Eddi Reader 40 Years Live Tour
Eddi Reader is perhaps Scotland’s greatest living female voice. In 2020, she celebrates her 40th year on stage with a 40 Years Live concert tour.

From her earliest years playing the folk clubs of western Scotland and learning how to street sing across Europe (like her hero Edith Piaf ) Eddi’s path soon led her to a professional career in music as a backing singer for Eurythmics and Gang of Four. Her band Fairground Attraction had huge international success and number one hits with Perfect and debut album First of a Million Kisses which stormed the charts in the late 1980s.

Throughout her successful solo career, Eddi has released consistently great works, including highly acclaimed albums such as The Songs of Robert Burns and last years Cavalier. She has won Brit Awards, been awarded four honorary degrees, an MBE, sung to millions on some of the world’s greatest concert and festival stages and collaborated with a host of stars across a myriad of genres including folk, jazz, pop, world, punk and even classical work with various orchestras.

In 2019 Eddi was invited to be a special guest with Jools Holland’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for an extensive tour, she released her Starlight EP, played sold out headline shows and recorded a programme for BBC Radio’s Classic Scottish Album series about her Robert Burns recordings and appeared on BBC Television’s Songs of Praise and as part of Billy Connolly’s Made In Scotland series.

2020s 40 Years Live concerts promise to be something special, as with any Eddi Reader concert, the magic is being made in the moment, no two concerts ever the same.

Dionne Warwick

Legendary six time Grammy Award winning recording artist Dionne Warwick has announced her new UK and European concert dates, One Last Time will form part of her Farewell Tour in September and October 2020.

Warwick says, "After almost six decades I’ve decided it’s time to put away from touring trunk and focus on recording, one off concerts and special events. I still love performing live, but the rigours of travelling every day so far from home, sleeping in a different hotels each night, one concert after the other, is becoming hard. So, I’ve decided to stop touring on that level in Europe…. But I’m not retiring!!"

The first leg of this headline tour, in some of the UK’s most beautiful theatres, will encompass Warwick’s monumental career, with songs from her hugely successful recording catalogue including a selection of classic Warwick, Burt Bacharach and Hal David songs such as I Say A Little Prayer, Do You Know The Way To San Jose, Anyone Who Had A Heart and Walk On By.

Warwick ranks among the 40 biggest hit makers of the entire rock era (1955-1999), based on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles Charts. She is one of the most charted female vocalists of all time, with 56 of her singles making the Billboard Hot 100 between 1962 and 1998, and 80 singles making all Billboard charts combined.

Blue Öyster Cult

For over four decades, Blue Oyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, New York based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Oyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success.

The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and Blue Oyster Cult was listed in VH1's countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.

Upon the release of Blue Oyster Cult's self‐titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy-yet-heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song.

Blue Oyster Cult's canon includes three stone cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: The truly haunting (Don't Fear) The Reaper from 1976's Agents of Fortune, the pummeling Godzilla from 1977's Spectres and the hypnotically melodic Burnin' for You from1981's Fire of Unknown Origin.

Other notable Blue Oyster Cult's songs include Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll, Then Came the Last Days of May, I Love the Night, In Thee, Veteran of the Psychic Wars, Dominance and Submission, Astronomy, Black Blade and Shooting Shark.

The intense creative vision of Blue Oyster Cult's original core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist Donald Buck Dharma Roeser, and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom are complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and the longtime rhythm section of bass guitarist Danny Miranda, and drummer Jules Radino.

"We realized we're a classic rock band. That's what we are, that's what we do best, that's what we know." The band members are proud of Blue Oyster Cult classic sound, and pleased the band is creating vibrant work for disenfranchised music lovers who don't like the homogenized, prefabricated pop or sound alike, formulaic rap metal, which monopolizes the radio airwaves and bestseller charts.

Blue Oyster Cult has always maintained a relentless touring schedule that brings new songs and classics to original fans and, as Bloom puts it, "Teenagers with green hair."

Nick Masons Saucerful of Secrets
Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets are - Nick Mason, Gary Kemp, Guy Pratt, Lee Harris and Dom Beken.

Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets played their first gigs at four intimate and acclaimed live shows at London’s Dingwalls (20 May 2018) and The Half Moon in Putney (21, 23 and 24 May 2018), these were Nick Mason’s first live musical outings since Pink Floyd's Division Bell Tour in 1994, and the show at Dingwalls was his first since Pink Floyd played at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London.

The band went on to sell-out theatres around the world including three nights at London’s Roundhouse, where Pink Floyd played some of their most revered early shows in the 1960’s. The 2020 tour will see the band further expand their repertoire and will play songs from Pink Floyd's early catalogue up to the 1972 album Obscured by Clouds.

