Fantastic Joe Brown to play two nights at the Palace with new band

IT’S the gig of the season – and it’s on for two nights!

TOP draw rock‘n’roll legend Joe Brown plays the Palace Theatre and it promises to be two nights of great music by a British icon.

In 2008 the release of his ‘Very Best Of’ album achieved Gold Record Status and was in the UK charts for eight weeks staying four weeks in the Top 20.

In the same year, his 50th anniversary was celebrated with a sell-out show at the Royal Albert Hall.

His Ukulele album branched out internationally and entered new territory for Joe in the download market where he is now a Spotify legend.

He has continued to break box office records and recently received Mojo magazine’s coveted Outstanding Contribution to Music Award as well as a much deserved MBE.

Joe won over a whole new generation of fans performing on Later With Jools Holland and playing his part closing the show at the Concert For George Harrison.

In 2017 Joe broke with tradition, touring with US legend Henry Gross.

Their two tours, in 2017 and 2018, along with the release of the ‘Just Joe’ double CD broke new ground and they were rapturously received by audiences.

On this tour Joe has a brand new band including fiddle virtuoso Tom Leary, ace bass player Andy Crowdy and Joe’s stalwart band member of the past 27 years, drummer, percussionist and singer, Phil Capaldi.

Expect timeless classics, rockabilly, gospel, country, bluegrass, and rock ‘n’ roll, all interwoven with his effervescent delivery and humorous reminiscences.

You never know, he might even pick up his ukulele.

He plays the Palace on Wednesday and Thursday November 6-7 with curtain up at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £31 from the box office or on 01527 65203 or buy online at www.redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk
