In Pictures: Texas at Forest Live 2022

Last Sunday, Texas closed this summer's Forest Live line-up at Westonbirt Arboretum.

Formed in Glasgow by singer Sharleen Spiteri and bassist Johnny McElhone, their debut single, 'I Don't Want A Lover', brought Texas to the world's attention with a global hit in 1989 beginning the Scottish band's illustrious career.

At Westonbirt on June 12, the band performed a raft of hits such as 'Say What You Want', 'Halo', 'Black Eyed Boy', 'Summer Son', 'In Demand' and 'Inner Smile'.

Back when the date was originally announced, Sharleen Spiteri said: "We last played a Forest Live show in 2011 so for us it's a welcome return to be performing our hits in such a beautiful setting."

Texas completed this summer's Forest Live line-up, replacing Jess Glynne whose planned concert was cancelled.

Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series that introduces forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country.

Over 1.9 million people have attended a Forest Live gig in the last 20 years, enjoying great music and supporting the nation's forests when buying a ticket.

Forestry England said: "Going to a concert helps us to create beautiful places for people to enjoy, run important conservation projects and keep growing trees."