On 12 September, Nick Mason was named Prog Magazine’s Prog God at the prestigious Progressive Music Awards at the Shakespeares Globe Theatre, previous recipients include Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, Ian Anderson, Carl Palmer and Steve Howe.

"This was the most extraordinary and joyous show, a reminder of what a peculiar and brilliant band Pink Floyd were... If you have the slightest interest in Pink Floyd, do not miss this group… You won’t even need acid to blow your mind." ***** Michael Hann, Financial Times

"The sound was immense, electrifying, galvanising, mesmerising and still deeply strange, bending the formats of primal rock into all kind of weird and wonderful shapes.... it was a set of such startling intensity it seemed to mock the very notion of nostalgia. It was enough to make you wonder whether rock has progressed very far at all since the Sixties." **** Neil McCormick, The Daily Telegraph

"This show with him (Nick Mason) at its centre, is a fantastic voyage of rediscovery." **** David Bennun, Metro

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott
are heading out on tour, to coincide with the release of their new album Manchester Calling, in spring 2020.

Their fourth studio album, boasts all the hallmarks of Heaton’s beautifully bittersweet song writing, effortlessly catchy melodies allied with an everyman’s biting exasperation at the modern world alongside some truly heartfelt love songs.

Paul Heaton, one of the UK’s most successful songwriters with some 15 million album sales under his belt, first came to public attention in the early 80s as front man of Hull-based indie poppers The Housemartins (the same group that spawned Norman Fatboy Slim Cook), best known for their third single Happy Hour and their number one acapella Isley Bros cover Caravan Of Love.

In 1988 Heaton formed The Beautiful South, who released 10 hugely successful albums, Jacqui Abbott was lead vocalist in The Beautiful South from 1994 to 2000 and she sang many of their signature hits including Rotterdam, Perfect 10, Don’t Marry Her and Dream A Little Dream. The Beautiful South called it a day in 2007 citing musical similarities. Since then, the pair have released a number of albums together.

10cc

The legendary 10cc have announced a mammoth 25 date UK tour for Autumn 2020, performing the hits which have singled them out as one of the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music.

Marking the 45th anniversary of the release of their mega hit I’m Not In Love, which landed the band a top five single in 10 countries and spawned a no one album in the US, the 2020 tour starts at the Carlisle Sands Centre in October.

Led by co-founder Graham Gouldman, the art pop band are heralded in equal measure for their ability to craft ingenious songs that also resonated commercially, with eleven top 10 hits, and over 15 million albums sold in the UK alone. The group also have three no one singles to their name – Rubber Bullets, Dreadlock Holiday and I’m Not In Love.

The line up features Gouldman (bass, guitar, vocals), Rick Fenn (lead guitar, bass, vocals), Paul Burgess (drums, percussion) – both of whom have been with the band since the mid 70s - Keith Hayman (keyboards, guitars, bass, vocals) and Paul Canning (vocals, percussion, guitar, keyboards).

Since the most recent live version of the band has been established, 10cc have toured worldwide, including Australia, Japan, Iceland, New Zealand, across the UK and Europe. They’ve performed at the British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park, and sold out London’s 5200 seat Royal Albert Hall in advance last year.

It has been an eventful few years for Graham Gouldman. Not only is 10cc enjoying increasing success around the world, but recognition of his solo achievements has grown too.

Being invited by Ringo Starr to join his All Starr Band for tours of Europe in June 2018 and the USA that September, during which the band played three 10cc songs, elevated his profile yet further.

2020 is set to be another sell out year as the band take their inspirational live show back on the road, performing their timeless hits and more, and always with a surprise or two.

For over 30 years, Texas have proved themselves to be one of Scotland’s best ever bands and nothing short of a national treasure south of the border. A new album, the follow up to their acclaimed 2017 release Jump On Board will be unveiled in August on BMG.

Last December Texas played a sold out Glasgow show at SWG3, their fastest selling show ever.

After the overwhelming success of that show, Texas have decided to do the same on their forthcoming tour, coupled with a set list compiled of songs both old and new.

Formed in 1986 by the undeniably brilliant Sharleen Spiteri and her partner in crime, Johnny McElhone, they have made consistently great music throughout their stellar career having sold over 40 million records, had 13 top ten UK singles, three number one UK albums and eight top 10 UK albums including their latest Jump On Board.

