Graham Coxon is widely regarded as one the greatest musicians of his generation. As the lead guitarist in Blur, he helped define the Britpop era. As a solo artist, he’s released eight studio albums since his debut ‘The Sky is Too High’ 16 years ago, including the hugely successful ‘Happiness In Magazines’. More recently Graham released his most critically acclaimed album to date, ‘A+E’, in 2012, and has been touring the world with Blur. This July, Graham Coxon takes to the stage at London’s Hyde Park, for what will surely be the highlight of the afternoon.
Forming at the turn of the century, The Libertines have become one of the most influential and important bands of their generation. Leading the charge with Pete Doherty and Carl Barat as song writing partners, their on stage chemistry and intense live performances have enthralled fans and critics alike since their debut album ‘Up The Bracket’ in 2002. Following this with their second LP in 2004, ‘The Libertines’ shot straight to #1, catapulting them into the mainstream. Disbanding soon after that release, they went their separate ways for six years, cementing their almost mythical status.
