JOOLS HOLLAND goes back on tour with his friend "the piano"

After a long break and many TV appearances with Rod Stewart, Jools Holland is going back on a short European tour in March 2025. The piano master shows once again that he doesn't need an orchestra to entertain people with his piano alone. He will be supported only by the singers Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall and Sumudu Jayatilaka. Klaxon's drummer George Latham sits on the drums.

The celebrated musician, bandleader and TV host Jools Holland pays homage to all kinds of musical styles such as boogie-woogie, stride piano (a solo piano style from the early days of jazz), blues, swing and R&B.

If anyone knows his stuff, it's him: With his BBC show Later... with Jools Holland, TV star, pianist and bandleader JOOLS HOLLAND has the most iconic music show in Europe on the go. From Amy Winehouse, Ed Sheeran and Adele to Bono, Pearl Jam and BB King, he has had them all on his show.

He is definitely considered the best in his field and was awarded the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II in June 2003 for his outstanding services to the British music industry.

In September 2011, JOOLS HOLLAND released a compilation especially for the German-speaking market which, in the best Later...with Jools Holland tradition, presented a whole host of top acts, including Eric Clapton, Sting, David Gilmour, Nick Cave, Tom Jones and many other international greats. But Jools Holland also came up with a sensational surprise, as the album included artists from Germany for the first time: Roger Cicero, Ina Müller, The Baseballs, Axel & Torsten Zwingenberger were among them.

Herbert Grönemeyer was represented with two songs, including a wonderful cover version of Randy Newman's Marie.
His current album "Swing Fever" (Warner Music), which he recorded with none other than Sir Rod Stewart, was in the top 10 of the album charts in almost all European countries. In Great Britain it even reached number 1 for the first time in his career (press release).
