CUSTOMER NOTICE

For the very first time, musician Jools Holland and his celebrated Rhythm and Blues Orchestra will be joined by music legend Leo Sayer on their renowned Autumn/Winter tour, which is now in its 24th year. Original Squeeze chum Chris Difford returns to the stage with Jools.

Jools Holland and The Rhythm and Blues Orchestra will once again take their much loved annual tour around the UK featuring dazzling long term vocalist Ruby Turner, with her breathtaking gospel, soul, blues vocals and songs written with Jools, as well as Louise Marshall, whose mellifluous voice illuminates all she sings. Also on tour is original Squeeze member and powerhouse Gilson Lavis on drums.

Leo Sayer is an extraordinary global musical success story with his first seven hit singles in the United Kingdom all reaching the Top 10. A prolific songwriter, he is responsible for writing songs such as When I Need You, You Make Me Feel Like Dancing, Thunder In My Heart and many other hits covered by artists all over the world.

Followers of Jools Holland will be familiar with his Squeeze co-founder, sometimes songwriting and touring partner, Chris Difford. As well as his work with Glen Tilbrook in Squeeze, he’s written with Elton John, Paul Carrack, Lisa Stansfield, Bryan Ferry, Helen Shapiro, Elvis Costello and, of course, Jools Holland, who describes him as the John Lennon of London, the John Betjeman of Blackheath and the Alain Delon of Deptford.

Previous special guests who have performed with Jools on his UK tours include the likes of Eddi Reader, Lulu, Joss Stone, Roland Gift, Melanie C and Marc Almond.

Jools is currently recording his next album which will focus on his piano stylings, some duets and collaborations with other top instrumentalists. Watch out for it later In the Autumn.

With a tremendous collection of Jools tunes and his styling of ska boogie woogie and blues, this UK tour promises to be an extraordinary and unforgettable night out that will have audiences weeping and on their feet!
