Chester to Honour Rock Icons

Grade-listed city landmark Chester Cathedral has announced it will be hosting a celebration of the world-famous UK rockers Radiohead. Originally from Abingdon in Oxfordshire, the world-famous group formed by singer-songwriter Thom Yorke rose to prominence in the 90s, leading to critically acclaimed albums like The Bends, In Rainbows and OK Computer.

The upcoming musical event at the cathedral will feature a first-class tribute act performing hidden gems and well-known hits from Radiohead’s constantly expanding songbook. Honouring the three decades of music produced by the band, the occasion is ideal for lifelong followers and new music enthusiasts alike. Songs on the night will be sourced from the nine albums Radiohead has released to the date, offering something for everyone.

The live band for the evening event is set to be led by frontman Christopher Buckle, with able support from local musicians and avid Radiohead fans Lewis Heeley, Alfie Woods, and Daniel Anketell. Ewan Steady will provide musical direction and the band will be accompanied by a string section as special guests. Nationally renowned players, Mike Nowland, Hannah Paterson, Mathias Svensson, and Caroline Boddimead will help create multi-layered sonic experience for audiences in attendance.

The Evening of Radiohead at Chester Cathedral will take place at Chester Cathedral on Saturday, April 6. The cathedral can be found on St Werburgh Street in Chester, and doors to event will open at 7.30 pm.

The Chester concert is two and half hours long, and admission will be charged at £38.62 per person.
