ROCK ‘N’ roll legend Joe Brown is set to return to the Swan Theatre in Worcester at the end of September for another evening of sensational entertainment.
Recently described by BBC Radio 2 as ‘The Epitome of Cool’, Joe Brown is indeed one of the true greats of rock ‘n’ roll, and his extraordinary career only keeps going from strength to strength as his contemporary achievements continue to gather momentum.
His Very Best Of album, which was released in 2008 in celebration of his 50th year as a professional musician, achieved a Gold Record for a massive 125,000 sales and was in the UK charts for eight weeks, spending four weeks in the Top 20.
One of the original rock ‘n’ roll stars to come out of the UK, and one of the very first UK session men, Joe Brown’s early career highlights included playing guitar with Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash and other US stars when they came over to Europe. He first rose to fame in the 1960s with a string of top ten hits including A Picture Of You, It Only Took A Minute and That’s What Love Will Do.
Joe, together with his five piece band, including his son and record producer Pete Brown, will be on stage all evening in a show packed with timeless classics, rockabilly, gospel, country, folk and rock ‘n’ roll, all interwoven with Joe’s effervescent delivery and humorous reminiscences.
You may have seen Joe performing on Later With Jools Holland or at the cinema playing his part closing the show at the Royal Albert Hall in The Concert for George Harrison; or you might have been there to witness him playing his critically acclaimed set at Glastonbury Festival; but if not, now is your chance to see one of the all-time great talents – a compelling and unique performer with a rare and singular track record – live at the Swan Theatre.
Joe Brown appears at The Swan Theatre on Tuesday, September 30 at 8pm. Tickets costs £25 and are available from the box office on 01905 611427.
