Robert Wyatt To Appear In London

Robert Wyatt To Appear In London

Original 60s art rocker Robert Wyatt is to appear 'in conversation' at a special one-off event in October.

The talk at London's Southbank Centre Purcell Rooms on October 15 will see the musical genius discuss his new album 'Comicopera' as well as take questions from fans in the audience.

Commenting on the new LP, Wyatt has said: "It's really about the unpredictable mischief of real life - it's sort
of chaotic our life. It's about humans and the things we turn to, and looking for fun and stimulus and meaning and stuff."

Throughout his long career, Wyatt has collaborated with a diverse range of artists including Henry Cow, Carla Bley and Brian Eno.

Tickets for the event are £6.
