The ALBUMS SHOW is BACK!
TWO more classic Billy Joel albums performed in their entirety… in ONE sensational show.
There’s just no stopping the incredible success of the critically acclaimed Billy Joel Songbook led by the phenomenal Elio Pace and his amazing band. Having sold out theatres across the UK and Europe, and due to the huge success of the first ‘Albums Show’ tour in May 2018, they return in Autumn 2019, this time performing two more Billy Joel classic albums in their entirety, Storm Front and The Stranger.
And if that wasn’t thrilling enough for Billy Joel fans, Elio and his band are delighted to be bringing back their very special guest, direct from the USA… legendary lead guitarist, David Brown. David played lead guitar in Billy Joel’s band from 1978 until 1991 and also went on to record and tour with many music icons including Paul McCartney and Simon and Garfunkel.
Elio Pace’s Billy Joel Songbook ‘Albums Show’ featuring David Brown really is a night of world-class musicianship and ingenious songwriting you simply cannot miss
