Original rock 'n' roll star takes show on the road
10:00am Wednesday 12th September 2012 in What's On
ROCK‘n’ roll legend Joe Brown is at Swansea Grand Theatre on Tuesday, October 16, at 7.30pm.
Joe was one of the original rock ‘n’ roll stars to come out of the UK and one of the first UK session men.
Early career highlights include playing guitar with Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash and other US stars when they came over to Europe. Joe then went on to top the charts with his own records, had The Beatles open shows for him and in a career packed with musical highlights, he also presented several national series of The Joe Brown Show on UK TV and two series of The Rock Show for BBC Radio 2.
His Very Best Of album released in 2008 achieved a Gold Record for a massive 120,000 sales and was in the UK charts for eight weeks, four weeks of which it was in the Top 20.
In September of the same year his 50th anniversary was celebrated with a wonderful sell-out show at the Royal Albert Hall.
Joe has continued to break box office records and recently received MOJO magazine’s coveted Outstanding Contribution to Music Award, as well as a much deserved MBE. Packed with timeless classics, rockabilly, gospel, country, folk, and rock ‘n’ roll, all interwoven with Joe’s effervescent delivery and humorous reminiscences, this sensational show is a musical journey not to be missed.
