A new All Star Headline Band for 2017
After a recent change to his touring dates we are super excited to announce that Paul “Wix” Wickens will be assembling a very special band to headline Rock against Cancer this year.
Who is he?
The name may not be that familiar, but “Wix” has been Paul McCartney’s keyboard player and musical director for many years and Paul McCartney has kindly shifted some gigs to allow Wix to gather a band for us in May.
He joined Paul McCartney’s band in 1989 and he’s appeared on most studio albums since then and on all of the live Paul McCartney albums. He has performed and recorded with many artists as well: Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Bon Jovi, Bob Dylan, Nik Kershaw, Edie Brickell, Tim Finn, John Kilzer, David Gilmour, and Bill Payne… too many artists to list.
We’ll announce who’s joining Wix as soon as we can…
It will be a fantastic end to the day which will already have seen Alison Moyet, Wilko Johnson, Sweet, Gerry & The Pacemakers and John Coghlan’s Quo appearing on the main stage, with some special guests joining these bands too.
Plus we have upcoming bands Invisible Vegas, Verdisa and Bite the Buffalo performing on the CATK Stage.
