AVERAGE WHITE BAND “A Funk Finale – Farewell Tour 2024”

April 7 @ 7:30 pm


Sun. Apr. 7: AVERAGE WHITE BAND “A Funk Finale – Farewell Tour 2024”  -7:30pm-  $65.00

Average White Band, one of the soul and funk bands of all-time will bring their farewell
tour to venues in 2024. The group will perform their biggest hits and fan favourites, such
as US No.1 Pick Up the Pieces, Cut The Cake, Queen of My Soul, Walk On By,
Schoolboy Crush, Let’s Go Round Again and so many more.

Formed in London in 1972, the band – somewhat incongruously given their Scottish
roots – took the influences of their R&B heroes such as Marvin Gaye, James Brown and
Stevie Wonder, and Jazz greats Cannonball Adderley and The Crusaders, then
developed their own authentic sound rapidly adopted by black audiences in the US, UK
and worldwide. The group’s consistently accomplished song-writing helped them to
achieve several Gold & Platinum-selling albums and multiple Grammy nominations with
Atlantic Records.

Having remained a perennial fixture at top venues & festivals across the world for over
50 years, the Average White Band’s farewell tour is the not-to-be-missed last chance for
multiple generations of fans to experience the musical energy and trademark sound of
one of the world’s truly great soul bands.
