Paul Carrack – The 20/20 Tour
Sunday 26 January, 7.30pm
Paul Carrack and his awesome 6-piece band take to the road again for their 30 date 20/20tour, coming to Sage Gateshead Sunday 26 January.
Nicknamed ‘the man with the golden voice’ in a BBC documentary about his phenomenal 50-year career, Paul, whose vocals have graced million selling songs including How Long by Ace, Tempted by Squeeze and the GRAMMY-nominated Living Years by Mike and the Mechanics, is now firmly established as one of the hardest-working independent musicians on the scene.
Having returned from touring Japan and the USA as a featured instrumentalist with the Eric Clapton Band, Paul is eager to get back to his own set, highlighting not only the hits and collaborations with the bands such as The Eagles, but also songs from his 17 solo albums.
