One of a very select number of UK tour dates, Georgie Fame appears in the intimate setting of Marine Theatre.

With a blend of jazz and R&B, Georgie Fame has consistently worked in the highest musical circles and has become a true icon of the British music scene.

So far there have been more than twenty albums and fourteen hit singles, including three Top Ten hits: Yeh Yeh, Get Away, and The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde.  There’s a long list of collaborations with some of music’s most famous names, including Muddy Waters, Gene Vincent, Bill Wyman, Eric Clapton and Van Morrison, amongst many others.

In this special concert, the audience can expect to hear Georgie Fame’s hits, alongside new interpretations of music that has influenced him. The evening will be interspersed with stories and anecdotes from his career.

 

“There’s no point in doing it when Georgie Fame could do it ten times better” – Bill Wyman

“So full of life, energy and bright ideas that it doesn’t seem possible” – The Guardian
