LEVELLERS COLLECTIVE - Lighthouse Poole, Thursday 20 March 2025

Wednesday, May 15, 2024

Lighthouse is delighted to announce the Levellers Collective are to play the Concert Hall on Thursday 20 March 2025.


Tickets go on pre-sale to Lighthouse Friends only at 10am on Thursday 2 May and on general sale from 10am on Friday 3 May.


After two highly acclaimed acoustic tours and albums in recent years, the Levellers Collective have announced a new 17-date tour in Spring 2025 at theatres and venues around the country plus a live album and DVD.


Bassist Jeremy Cunningham says: “We can’t wait for people to see this side of our band again, if they haven’t already. We’ve tried to pick classic venues, appropriate to the nature of the show, where we’re going to be flexing our musical muscles with stuff that’s really hard to play, but really rewarding at the same time. The ying to our electric yang!” 


The Collective live shows, and albums, came about after the Levellers decided to do something a bit different with their extensive back catalogue in 2018. Together with members of fellow Brighton group The Moulettes, they went on to record two albums radically reworking their songs – with producers John Leckie (We The Collective) and Sean Lakeman (Together All The Way).


The new acoustic arrangements of those Levellers songs, old and new, can now also be seen and heard on a new live album and DVD, which was recorded in 2023 at London’s iconic Hackney Empire. The film captures the spirit of the Levellers as never seen before as multiple cameras were positioned onstage for the recording and the result is a truly privileged vantage point.
