fans or reciting Georgian ballads down your local, Luke Wright is adept at taking poetry to places it doesn’t normally go. His poems can be tender, riotous, caustic and romantic and he delivers them with the ferocity and panache of a raconteur at the top of his game.

Now Luke is preparing for an extensive tour the UK in 2022 with an all new show of poems. The tour will visit the length and breadth of Britain, from The Channel Islands to Scotland with a London date at Kings Place on 10 March.

In the show his deliciously funny poems are set against a backdrop of pandemic politics, ageing parents, and an endless, droning culture war. Wright throws a squat party in his ‘poor old heart’, featuring a cast of murderous swans, sozzled devils, and the people we most want to protect.

He said ‘usually I spend much of the year touring around the world so the pandemic lockdown’s gave me time to reflect more and think about how the pandemic has affected people from all walks of life. After so long It’s going to be a thrill to take this new collection of poems on tour’.
