Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings

1999 UK Tour Dates plus!

Gary's office rang BtP on 4 February 1999 with these tour dates, which had just been cleared for release. Great news for Gary's UK fans the length and breadth of Britain (except those in Bristol and further west!). Please note that the tour starts on Gary's birthday so the opening night should be quite a party!

We would like to hear from fans who went to these gigs and who would be willing to report and / or send photos in to 'Beyond the Pale'. Please mail us about this.

Interesting Bill / Gary interview about this tour here.
