featuring GILSON LAVIS with special guest CHRIS DIFFORD and guest vocalists RUBY TURNER, LOUISE MARSHALL & BETH ROWLEY + TEN MILLENIA as support

The king of boogie boogie, swing and R’n’B, Jools Holland is back for another energy-fuelled show with his fantastic Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, raising the roof of the Festival Theatre once again.

Despite selling millions of records throughout his career and hosting the most successful British TV music show ever, he’s always up for touring and the amazing electricity his live shows generate. ‘Later with…Jools Holland’ is now in its 46th series! Jools’ name is synonymous with quality music. His star studded band featuring ex-Squeeze drummer, Gilson Lavis, and regular guest vocalists, Ruby Turner, Beth Rowley and Louise Marshall, are joined for this tour by Jools’ long time Squeeze colleague, Chris Difford.
