Joe Brown - 60th Anniversary Tour
Premier rock 'n' roll legend Joe Brown has gone from strength to strength as his contemporary achievements continued to gather momentum.
His Very Best Of album achieved Gold Record status and was in the UK charts for eight weeks, staying for four weeks in the Top 20. In the same year his 50th anniversary was celebrated with a wonderful sell-out show at the Royal Albert Hall. His new Ukulele Album caused a similar stir, although branching out internationally, and broke 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. You may have witnessed his critically-acclaimed set at Glastonbury Festival or caught him on tour. If you have you'll already know just what a terrific live talent he is.
In 2017 Joe broke with tradition and toured without a band, just taking US legend Henry Gross along with him. The two tours and Just Joe double CD release they undertook together both broke new ground and were rapturously received by audiences who came in record numbers. This confirmed that as a raconteur Joe is second to none, and as a performer he is just as comfortable solo as with a band.
DUDLEY TOWN HALL
Friday 27 September - 7.30pm
However, Joe has a new band for this tour - more eclectic and with a different line-up to before, including fiddle virtuoso Tom Leary, ace bass player Andy Crowdy and Joe's 27 year stalwart band member, drummer, percussionist and singer Phil Capaldi.
Joe, who now splits his time between the UK and Nashville, combines timeless classics, rockabilly, gospel, country, bluegrass and rock 'n' roll, all interwoven with his effervescent delivery and humorous reminiscences. This sensational show is a musical journey not to be missed.
