|Georgie Fame's Triumphant Return Heads for Sell-Out
Jazz legend Georgie Fame's triumphant return to his home town is fast approaching and organisers are urging Fame fans to get their tickets soon; before it becomes a complete sell out.
Leigh born Georgie will be performing with his sons at the Monaco Ballroom, Hindley (near Wigan) on Tuesday 21st November. Demand for tickets has been so overwhelming that the much-anticipated concert is already heading towards capacity.
Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust's Leisure Venues manager Brian Yates, says, "We are not surprised that Georgie Fame has proved so popular, but we would urge his fans to snap up their tickets soon as we are already nearing 80 per cent full - a week ahead of the concert. It's going to be a great night."
At the time of the gig's announcement, Georgie said, "This is going to be a fantastic night - a really emotional return for me and my boys. We are delighted to be playing together just down the road from where I was born and we promise to put on a great show. I'll be playing all of my most popular tunes plus a few little surprises."
Georgie's performance is part of a UK tour that celebrates a career spanning four decades. His musical career began in the early sixties playing piano in a string of backing groups including 'Billy Fury and the Blue Flames'. Georgie eventually led the Blue Flames himself and became, and still is, one of the most accomplished organ players of his generation.
Tickets for 'Georgie Fame and Sons' are on sale now, priced at £12 (£10 concessions). Doors open at 7.30pm on Tuesday 21st November at the Monaco Ballroom, Hindley. Please contact the booking office on 01942 825677 or visit www.wlct.org for more information.
