After his sold-out solo tour in 2012  and winning The Roots Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Billy Bragg returns to The Queen's Hall with his full band. He was recently described by The Times newspaper as a “national treasure” and over two decades, Bragg has made an indelible mark on the conscience of British music.

He has just released Tooth & Nail, his first new studio album in five years which draws on personal rather than political themes. It was recorded over a whirlwind five-day session with Grammy Award winning producer Joe Henry (whose impeccable production credits include Aimee Mann, Elvis Costello and Hugh Laurie) in his South Pasadena basement studio. With Joe taking Billy out of his comfort zone the album features an accomplished crew of musicians, including Greg Leisz (Bon Iver), Patrick Warren (Lana Del Rey), Jay Bellerose (Regina Spektor) and David Piltch (Ramblin’ Jack Eliot). The spontaneous results are, according to Billy, a return to the rootsy sound of 1998’s Mermaid Avenue sessions he recorded with Wilco.
