Leon Russell – Live at the Royal!

All of us here at The Royal are thrilled to announce Leon Russell will be taking the Royal stage with his band this November! Bringing his world famous talent, and storied musical catalog back to Nelson for an incredible evening of roots, blues, Rock & Roll, this is a very exciting night. Fresh off his collaboration and award winning album & tour with Elton John, this will be an up close & personal show with a genuine legend!…

Leon Russell is the ultimate rock & roll session man.  His long and storied career includes collaborations with a virtual who’s who of music icons spanning from Jerry Lee Lewis, Phil Spector, Joe Cocker, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, John Lennon, J.J. Cale to the Rolling Stones and many more.  A similar eclecticism and scope also surfaced in his solo work, which couched his charmingly gravelly voice in a rustic yet rich swamp pop fusion of country, blues, and gospel.  Leon Russell is a music legend and perhaps the most accomplished and versatile musician in the history of rock ‘n roll.  In his distinguished and unique 50 year career, he has played on, arranged, written and/or produced some of the best records in popular music.  

Tickets are $30 and available April 23rd at Royal Espresso, Eddy Music, and liveattheroyal.com.  Show starts at 8pm.
