British singer-songwriter and guitar maverick Chris Rea will be touring the UK in March and April. Rea will be playing selections from his thirty year career as well as songs from his latest studio album, the three CD and two DVD set entitled Santo Spirito.
Santo Spirito includes a new studio album featuring latest single The Chance Of Love plus Dancing My Blues Away, Never Tie Me Down, Rock & Roll Tonight, Electric Guitar and The Last Open Road. It also featureds two bespoke feature films on DVD, written and directed by Rea himself.
The first film is a brutally honest chronicle on bullfighting and features neo-classical & Spanish themed gypsy music whilst the second film follows a man through the city of Florence in his search for the truth. The music to accompany both films is contained on the two accompanying CDs.
The Santo Spirito tour sees Rea reunited with keyboard player and Fender Rhodes Electric pianist Max Middleton best known for his work on Jeff Beck's Blow By Blow and Rea's own On The Beach, The Road To Hell and Dancing With Strangers albums.
