Nick Lowe, the self-described “headmaster of British rock” comes to Denver on September 29. A year after his tour with Wilco and his latest album release, Nick shows us that at 63 years of age, there’s no sign of him quitting.
Nick, who has been performing for over 40 years, is well-known for such hits as “Cruel to Be Kind” and “I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass.” His 2011 release The Old Magic garnered ovations from Rolling Stone: “Lowe remains one of the sharpest lyricists in rock, with a talent for penning sharp, thoughtful lines that have a light, conversational tone.”
The Old Magic reflects a more mature Lowe, who has traded the long-haired rocker look of the 70’s for white hair and thick rimmed black glasses. In an interview with The New York Times he states, “I won’t have to continually be pretending, like a lot of my contemporaries sadly have to, that they’re still young and copping this act they used to do and are condemned to do. It’s a sort of unseemly sight, and one which I wish to avoid.”
