FORMER Squeeze keyboard player Paul Carrack will play a solo concert at the Grand Pier this summer.

The man who replaced Jools Holland in the band in the early 1980s will take to the stage in Weston on July 13.

Paul first played in the band Ace, where he wrote and was the vocalist on How Lon’, their debut single which was a hit in the UK and the USA in 1975.

After leaving Squeeze he teamed up with Mike Rutherford of Genesis to form Mike + The Mechanics.

In 1989 they had a UK number two and USA number one hit with The Living Years.

Paul was also a member of Roxy Music and has played as a session musician with other bands including The Smiths and The Pretenders.

His solo career has been going strong since 1987, with his hit album One Good Reason and the single Don’t Shed A Tear.

Tickets for the concert on the seafront attraction, priced £27.50, with VIP ones at £35, are available from the Grand Pier shop on the first floor or online at www.grandpier.co.uk
