In 1989, knowing he intended to launch the biggest tour of his career thus far, 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’. Current Paul McCartney band member and musical director, Paul “Wix” Wickens, reunited some of this original band to play at Concert at the Kings.
And they were joined by other musicians who have played with musical royalty over the years to give us a spectacular finalé.
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.
Hamish Stuart, 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.
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.
