Ben Ottewell is back in town – returning to Newton Abbot this Autumn. Ben is best known as a member of Gomez, a British rock act whose debut album, Bring It On, won the Mercury Music Prize in 1998, but in more recent years, his solo shows have received much acclaim.
Gomez never had a designated frontman – Ottewell, Ian Ball, and Tom Gray all sang, and the band’s albums usually included several vocal performances from each – but Ottewell took the helm more than his bandmates, making him one of the group’s most prominent members.
His last visit to Newton Abbot wowed the audience of dedicated fans and new explorers alike with a stunning set of old favourites and new compositions, all presented in an intimate acoustic format. What an amazing night it was and this show will be prove to be equally wonderful, if not better.
Don’t miss a wonderful night.
