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.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, meriting an inclusion in Rolling Stone’s list of the all-time top 100, Jeff Beck’s distinguished 50-plus year career in music has seen him twice be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame – once as a member of The Yardbirds in 1992, and again in 2009 as a solo artist.
Beck has also won an incredible eight Gammy Awards, and has and has recorded with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Buddy Guy to Tina Turner and Mick Jagger.
He released his most recent studio album, ‘Loud Hailer’, in 2016 to critical acclaim, and that year he also performed a special concert at the Hollywood Bowl marking 50 years in music. This show was released in 2017 as the live album ‘Live at the Hollywood Bowl’, and features Beck performing tracks such as ‘For Your Love’, ‘Beck’s Bolero’, and ‘Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers’
Also announced for the Live At Chelsea Concert Series 2018 are the Kaiser Chiefs on Thursday 14th June, James Blunt on Saturday 16th June, and Andrew Lloyd Webber - A Musical Celebration on Sunday 18th June.
The Live At Chelsea Concert Series returns for its 4th year in 2018, having fast become a unique staple in London’s summer calendar. Previously featured artists include Rufus Wainwright, Ludovico Einaudi, Simply Red, and Belle & Sebastian amongst others, who have all entertained thousands of audience members – as well as the Chelsea Pensioners themselves who live in the immaculate and immersive hospital grounds. There are also various hospitality packages available, ranging from the most comfortable to the most luxurious concert experiences across all shows at the Concert Series.
Every year a portion of the ticket sales from the event is donated towards the care of the Chelsea Pensioners, as well as the maintenance of the Grade I listed site which has provided care and comradeship to ex-military personnel since 1682 when it was founded by King Charles II.
