Join us as we welcome Baxter Dury to Concorde 2.

Spinning wry, observant stories of life among the well-heeled but poorly behaved, Baxter Dury, the son of pub rock/new wave icon Ian Dury, is a songwriter and vocalist with a strong and distinctive style. After a tempestuous early life, he began his musical career by performing at a memorial service for his dad, then produced a series of albums beginning with 2002's Len Parrot's Memorial Lift that balanced his deadpan vocals and debauched storytelling with subtle chamber pop arrangements and a nervy modern new wave approach. By the time of 2017's Prince of Tears, some disco began to slip into his sound as he cemented his place as one of the wittiest, most biting songwriters of his era.
