Razorlight announced for Heritage Live’s concert series at Audley End

Heritage Live has announced that Razorlight will headline a huge outdoor show in the stunning grounds of English Heritage’s Audley End House & Gardens this summer.

The band, famously led by Johnny Borrell, are the latest addition to the outdoor concert series which this year also includes Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Soft Cell, and Sir Tom Jones.


Special guests for the event, which takes place on Sunday, August 13, will be Embrace, alongside The Feeling and Toploader.

Tickets for the show will be available via pre-sale next Tuesday (April 18) at 9am. Customers must pre-register at arep.co/p/razorlight to purchase tickets.

London quartet Razorlight formed in 2002 when Borrell joined up with Swedish guitarist Björn Ågnen. They instantly hit on a winning formula, straddling the emerging scenes in both New York and Camden with their angular, pop-inspired indie rock.

With engaging hooks, the band quickly amassed a slew of hits from their 2004 debut Up All Night, and its even more successful 2006 self-titled follow up. Tours with Queen and Oasis introduced the quartet to the masses and single America, recently covered by country-pop duo Ward Thomas, gave the band their first UK number one single.

Following a series of line-up changes Borrell remained the only original member of the band and put Razorlight on hold in 2011. Now, Borrell and long-time drummer Andy Burrows have patched up their differences and make up the group’s current line-up along with original bassist Carl Dalemo who has also re-joined.
