RAY DAVIES AT PROMS IN THE PARK
Genre: Music Concert
Ray Davies is a legend of rock and roll. Fans have been clamoring to see him in concert for over 40 years, whether he was playing as a solo act, or with his original, highly-successful band, The Kinks. Davies started out as a founding member in 1964 with the seminal rock band and remained as a member until the group went their separate ways in 1996, but he also engaged in and gained popularity with several side projects during that period. Today, his music embodies the style that he developed with The Kinks, and many credit his innovations as the precursor to modern-day heavy metal.
As an audience member witnessing his live performance, Davies will blow you away, and allow you to see a show that contains several different stylistic directions – and in the setting of the iconic annual Proms in the Park, held at Hyde Park, the energy is contagious! This spectacular annual outdoor concert is Britain’s largest outdoor classical music event and part of the annual spectacular culmination of two months of music-making, and is known worldwide as the famous “Last Night” – during which thousands of people come together at venues across the UK to be part of the magic. Presenting a set of his greatest hits, Sir Ray’s appearance promises to be a true reflection of his contribution to music throughout the years. Sir Ray will lead a full orchestra and chorus in renditions of “Sunny Afternoon”, “Lola”, “Days”, “You Really Got Me” and smash-hit “Waterloo Sunset” – which even today remains one of the best known songs of the 1960s.
