“The music of Damien Rice demands close attention: he’s a nuanced performer who isn’t afraid to lay his feelings bare.” – The New York Times
We are very happy to announce a second show for Damien Rice in Shanghai, at 3pm on Sunday May 22. Damien’s first show, that same evening, received an enormous response and was sold out within three hours. We’ve worked extra hard to make this additional gig possible!
This second show is at the same venue (The SSO Concert Hall at 1380 Middle Fuxing Road – 复兴中路1380号). Tickets will be available from 9am, Saturday April 23rd on Gewara and Ticket 2010. All the details below.
For everyone who missed out, this is a second chance to catch one of our generation’s most poignant songwriters. Prepare to be transported by his brittle, raw and honest music in the Symphony Hall’s majestic setting.
Tickets will be available from 9am April 23rd (Saturday) on:

The Contemporale series began in the autumn of 2014 as a collaboration between the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra and Split Works and hosts exciting contemporary musical acts in a classical music environment, at the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra’s new home in downtown Shanghai.
The 2014-15 season saw piano, guitar and strings from the Ukraine (Lubomyr Melnyk), Canada (Moonface) and the US (Bill Callahan). With fully sold out Chamber Halls across the season, Contemporale has expanded its programme for the 2015-16 season, taking in twice the number of artists and including performances in the 1,200 seat Concert Hall.
