Legendary English rock musician Ray Davies will be at The De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, on Sunday, March 2.

The show, entitled Ray Davies - Americana Songs, Stories & Home Movies, will start at 7pm.

Ray is best known as lead singer and songwriter for The Kinks, which he led with his younger brother, Dave.

He has also acted, directed and produced shows for theatre and television.

Since the dissolution of the Kinks in 1996, Ray Davies has embarked on a solo career as a singer-songwriter

The show will feature Ray with his guitarist, Bill Shanley, as an acoustic duo performing songs featured in his new book, Americana, as well as some classic Kinks tracks.

He will also be reading passages from his book, telling stories and showing film footage shot on his 2001 US tour directly after 9-11.

This will be the first time Ray has toured the UK as an acoustic duo since his Storyteller shows more than ten years ago.

Some of the songs will never have been heard live before.

His book Americana follows from the Kinks first tour of the US in 1964 up to his time spent in New Orleans 40 years later.
