Paul Carrack, the man who replaced Jools Holland on keyboards in the early 1980’s band Squeeze, will play a solo concert at the Grand Pier on Friday 13th July.
Paul first played in the band Ace, where he wrote and was the vocalist on ‘How Long’, their debut single which was a hit in the UK and the USA in 1975.
After leaving Squeeze he teamed up with Mike Rutherford of Genesis to form Mike + The Mechanics. In 1989 they had a UK number two and USA number one hit with ‘The Living Years’.
Paul was also a member of Roxy Music and has played as a session musician with other bands including The Smiths and The Pretenders.
His solo career has been going strong since 1987, with his hit album ‘One Good Reason’ and the single ‘Don’t Shed a Tear’.
Grand Pier owner Kerry Michael said he continued to be delighted by the variety of artists who are lining up to play at the venue.
“The Grand Pier is now well established as a major venue in the South West. We are probably the busiest venue in Weston now and we are consistently attracting world-class acts to the town”.
Tickets are now on sale, either from the Grand Pier shop on the first floor, or online here. Tickets, which are all seated, are £27.50, with a limited number of VIP tickets at £35.00. Online ticket prices may involve a booking fee.
