Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra have announced the dates of their 2022 UK tour, featuring a host of special guests including Celeste, Joss Stone, Vic Reeves, Lulu, Roland Gift and Chris Difford.
The tour will kick off in October with former Fine Young Cannibals frontman Roland Gift, with legendary singer Lulu, who was a huge hit on last year’s tour, and original Squeeze bandmate Chris Difford performing on selected dates.
It will be Academy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Celeste’s first time appearing on a Jools Holland tour, whilst Grammy Award-winning artist Joss Stone last stepped on Jools’ stage in 2014.
Joining him for his show at York Barbican on 1 Dec 2022 is Jools’ podcast partner [Jools & Jim’s Joyride], comedian and all-round performer extraordinaire Vic Reeves.
A Jools Holland tour would not be complete without the spectacular 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 and exuberant sound of the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.
The tour follows the release of Jools Holland’s latest star-studded album, ‘Pianola. Piano & Friends’, which came out in November 2021 and features musical luminaries David Gilmour, Sir Tom Jones, Jamie Cullum, Joe Bonamassa and many more.
