Joe Brown MBE took to the road in Autumn with a major tour that brings him to the Congres Theatre on January 15.
It’s a long tour but it could so easily never have happened...Back in 1960 Joe was working as lead guitarist with Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent. Joe already had solo hits with People Gotta Talk and Darktown Strutters Ball so Larry Parnes, his then manager, pulled him off the tour to do his own headline shows. A stroke of luck which could have save his life - if Joe’d stuck with the original plan he’d have been in the car crash that tragically took Eddie. Since that very first hit Joe has toured, performed and entertained; a man with musical skill but at home with the quickfire gag and the effortless repartee that’s now part and parcel of the cheeky chappie. A great musical evening is in store from the amazing tour-de-force that is Joe Brown.
