They will perform at The Woodville.

The Commodores’ founder and hit writer will perform with his band at The Woodville, Gravesend, on January 31.

Thomas McClary & His Band will play in Gravesend as part of their greatest hits tour.

McClary formed The Commodores with Lionel Richie, writing, producing and performing music that was cherished by many.

They made their mark on music history after the group signed with Motown Records in 1972, performing to packed arenas and opening for The Rolling Stones.

The group broke the all-time live show attendance previously held by The Beatles.

Mr McClary said: “After I co-founded the band with my college buddy Lionel Richie, we found a lot of success and earned the loyalty of fans all over the world.

“The Commodores’ songs and our love of music live on.

“I’m happy to tour again and reconnect with my fans.”

Thomas McClary & His Band will energise the famous guitar licks from three decades of music history as well as performing their new release, America, which was co-written by Thomas McClary and his son Ryan McClary.

They will perform hits including Brick House, Easy, Nightshift and Three Times a Lady, as well as the new single Mr Cool Breeze in an evening full of musical memories.
