Nils Lofgren hails playing acoustic guitar
Nils Lofgren is swapping his electric guitar for an acoustic guitar on his upcoming UK tour.
The musician has played with the likes of Ringo Starr, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen throughout his career but is also an established artist in his own right.
He will be playing a series of acoustic gigs around Britain alongside Greg Varlotta in places such as Basingstoke, Salford, London and Cambridge.
Speaking to the Basingstoke Gazette, Lofgren commented: "These acoustic shows really put you in an intimate setting where you have to respond to the audience."
He revealed that he has been warming up for his jaunt around Britain with a few gigs in the US, which he said have "broken the ice"
Lofgren added that he has "really missed" playing smaller theatres in the UK and engaging with fans by signing items at the merchandise table.
The tour, which commences on October 12th 2010, will also call at towns and cities including Bristol, Glamorgan, Derby, Dorking and Preston.
