Josh Ritter to play intimate show at St. Barnabas Chapel in London + tour dates

The Historic Conquests of Josh Ritter

Josh Ritter has announced that he will play at the incredibly intimate St. Barnabas Chapel in Central London on Tuesday 1st April, 2008.

The candle lit affair will showcase tracks from Josh's glorious current album 'The Historical Conquests Of Josh Ritter' including new single "Empty Hearts" released March 31st.

The 100-capacity venue will hold host to a handful of hardcore fans, TV and press. Performing acoustically, this special one-off performance will nestle in between Josh's current UK tour that concludes on the 5th April, and then on to his US tour.

The Idaho musician wowed crowds at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire and scored rave reviews for his LP 'The Historic Conquests of Josh Ritter', which The Guardian hailed as one of the ultimate LPs of last year.

Currently gaining steam and receiving increasing critical acclaim, this is an amazing opportunity to watch this unique performer in a jaw-droppingly ornate venue.
