Later... with Jools Holland

Long-running BBC Two music show ‘Later… With Jools Holland’ will mark its 30th birthday with a special show recorded at the Hammersmith Apollo in London later this year. Performers for the show will be kept a secret until the night, so don’t even ask me.

“It’s unbelievable that this year sees my show reach its 30th birthday”, says Holland. “It’s a testament to the great power of music that we are still going strong, and are now the longest-running international music show on earth. I’m delighted and honoured that we’re going to celebrate this monumental milestone with a special one off event in the fabulous Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith, the scene of so many legendary musical moments”.

The show’s Executive Producer Alison Howe adds: “’Later…’ reaching its 30th birthday is testament to Jools, all the incredible musicians who have supported us and our crew, whose love and commitment of showcasing live music for the audience is unmatched. With our upcoming series, this special show and our 30th annual ‘Hootenanny’, it’s going to be an incredible three months of live music”.

Don’t get distracted by word of another ‘Hootenanny’. The 30th anniversary show is something different. There’s no word yet on when it will take place, nor when it will be broadcast, but tickets will go on sale this Friday at 10am.
