Ticket and album (CD) bundle available through Ticketmaster
Musical virtuoso Jools Holland and his well-renowned Rhythm & Blues Orchestra have announced dates and special guests for their upcoming 2017 Autumn/Winter UK tour. Now in its 22nd year, these legendary shows are not to be missed, with the 33-date tour starting off in Southend on Thursday 26th October. Highlights include two dates at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall on Friday 24th November and Saturday 25th November, along with arena shows at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on Friday 15th December and finishing off the tour at Leeds’ First Direct Arena on 22nd December.
Joining Jools on stage for the 2017 Autumn / Winter UK tour will be Grammy Award winner José Feliciano, one of the most prominent stars in Latin America and revered musicians in the world. Having worked with the likes of John Lennon and Joni Mitchell in the past, his catalogue of international hits include his covers of The Doors’ “Light My Fire” and the Bee Gees’ “And the Sun Will Shine,” along with the much-loved Christmas classic, “Feliz Navidad”. Jools and José will also be recording an album together with the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, which is scheduled to be released later this year. With his mix of Latin and pop styles and his inimitable guitar playing, it’s no question that José will go down a storm on stage.
Quote from Jools Holland on working with José Feliciano:
‘A man whose voice and guitar I’ve idolized all my life. A unique innovator whom I am immensely looking forward to working with’.
Quote from Jose Feliciano to Jools Holland:
My gosh! Jools Holland is an icon who’s played a major role in the life of contemporary music throughout the United Kingdom and way beyond. He continues to do so and for that, I admire him greatly. Don’t ever deny us of your magic, Jools; it’s an honor to be working (playing!) with you.
