The King is coming back ....

Albert Lee - one of the finest guitarists in the world - and Hogan's Heroes are to make a return visit to the North East this April.
I have watched many top guitarists over the years, but Albert is the only guy I know who should come with a health warning. He can reduce a room full of guitar players almost to tears with one riff. It is worth the entrance money just to be able to look at some of the audience's expressions during Country Boy or Tiger Rag. They range from incredulity to outright misery - hee hee.
But this show is not only about speed twiddling. Each member of this band is a master of his craft - doing a job they obviously love - and the overall effect is awesome.
Don't miss it - I certainly won't.
