Prudential BluesFest celebrates blues, soul and jazz music with performances from an array of world-renowned artists. The festival includes shows not only in the main auditorium but throughout The O2, including gigs at the Brooklyn Bowl and Indigo at The O2.
The exciting 2015 line-up includes a co-headline performance from Tom Jones and Van Morrison, billed as Bring It On Home – an evening with Tom Jones and Van Morrison, on Sunday 8 November. The performance will see the iconic singers perform a full solo set, accompanied by their respective bands, and it is expected that the legends will treat fans to a duet.
The pair’s concert at The O2 follows their 2013 collaboration with Jeff Beck where they performed Bring It On Home To Me by Sam Cook. It is sure to be an evening to remember when the two old friends perform their greatest hits from their back catalogues.
Along with Tom Jones and Van Morrison, Dave Matthews Band will headline The O2 arena on Saturday 7 November. The Grammy award-winning group, who have released eight studio albums, are known for their incredible live performances and this year’s BluesFest gig looks to be no different.
Joining the 2015 headliners are Matt Schofield, the celebrated blues guitarist; Tedeschi Trucks Band, the 11-piece group; and Jo Harman, the talented British blues soul singer.
