Ezra Furman at Colston Hall on Thursday 24th May 2018Posted on: 23 May 2018
Singer-songwriter Ezra Furman will perform at Bristol's Colston Hall on Thursday 24th May 2018.
The alternative and indie musician performed a stellar set on the main stage of 2016's BBC 6 Music Festival, and his Bristol visit is sure to whip up his rapidly-increasing fanbase for a fun, foot-stomping gig.
Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, Furman is also the frontman for the bands Ezra Furman & the Boy-Friends and Ezra Furman and the Harpoons and, as well as regularly touring with them, he also takes time out to be on on his lonesome for stand-alone, on-his-own concerts.
This year saw the release of his new album Transangelic Exodus, which, for the man himself, represented something of a seismic musical shift combining a combo of true memoir, fiction and "cluster of stories on a theme".
As well as the main man himself, he'll be supported by Newcastle-upon-Tyne-born composer and multi-disciplinary musician Du Blonde.
Tickets cost £19.35 (incl. booking fee) and can be purchased here.
Colston Hall is located at Colston Street, Bristol BS1 5AR. Tel. 0844 887 1500

He loves the music of Philip Glass, the art of Salvador Dali, the writings of Charles Bukowksi and Hunter S Thompson, the irreverence of Harry Hill, and the timeless, straw-chomping exuberance of The Wurzels.
