Following his sold-out concerts around the world in 2009/10, he performed a series of six sold out shows at London's Royal Albert Hall. Both the concerts and album received positive critical reviews and commercial success. A DVD was released of Bold as Brass, as well as a specially pressed limited edition bonus package.
The six concerts accompanying the release of Bold as Brass centred on Richard's 70th birthday, on 14 October 2010. To celebrate this, Richard was accompanied by a swing band to perform tracks from his album of swing songs, as well as distinguished classics from his 52-year career. Performed at the Royal Albert Hall, London, where he holds the record for playing the most sold out shows in one run (32), the concerts took over £2m at the box office.
