Singer/songwriter and piano-player Elio Pace has thrilled audiences for over 25 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.
And he is to appear at The Apex later this month.
For his new “Albums Show” Elio and his band are joined by David Brown – Billy Joel’s guitarist from 1978 to 1991.
They will perform the albums “Storm Front” and “The Stranger” in their entirety, including popular tracks, “We Didn’t Start the Fire”, “Just The Way You Are” and “She’s Always a Woman”.
David has also recorded and toured many music icons including Paul McCartney and Simon and Garfunkel.
Elio has performed with an array of stars including 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.
Elio Pace’s “Albums Show: Billy Joel Songbook” is at The Apex on Monday, October 21, at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from www.theapex.co.uk or 01284 758000.
