The "Redemption's Son" 15th Anniversary tour
Anyone who has followed the career of Joseph Arthur since he was personally discovered by Peter Gabriel back in 1997 knows he has never been an artist to look back. Over the course of his career to date, he's released 14 albums under his own name, plus 11 official EP's and has been involved with several high-profile side projects including "Fistful Of Mercy" (with Ben Harper & Dhani Harrison). However, when it was brought to Joseph's attention that 2017 marked the 15th anniversary of one of his most beloved albums, "Redemption's Son," he decided he wanted to do something to honor the occasion. "I've never done this album from start to finish live," he says. "But 'Redemption's Son' was always a special record to me and my fans, and this clearly seemed like the right time to do it. As I've been saying recently to my friends, listening to this album again after all of these years has re-inspired me, which honestly was a complete surprise." Said the Times of London when the album was originally released: " Joseph Arthur's brilliant third album proves he was worth the wait. 'Redemption's Son' exhibits the sure sign of a classic album."
