Singer/songwriter and piano-player Elio Pace has thrilled audiences for over 25 five years with his soulful voice and amazing piano playing, and his ‘Billy Joel Songbook’ shows have delighted thousands of fans.
In fact, in 2013, Elio was invited to ‘fill Billy Joel’s shoes’ starring in two reunion concerts in New York and Philadelphia with Joel’s original 1971-72 touring band, recreating the historic Sigma Sounds live recordings.
For his new ‘Albums Show’ Elio and his band are joined by a very special guest from the USA – Billy Joel’s guitarist from 1978 to 1991- David Brown. David played lead guitar on the albums ‘Glass Houses’ and ‘An Innocent Man’, both of which will be performed in their entirety at The Apex on May 8.
David has also recorded and toured many music icons including Paul McCartney and Simon and Garfunkel. Elio has performed with an array of stars: Brian May, Huey Lewis, Katie Melua, Glen Campbell, Gilbert O’Sullivan and Martha Reeves to name but a few. He appeared live-on-air to millions as the featured artist on BBC Radio 2’s ‘Weekend Wogan’ throughout 2010.
Albums Show: Elio Pace’s Billy Joel Songbook is at The Apex, in Bury St Edmunds, on Tuesday, May 8, at 7.30pm. Tickets are £27.50, ring the box office on 01284 758000 or see www.theapex.co.uk for details.
