Richard Ashcroft – Hold On With the release of his highly anticipated new album These People imminent, Richard Ashcroft played a triumphant comeback show on Friday to an ecstatic, sold-out Albert Hall in Manchester. The set saw him perform tracks from the new album including singles ‘Hold On’ and ‘This Is How It Feels’ alongside classic songs from his solo career and The Verve. It serves to heighten anticipation for when he takes the stage at London’s Roundhouse tonight to continue his feverishly awaited live return, tickets for the show having sold out in a head spinning 25 minutes. Alongside, Richard has revealed a video for his latest single ‘Hold On’, taken from the forthcoming album. The track enjoyed an enthusiastic reception at radio, where it was quickly added to the A-List on BBC Radio 2, Radio X and Absolute Radio and the BBC 6 Music B-list.
