THE LEGENDARY George Benson will wow his UK fans next summer. The American has announced eight shows for June and July.
The concerts will feature Benson’s masterful guitar playing, and Benson and his band will perform his greatest hits from his impressive back catalogue – which includes such classics as Give Me The Night, Lady Love Me (One More Time), Turn Your Love Around, Inside Love, Never Give Up On A Good Thing and In Your Eyes and more.
Benson is one of America’s great guitarists, a virtuoso who’s been honoured by the National Endowment of the Arts as a Jazz Master.
He’s won 10 Grammys, including record of the year for his triple platinum Breezin.
Benson’s latest album, the critically acclaimed Walking to New Orleans, the jazz guitar legend’s tribute to both piano-pounding hit machine Fats Domino and the original rock guitar hero and poet, Chuck Berry.
This is his 45th album and his first recording since 2013’s Inspiration: A Tribute to Nat King Cole.
