The Headline Band for 2017
After a recent change to his touring dates we are super excited to announce that Paul “Wix” Wickens, Paul McCartney’s keyboard player and musical director for many years, has assembled a very special band to headline Rock against Cancer this year.
Knowing full well he intended to launch the biggest tour of his career thus far, in 1989, Paul McCartney put together a regular band to take out on the road, and who would appear in various forms on his comeback album, ‘Flowers in the Dirt’.
Now after the recent special 2017 re-release of that album, Paul “Wix” Wickens has reunited with some of the original band to play at Concert at the Kings 2017.
Musical Director and Keyboard player for Paul McCartney. He has also performed and recorded with Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Bon Jovi, Bob Dylan, Nik Kershaw, Edie Brickell, Tim Finn and David Gilmour.
Gary Brooker MBE – founder, lead singer, pianist & composer of Procol Harum. Gary has had solo albums and forays with Eric Clapton, Bill Wyman’s Rythmn Kings and Ringo Starr to name but a few.
Robbie McIntosh has legendary status among his fellow musicians. His career to date includes spells as guitarist with Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Tom Jones, John Mayer, and Norah Jones.
A member of Average White Band from 1972 to 1982, Hamish went on to work with Paul McCartney, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan and David Sanborn, Smokey Robinson, George Benson and Diana Ross.
AND ON THE CATK STAGE
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.
Take a look at what this hidden gem is all about…
“The biggest small festival in the world!”
