FORMER Japan frontman David Sylvian is to bring his European tour to Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on March 27, as part of his first series of performances for five years.

Entitled Implausible Beauty 2012, some may have christened the project The Implausible Tour, as David has become increasingly reclusive and private in most aspects of his life and the notion of live performance seemingly anathema to him. However, recently, he has found a line-up of musicians with whom he’s genuinely excited to perform live and to whom he’s most grateful for their commitment.

The David Sylvian that fronted new wave pop band Japan wore luminescent hair and glam make-up. The new millennium has seen a more serious Sylvian, several steps further along on his musical journey and seeking new sounds to explain new traumas.

Ticket details for this eagerly-awaited show are available from the box office on 0115 9895555.
