Jools Holland will be bringing the greatest boogie-woogie party around the UK once again with his annual autumn / winter tour. The piano master will be coming to 26 venues, covering 32 dates across the UK & Ireland including a visit to the BIC Windsor Hall on Sunday 14 December 2014. Joining him are British icon Marc Almond and Rumer, singer/songwriter and vocalist extraordinaire.
Marc Almond will be making a special appearance at 25 dates of the tour. Having sold over 30 million records world-wide, Marc has made an unprecedented contribution to British Popular music. In addition to numerous hits during his time in Soft Cell, including ‘Tainted Love’ ‘Say Hello Wave Goodbye’, Marc went on to become an international acclaimed solo artist with chart-topping success around the world.
Rumer will also step on the boogie-woogie stage and will be joining Marc Almond as a special guest on the final 6 dates of the forthcoming tour. Rumer is an Anglo-Pakistani singer/songwriter whose debut album, ‘Seasons Of My Soul’ has sold over a million copies worldwide, seen her nominated for 2 BRIT Awards, and secured the much-coveted Mojo Award for Breakthrough Act. A year later she released 'Boys Don't Cry', which debuted at #3. Its success took Rumer everywhere, from Buckingham Palace to the White House. and brought her together with Jools and the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for the collaboration 'Acc-cent-Tchu-Ate The Postive', which was featured on Jools' 2012 album 'The Golden Age of Song'. Rumer is currently recording her second album of original material.
With the vocal power of Ruby Turner, the Soul tones of Louise Marshall, and the tireless drums of original Squeeze member Gilson Lavis, along with the inimitable musicianship of the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, Jools Holland will perform tracks spanning his entire solo career as well as songs taken from his new album, due to be released through Rhino this Autumn.
