Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra feat. Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall and Gilson Lavis have today announced a brand-new special guest joining their 33-date 2021 Autumn/Winter tour. Legendary artist, number one selling popstar and comedian Vic Reeves will join the massive 25th year anniversary tour, singing a selection of songs on stage with his usual comic flare alongside Holland and the 19-piece orchestra across five special nights.
Jools’ podcasting pal and all-round performer extraordinaire will be live on Sunday 28 November from Southampton’s Mayflower then at Bath’s Forum on Thursday 9 December, the Plymouth Pavilions on Friday 10 December, the Brighton Centre on Saturday 11 December and finally on Friday 17 December at Leeds’ First Direct Arena.
Other special guests lined up for the tour include the first-lady of rock n roll Lulu (from 28 October to 14 November, 19 – 20 Nov, 1 – 8 Dec and 18 – 21 Dec). Unfortunately, due to a scheduling clash, Lulu will not be able to appear at Brighton’s Centre on Saturday 11 December as originally planned with Vic Reeves stepping up to take her place instead. Meanwhile, Jools’ original Squeeze bandmate Chris Difford will join from 28 October to 27 November and 19 and 21 December.
Announced earlier this year, Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra were due to be joined by Leo Sayer (from 17 – 28 November and 9 – 17 December) but, due to present travel restrictions, he will sadly no longer be able to take part. Nevertheless, throughout the tour, Jools Holland and The Rhythm & Blues Orchestra will be accompanied by dazzling star 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 drummer Gilson Lavis.
Tickets are on sale now. Tickets are priced from £29.50 (+ booking fee), except the Royal Albert Hall concerts with tickets priced from £19.75 (+ booking fee) upwards. All tickets for the pandemic postponed October to December 2020 tour, will be valid for their respective dates in 2021.
