Marc Almond will join Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for their concert at G Live in Guildford, which will also introduce blues guitar prodigy Toby Lee, on November 14 at 7.30pm.

During his years in Soft Cell and his solo career, Marc Almond has sold 30 million records, with hits including Say Hello, Wave Goodbye, Something’s Gotten Hold Of My Heart and Tainted Love.

Marc has been awarded the Ivor Novello Inspiration Award and the Icon Award by Attitude magazine. His collaborators include Gene Pitney, Tony Visconti and Burt Bacharach, as well as Jools, who Marc recorded and toured with in 2018.

Jools said: “I’m delighted to announce a truly remarkable mix of guest artists on this year’s winter tour, from the boogie woogie queen of our orchestra, Ruby Turner, to the iconic songmanship of Marc Almond. I’m also proud to introduce the new dazzling voice and guitar of British blues, the extraordinary 19-year-old Toby Lee.

“Louise Marshall and Sumudu Jayatilaka will be illuminating brilliant songs old and new, all backed by the unique sound of my Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, the big band that will treat us to mega talented soloists and frenzy inducing rhythms. Please come and join us, I look forward to seeing you.”
