2013 UK TOUR

Featuring Special Guest Maria Muldaur
Rock and roll icon, author, restaurateur and photographer - legendary former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman has seen it all and continues to live life to the full. For over thirty years he was part of the best rock n roll band in the world.
His latest musical rebirth, as the driving force behind the fabulous Rhythm Kings, sees him return to his musical roots. This set of virtuoso musicians superbly bring back to life the kind of classic rhythm and blues that first inspired Wyman to pick up the guitar as a teenager. A show imbued with absolute quality.
"The whole idea behind the band was to play music that we love and I think you can hear and feel that on our records. Playing live, doing gigs, means everybody in the band does it for the same reasons as I do; to have a good time and send the crowd home with smiles on their faces" says Wyman.

Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings return to tour the UK this October. Joining Bill on his 26 date UK tour, are the legendary musicians:
