Soul Summit: Average White Band + Kokomo

Two of the finest soul pioneers to emerge this side of the Atlantic, Average White Band and Kokomo reignite the fire of their former years as touring partners for a show-stopping double bill.

As well as their unmissable live shows, countless hits and watertight musicianship,  the recognisable grooves of Average White Band continue to reach new audiences as their music is frequently sampled by DJs around the world. 1970s trendsetters Kokomo reformed in 2014 after a hiatus of many years, during which time various members collaborated with artists such as Bryan Ferry, King Crimson, BB King and the Rolling Stones, alongside flourishing solo careers.

Now, as they join forces again, audiences old and new can appreciate how each band has cultivated a legacy spanning over four decades that still burns brightly to this day.

Before the show begins, DJs from the unstoppable Soultrain will be spinning some of their favourite tracks in the bar.

This is a part-standing show.
