Joe Brown, rock 'n' roll favourite, to perform at the New Theatre in Peterborough




Guitar pioneer and one of the original 'kingpins' of British rock 'n' roll, Joe Brown, will be at the New Theatre in Peterborough on January 17, at 7.30pm.

It's part of his 60th anniversary tour, which also ties in with the release of his box set.

Brown's first group was a skiffle group, until he heard Little Richard - and then discovered that rock 'n' roll was the only way!

Joe Brown is celebrating 60 years in show business.

The Beatles supported him and George Harrison became a life-long friend.

Joe's first big hit is said to have saved his life - it took him off on a solo tour and he would otherwise have been in the car crash that killed Eddie Cochran.

Several big hits later he was established, and Joe Brown and The Bruvvers became a 1960s household name.

Six decades on, he is still making music pulling in the crowds, and doing what he does best - performing live.

Joining him on his tour is a brand new line-up plus long-time stalwart Phil Capaldi.
