John Grant performs with the Royal Northern Sinfonia.

His critically acclaimed second album Pale Green Ghosts was released last year.

Formerly of the band The Czars, Grant bridges lush 1970s FM with elements of synth-pop and industrial dance, and lyrics both thoughtful and forthright.

He makes a triumphant return to Southbank Centre after his sell-out appearance at Royal Festival Hall in 2011.

'It's hard to imagine a more enjoyable and rewarding hour of music being released this year than Pale Green Ghosts' ***** Album of the Week (The Guardian)
