JEFF BECK + IMELDA MAY – 15 JUNE 2018
Jeff Beck has been announced to perform at the Live At Chelsea Concert Series 2018, completing the line-up of shows in the idyllic grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in West London. The Grammy-winning guitarist will headline the venue on Friday 15th June 2018, as music fans across the capital will for the 4th year turn the grounds into one of the most unique live concert settings.
Support for Jeff Beck’s headline show on Friday 15th June will come from Irish singer songwriter, Imelda May. May released the T Bone Burnett produced album ‘Life Love Fresh Blood’ last year to critical acclaim, the perfect prelude to Beck’s headline performance.
