Prom 65: Stax Records - 50 Years Of Soul: Booker T Jones, Sam Moore, Tom Jones, Beverley Knight, James Morrison, Ruby Turner, William Bell, Eddie Floyd, Steve Cropper, Jools Holland & His Rhythm And Blues Orchestra

Founded in 1959, Memphis-based Stax Records was synonymous with Southern Soul – a distinctive blend of funk, gospel and R & B that brought listeners across America together at a time of racial conflict and political unrest.

In this Late Night Prom Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra pay tribute to the pioneering label and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Stax/Volt Revue’s first tour of the UK, in a concert featuring some of the label’s greatest surviving artists.

Stax legends Booker T. Jones and Sam Moore will appear alongside Sir Tom Jones, a longtime fan and interpreter of the Stax songbook, Beverley Knight, James Morrison and Ruby Turner.

This event takes place at Royal Albert Hall, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
