THEY toured with The Beatles and knew Elton John when he was plain old Reg.
This year, The Barron Knights are back on the road, celebrating their 50th anniversary.
Bassist Peter Langford, one of the founder members, said the group had been on the road since January.
“We’re doing 42 dates for the 50th anniversary, all of them in the UK,” said 68-year-old Peter.
“We’ve got lots of stories, like Bill Wyman, from the Stones, who came to see us and was inspired to pick up a guitar.”
On May 6, they’ll be back at Solihull Arts Complex. Tickets are available on 0121 704 6962.
