King of soul to soothe Stevenage

AN undisputed soul legend will grace Stevenage with a very special performance next week.

Ben E. King, who is probably best known as one of The Drifters principle singers and co-composer of classic track Stand by Me will appear at the Gordon Craig.

With a career spanning five decades the Grammy Hall of Famer will perform a selection of his hits including, ‘Spanish Harlem’, ‘Save The Last Dance For Me’, ‘Don’t Play That Song’, ‘I Who Have Nothing’, and of course the legendary, multi-million selling, genre defining, ‘Stand By Me’.

Ben is delighted to be teaming up with his good friend Gary U.S.Bonds (‘New Orleans’ and ‘Quarter To Three’), for what promises to be a real humdinger of a show.

Tickets are �22 and are available from the box office on 01438 363200 or via The Gordon Craig’s website
