George Benson Announces New Music + UK Tour

As part of a series of dates in England next summer, George Benson is set to play two nights at the London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall.

The now 80-year-old music legend will begin the tour at the Bournemouth International Centre on June 26, prior to playing two nights at the RAH (June 28/29,) Scotland’s Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall (July 1,) and wrap up the five-date tour at Leeds First Direct Arena (July 3.)

The 55-year-old Tony-nominated Broadway star, Melissa Errico, will open for the guitar legend who will perform new material as well as his classics ‘Give Me The Night’, ‘Lady Love Me (One More Time)’, ‘Turn Your Love Around’, ‘Inside Love’, ‘Never Give Up On A Good Thing’, and ‘In Your Eyes.’

Taking to social media, Benson wrote “I can’t wait to return to the UK and share my music with my incredible fans. See you all soon!”

George’s most recent full lengths were ‘Weekend In London’, a live LP of his 2019 performance at the iconic Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, and ‘Walking to New Orleans’ in tribute to Chuck Berry and Fats Domino.

At the time, Benson said “I’m a great appreciator of the music made by both of those guys. Chuck Berry was a great showman and a great musician, and Fats Domino cut nothing but hit after hit after hit.”