Status Quo

AEG Presents are delighted to announce that Britain’s best-loved rockers Status Quo are following on from their triumphant Hyde Park‘Radio 2 Live show and coming back to reclaim their position on the live circuit – with the Backbone UK Winter Tour in 2020. Quo will be performing hits from across their five decade career, and of course the latest hit album Backbone which has just charted at no.6 in the UK. It is the highest charting album of new material for 37 years since 1+9+8+2 in 1982. Hitting seven venues across the country in November and December 2020, this tour sees the band’s return to UK stages, as part of a major European tour, after largely taking a break in 2019.

If the Backbone tour represents the return of the quintessential live rock act, then the Backbone album itself marks something of a new dawn. These live dates will feature a brand new set including all the classics but also songs from the first album not to feature the late great Rick Parfitt; some being played live for the first time ever, Backbone demonstrates a refocusing and a sharpening of the creative edge. Francis Rossi said, "The pressure was on: this set of new songs had to be strong enough to take their place in that amazing catalogue of Quo classics. With songs like Liberty Lane and Backbone already road tested at massive shows in Hyde Park and on the Lynryd Skynryd tour, there’s no doubt that the new material stands up! We can’t wait to get back on the road in the UK."

The album was described by Classic Rock as a strong, upbeat Quo record, which adds to their legacy and by Powerplay as an essential addition to any right-thinking Quo fan’s collection. Francis Rossi said, "We’ve been away from the UK live circuit for a little while and we’ve missed it, and we’ve missed the fans. The Backbone album got such a great reception, people really understand what we are trying to do and the fans have really supported it. We can’t wait to get out there in 2020 on a proper Status Quo tour and play all the classics, plus some of these new songs for the first time."

Rick Wakeman

An evening of music and laughter – and grumpiness!

Featuring songs from YES, David Bowie, The Beatles and music with a festive twist.

Rick’s back – and even grumpier than last year! Following 2019’s sell-out Christmas tour, keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman will embark on another festive foray around the UK, visiting some of the cities he didn’t get to the first time around. The Even Grumpier Old Christmas Show will kick off in November 2020.

Both as a member of YES and as a solo artist, Rick Wakeman is known across the world for his virtuosity, creative flair and wicked sense of humour. A true rock legend, with over 50 million albums sold in five decades, his music continues to reach new generations of fans. Fans of his solo concerts will already know that they combine spellbinding piano music with side-splitting stories and revealing insights into his lengthy and varied career. New fans should expect an evening of superb musicianship, featuring tracks from last year’s release Christmas Portraits – Rick’s instrumental arrangements of traditional festive tunes – as well as music from YES, his own solo epics and early Bowie hits, plus fantastic arrangements of Beatles’ tunes, and much, much more, interspersed with knockabout (and sometimes bawdy!) humour.

The Even Grumpier Old Christmas Show is guaranteed to round off what has been a stressful year for everyone with an entertaining evening of glorious piano music and hilarious fun. "It’s so difficult to imagine how live music is going to be in the future, but I have to believe that there will be sensible and workable answers to enable us all to enjoy concerts, the theatre and other social events," says Rick. "So, with my positive hat on, I’m looking forward to a new Even Grumpier Christmas Show to hopefully play my part in putting smiles back on all our faces and prepare us for a healthier and continually caring 2021."

Ian Anderson
and Jethro Tull band are one of the world's most successful and enduring progressive rock bands. At the beginning of February 1968 Jethro Tull first appeared under that name at the famous Marquee Club in Wardour Street, London. Quickly building a following there and at the many other small blues clubs and pub venues up and down England, the band came to broader media and public recognition at the Sunbury Jazz and Blues Festival in the summer of 1968 where they were the surprise hit of the occasion.

Tull recorded with the original lineup of Anderson, Cornick, Bunker and Abrahams and released their first album This Was on the Island label later that year. After the departure of Mick Abrahams and his replacement by Martin Barre, another thirty or so musicians would form the ranks over the decades, some staying for a few months; some for the longer haul.

Although Ian Anderson uses his own real name these days in conjunction with the Tull performances and repertoire, the Jethro Tull brand has endured to this day and as writer, producer, flautist, vocalist and occasional guitarist, Anderson performs with the band typically 80 – 100 shows each year in many countries of the world.

This tour will draw heavily on material from the more "prog" albums, some of it focusing on the earlier formative period through to the “heavy hitters” of the Tull catalogue from the albums Stand Up, Benefit, Aqualung, Thick As A Brick, Passion Play and even a touch of TAAB2 from 2012.

Ian Anderson will be accompanied by Tull band musicians David Goodier (bass), John O'Hara (keyboards), Joe Parrish (guitar) and Scott Hammond (drums). The show will be enhanced by full scale video projection.
