Carole: The Music of Carole King will be visiting Swindon’s Wyvern Theatre later this year.
Carole: The Music of Carole King is described a celebration of the music of one of the world’s greatest songwriters - Carole King.
Following its debut tour in 2019, the show returns to the stage with an even bigger production for 2022.
The Swindon Wyvern date will take place on Friday 30 September at 7.30pm.
A spokesperson said of the event: “With a cast of the UK’s finest singers, dancers and musicians this wonderful homage takes you on an incredible journey through the music that defined an era.
“From that early hotbed of creativity that was New York’s Brill Building in the 1950’s and 1960’s through to the Troubadour Club and the California singer songwriter movement of the early 70’s.”
Carole features not only songs from the Carole King Songbook, but tracks from some of the greatest songwriting partnerships of the 50’s and 60’s.
There will be tracks from Aretha Franklin, The Drifters, The Shirelles, Bobby Vee, The Monkees, The Beatles, Dusty Springfield, Little Eva, The Everly Brothers, James Taylor and Carole King herself.
