Jools Holland has announced that he is taking his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra back out on the road for a Spring / Summer tour, along with special guest Sandie Shaw.

“I met Jools at 'Later' last year and then again at his studio for his Radio 2 programme. We got on like a house on fire and he made me feel very at home. I had a great time that afternoon with some of the members of his orchestra. It was an absolute pleasure to be invited to come on tour. It has been a while but I am really looking forward to the show.”
