Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool | Liverpool, EN
AdvertisementJohn Altman – musician, composer, raconteur – tells revealing and hilarious stories from his amazing 50-year career in a special evening at the Liverpool Philharmonic Music Room.
John has worked with a who's who of film and music icons, from David Bowie, Prince and Michael Jackson to George Michael, Diana Ross, Rod Stewart and Pharrell Williams. He was Van Morrison's musical director for many years, arranged Always Look on the Bright Side of Life for Monty Python; put together Bjork's classic 'It's Oh So Quiet'; mentored the pre-fame Amy Winehouse; crossed paths with Charlie Chaplin, Nick Drake and Slim Gaillard; and worked on the soundtracks for films as diverse as Titanic, Little Voice and No Time to Die, the last James Bond film. He was in Hot Chocolate, too. And, as a child, appeared onstage with Judy Garland.
John has a unique perspective on the music and film worlds of the last half-century and we are excited to welcome him for this special evening.
John will be in Conversation with journalist Duncan Steer, who has also recently hosted book launch shows with musicians Nick Lowe and Baxter Dury. There will also be a chance to ask your own questions.
Tickets are £15 or £32 including a book.
