SINGER-SONGWRITER Passenger has performed a homecoming concert in Brighton.

Passenger, real name Michael Rosenberg, took to the stage at Brighton Dome on Friday.

The Brighton-born musician was due to play at the venue in September last year, but the show was postponed due to Covid-19.

A rearranged show in February was also rescheduled, before the 37-year-old singer was able to perform on Friday.

The musician had support from indie folk singer Gabrielle Aplin.

Passenger shot to fame in 2012 after releasing the song Let Her Go, which topped the charts in 16 countries.

In 2014, the song was nominated for the Brit Award for British Single of the Year, and he received the British Academy's Ivor Novello Award for Most Performed Work.

The chart topper has now notched more than two billion plays on YouTube.

As a young musician, he learned classical guitar before writing songs. After leaving school, spent a number of years performing as a busker in England and Australia.

Passenger also recently helped launch a new city centre venue dedicated to folk.

He was among the performers at the opening night of The Folklore Rooms, above The Quadrant in Brighton.

Folklore is the brainchild of fellow Brightonian Jacko Hooper, who has been putting on popular folk nights under its banner since 2014.

The entrance to the new venue can be found on the corner of Queens Road junction with Air Street.
