Of his live set, Billboard hails, “Spellbinding, captivating, riveting, mesmerizing, dazzling—there aren’t enough words in the thesaurus to convey the bravura and depth it takes to hold an entire room in 2014 for two hours with no production, no visuals, no frills, just songs and stories.”

A limited number of advance tickets will be available to mailing list subscribers via www.damienrice.com. A 48-hour pre-sale window will begin on begin Wednesday, November 19 at 10 a.m. local time and general on-sale will begin Friday, November 21 at 10 a.m. local time. See below for details.
