Excited to be joining The Rolling Stones in Manchester on 5th June and Edinburgh and 9th June. Tickets are on sale now. See you there: http://po.st/AshcroftStones
Given the criminally unfair story with Bittersweet Symphony, it is beyond incomprehensible that you are willing to perform as their support act. As long as their gig pays well, all is well? How about having some integrity and dignity? 🙄
The Rolling Stones themselves were not responsible for the Bittersweet Symphony thing.
It was their lawyers who spotted the very real similarity between the obscure orchestral version of Paint it Black and as the lawyers worked for the very powerful Alan klien , they were always going to make the connection.
Once The lawyers for the Shiirells Sued George Harrison for the similarity between She's so Fine and his My Sweet Lord and won.
After that any slight similarity to a song was fair game for the lawyers.
Forget all that junk about Paint it Black and Bitter Sweet Symphony was and still is the best Will see you in Edinburgh Mr. Ashcroft no one writes or sings like you and The Stones should be your support or opening act whatever you want to call it. Richard Ashcroft is simply the best and always will be. !!!
A song for the lovers on Saturday please (plus your set list from Manchester) and ill be a happy man. Might even stay and watch the Stones.
Jayne Peterkin you fancy going to see Richard Ashcroft and then maybe sticking around for the Rolling Stones if we can be arsed?
You can't play "the drugs don't work" because with Keef Richards they clearly have.
Sure, that old spunker looks like a trainee corpse, but with the industrial amounts of gear he's shoved into his system over the last 50 odd years, those drugs have most definitely worked.
Any chance you fancy popping in to our pub and doing a little flashback set? You might have heard of it... Wigan Honeysuckle Inn aka 'suckle?
Got to be worth an ask at least right? #wigan #locallad #backtoyourroots #firstgig #nostalgia #tripdownmemeorylane #supportyourlocal #traditionalboozer
Okay group members and regulars. Get liking this post! 😂
I think the verve were given the all clear to use a sample from the rolling stone orchestral arrangement for the song bitter sweet symphony but the used more of the song than what had been agreed and someone from the stone management realised and demanded more than money than they initially agreed
Isabella Brannan Dillon apparently u can still get tickets at face value on here. Also Richard Ashcroft of the verve is supporting
Ehi Rich, are they gonna pay you with all the credits of Bittersweet Symphony?
I’d go to see Richard but wouldn’t hang around for The Rolling Stones.
Given the court case over your track, in which they sued you and you lost ( which was criminal in my eyes ) with Bittersweet Symphony, it is beyond incomprehensible to me that you are willing to perform as their support act.
I don’t care how much the gig is paying !
How about having some integrity, dignity and back bone ~ Richard I’m shocked 😳😔😳
I got my tickets. Can’t wait. Saw Richard last st first direct LEEDS. Amazing gig was that close was hanging over stage barrier unfortunately in seats for this one.
Huge Stones fan but am far more excited about seeing you...almost peed myself with excitement when I found out support. Can't wait!!
Can’t believe this! How can he support them when they fleeced him for all the royalties from BSS. Noooo Rich, don’t do it!!!!
FFS so much bullshit political bollocks ..... I can’t wait to see RA perform because I love his MUSIC end of 🎶🎵
As a wiganer I feel utterly betrayed by this, I’ve hated the stones for years for what they did to you and now this...
Can’t wait to go,although I only decided to go because Richard Ashcroft is joining the Stones so excited to see him 😍
Congrat I'd love to see this epic gig too!!! But in Argentina we don´t have chance and anybody explain why the concert was cancelled...
Richard is a Man U supporter - I guess playing at Old Trafford footy ground is a dream for him. I’d love to be there to see him but not got enough pennies at the moment ☹️
Buzzing for this. RA isn’t a support act more opening up for them bet it’s a dream for him just like LG said
Thanks for "Weeping Willow" in Boston, awesome show. I guess Liam never got my numerous requests for "Little James"
Once everyone is pissed no one will care about the lifting of tracks and arguments about royalties .....
Mick jagger "and now I'm going to play a song I wrote called BITTERsweet symphony"
Richard Ashcroft ....👊
Mick jagger ....🚑
Amy Harrington I think I would probably stab you out of jealousy when in Queenstown if he was doing the Cardiff gig too
Richard Ashcroft considers the connections between age and creativity.
Richard Ashcroft n Lee Mavers have got the most emotive voices n they're the best songwriters in my lifetime. I've got a bootleg CD of acoustic Verve tracks n one of the tracks on it is Richard Ashcroft singing So Sister - can't get that version out my head - so much emotion pouring out of his veins when he's singing it
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICHARD ASHCROFT.
There just isnt enough of you out there. Love your voice and music.

When are the five of you Mullas going to reform?
You are blessed with divine brotherhood
Brothers always fight, become disillusioned and distant
But they always return back home

Took this at the Liverpool gig last December. Best live show I've ever seen bar Springsteen . Amazing Ashcroft
Went to see Richard Ashcroft in Liverpool, he's one of the best and talented people I've seen live , can't wait to see him again 🙌🙌🙌
This guy never disappoints. If you're thinking about getting a ticket STOP and just do it!
Watched him in The Verve when they played at Haigh Hall in Wigan back in the day, amazing, then seen him again at Liverpool last December, amazing again !! So i know i won't be disapointed next week at Castlefield Bowl...hope the weathers good too !!
