Host of the smash-hit Have A Word podcast, star of Live At The Apollo and Roast Battle, and Dave’s 'Best Joke of the Fringe' winner Adam Rowe brings us his latest stand-up comedy tour, Imperious.
Over the past few years the world has become extremely polarised and everybody thinks they’re right on every single subject, including Adam. Although he also accepts that he’s probably wrong, because he hasn’t really looked into it and let’s be honest; neither have you. That doesn’t matter though, because he’s a comedian so as long as we all come away from this show having had a laugh, let’s call it a win.
Rowe has opened on tour for huge American stars Bill Burr, Theo Von, and Andrew Schulz. He’s since gone on to develop a reputation as one of the most exciting comics on the planet, with his brutally honest, opinionated stand-up and his phenomenal ad-libbing ability making each of his performances unique, gloriously unpredictable and, most importantly, hilarious.
Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto
Thursday 30 June 2022
The horns throw down a challenge, the piano strides out, and Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto is in business. Some pieces are popular for a reason, and when the award winning Mao Fujita makes his Liverpool debut tonight, you won’t need reminding why!
Gemma New conducts a concert that opens in heaven with Aaron Jay Kernis, and ends with Robert Schumann relaxing at a wine festival. And in between, a real surprise: a quirky little gem by Katherine Balch. Apparently she got the idea from a pop lyric and a cuckoo clock!

A jealous sultan, his beautiful, intelligent wife, and a thousand and one nights of fantasy. Sounds like a lot to put into music, but in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, a violin becomes the storyteller as the orchestra paints a world of thieves and genies, shattering storms and birds the size of houses. Hear for yourself, as Vasily Petrenko conducts one of the all-time Russian classics, and welcomes Sergei Dogadin – winner of the 2019 Tchaikovsky Competition – in Shostakovich’s gripping First Violin Concerto.
