Friday Night is Music Night (One Week To Go Edition)
"I was devastated to hear the news that my good friend and esteemed monitor engineer John 'Grubby' Callis had been diagnosed with prostate cancer, but relieved that it was discovered relatively early and that he had received fantastic treatment from all concerned. I immediately agreed to support him and perform at 'Concert at the Kings' on Saturday 26th May which Grubby has organised 'with a little help from his friends'. He has pulled out all the stops for what I know will be a fantastic show; after about 30 years in the music business he certainly knows what that demands, and has the expertise to put it together. If all goes well we hope to raise up to £50,000 for cancer charities.
I will be playing some songs with the fabulous Kerry Ellis, and I'm looking forward to meeting some old friends with the SAS band including Midge Ure, Madeleine Belle, Chris Thompson, Tom Robinson, Patti Russo and the fantastic Fabba Girls. Plus a strong possibility of some other great and very well known artists who may surprise you all on the night, but you'll have to be there to see for yourselves!
Secret special guests? I'm not allowed to say any names but next week The Voice isn't on as Eurovision takes over BBC1, and you don't want to watch that so trust me and buy a ticket....
