An Evening with Wilson & Wakeman
AN EVENING WITH WILSON & WAKEMAN SATURDAY 4TH JANUARY 2020
What a way to start 2020! We welcome back Wilson & Wakeman for their third appearance at Town Hall Live. Their two previous concerts in 2018 and 2019 have been the highlight of the year for us. Our concert is the first date of their 2020 UK Tour and it is a privileged to have them back.
With Damian Wilson on vocals and acoustic guitar and Adam Wakeman on keyboards, vocals and acoustic guitar, we know it will be an evening of great musicianship, great songs, great atmosphere and jovial banter between themselves and the audience, with stories and memories from their touring careers.
Damian Wilson is most widely known for his contribution to the progressive rock genre, as lead singer in bands such as Threshold, Headspace and Rick Wakeman’s English Rock Ensemble. As a solo artist he has released five solo albums and a retrospective compilation. He has featured in over 70 albums in his career and played the lead role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables. Damian has one of the most versatile voices in rock, with an incredible vocal range.
Adam Wakeman is best known as the keyboard player with Black Sabbath. He has played with them for over 15 years and intended spending much of 2019 doing the same, but a fall for Ozzy Osbourne led to a cancellation of their world tour. He has released nine albums with his father Rick, as well as releasing four solo albums. He co-wrote the 2010 platinum solo album ‘Scream’ with Ozzy and has also toured with the likes of Travis, Annie Lennox and 10cc.
As a duo, Damian and Adam have released three albums, ‘Weir Keeper’s Tale’ in 2016 and ‘The Sun will Dance in its Twilight Hour’ in 2018 and ‘Stripped’ in 2019. The latter came out in time for last year’s tour and features songs that the performed on their 2018 tour and one’s that are bound to form the basis of this tour. As the title suggests it was recorded in the studio with just Damian and Adam playing their instruments and includes many of their own songs and choice covers such as Life on Mars (David Bowie).
