AGMP presents


in concert

Stax Records singer-songwriter, the legendary WILLIAM BELL announces a very special exclusive UK concert.

William Bell's debut recording in 1961 for Stax was "You don't miss your water ( until your well runs dry )". One of the label's first major hits, the song has gone on to be covered by Otis Redding, The Byrds, Taj Mahal, The Triffids and Craig David.

In 1967 he co-wrote "Born under a Bad Sign" with Booker T. Jones. The song went on to become a signature song for Blues musician Albert King. It was also covered by Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Etta James, MC5, Richard Hawley and The Simpsons.

1968 saw William Bell have a worldwide hit with "Private Number". A duet with Judy Clay. "I forgot to be your lover" also came out in 1968 and was covered in 1977 by Billy Idol. Dilated Peoples also sampled the track heavily on their anthem "Worst comes to Worst".

In 2014 William Bell was a major part of the "Take me to the River" film which also featured Snoop Dogg, Mavis Staples, Otis Clay, Bobby "Blue" Bland and Terence Howard. He finished 2014 as special guest on the Jools Holland "Hootananny" where he performed "Private Number" with Joss Stone.

William Bell will be releasing a new album "This is where I live" on Stax Records in 2016. Get tickets early for your chance to see this incredible Soul Legend in concert.

Great performance from William Bell supported by a great band. A great mix of his old stuff and some from his new CD. A link has already been posted on SS from last night. Well worth a look
