Jools will be taking the greatest boogie-woogie party around the UK once again, with his annual Autumn/Winter Tour covering 27 venues and 34 dates across the UK and Ireland, from Thursday 16th October.

Soul sensation Joss Stone, British icon Marc Almond, plus singer/songwriter and vocalist extraordinaire Rumer, will be joining Jools and his much loved Rhythm & Blues Orchestra on selected dates.

Joss Stone will be joining Jools and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for the first time for a total of nine dates, making for a very exciting addition to the line-up. Joss rocketed onto the UK music scene at the age of 16 with her debut album The Soul Sessions. The two-time BRIT Award winner has had numerous hits with Super Duper Love and You Had Me, and has performed with the likes of Mick Jagger, James Brown, Gladys Knight, Solomon Burke, Blondie, Smokey Robinson, and Melissa Etheridge, among many others.

Marc Almond will be making a special appearance at 27 dates of the tour. In addition to numerous hits during his time in Soft Cell, including Tainted Love, Say Hello, Wave Goodbye, Marc has become an international acclaimed solo artist with chart-topping success around the world. His brand new 4-track EP, featuring a plethora of excellent 'friends' – including Jarvis Cocker (Pulp), Carl Barat (The Libertines, Dirty Pretty Things), and producers Tris Penna and Tony Visconti – was released on Monday 10th February.

Rumer will also step on the boogie-woogie stage and will be joining Marc Almond as a special guest on the final six dates of the forthcoming tour. Rumer is an Anglo-Pakistani singer/songwriter whose debut album Seasons Of My Soul has sold over a million copies worldwide, seen her nominated for two BRIT Awards, and secured the much-coveted Mojo Award for Breakthrough Act. A year later she released Boys Don't Cry, which debuted at Number 3. Its success took Rumer everywhere, from Buckingham Palace to the White House, and brought her together with Jools and the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for the collaboration Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive, which was featured on Jools' 2012 album The Golden Age Of Song. Rumer is currently recording her second album of original material.

With the vocal power of Ruby Turner, the Soul tones of Louise Marshall, and the tireless drums of original Squeeze member Gilson Lavis, along with the inimitable musicianship of the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, Jools Holland will perform tracks spanning his entire solo career.
