This will be followed by an exclusive live set from the Kris Barras Band starting at 9pm. The former Mixed Martial Arts fighter Kris Barras has had an incredible journey that saw his last album ‘Light It Up’ crash into the Top 50 UK Album Charts in 2019 and also play shows with the likes of Black Stone Cherry,Beth Hart, GUN, King King, The Magpie Salute, Therapy?, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, an unprecedented one-in, one out performance at Planet Rockstock and a full European tour with Jonny Lang and Walter Trout. He played to 3 million people on BBC Radio 2 – which caused host Richard Madeley to exclaim, “that’s the reason I love doing this show!” They have also had numerous A-Iist singles at Planet Rock Radio, won the stations prestigious 2019 ‘Best New Band’ award which led to him being asked to guest present two shows on the station. He even found time to join Supersonic Blues Machine as the new singer-guitarist with the legendary Billy F. Gibbons. He also made history as the first band ever to play Ramblin’ Man Fair, three years running on a bigger stage each year; from the Rising Stage to the Main Stage. Now, this year he returns for an exclusive performance.
On Sunday at 8pm you will get the chance to see Gov’t Mule live in concert. Last year the band celebrated their 25th anniversary to which Warren Haynes said; “It’s no easy task keeping a band together for 25 years. You don’t get to do that without having built, nurtured, depended on, tested, damaged, and rebuilt important relationships. In fact, with any band that’s stayed around that long, it’s all about relationships. When we made the decision to document where the band is currently (musically speaking), it immediately occurred to us that this would be, among other things, a celebration of a lot of those relationships — starting with the one between the four of us.”
Then on Sunday at 9pm you will get the chance to see the stunning sold out Royal Albert Hallperformance from Beth Hart. It takes a special talent to command that historic stage. But Hart will hold you spellbound, as the singer whispers and hollers her hopes, fears and deepest secrets in your ear, making this massive venue feel like a nose-to-nose club show. A thousand interviewers have tried to unpick the fascinating enigma that is Beth Hart. But as Live At Royal Albert Hall reminds us, everything you need to know is right there in her songs – and the intimate off-the-cuff stories she spins before each one.
