Rod Davis with the Wilburys

The Trembling Wilburys returned to London Beatles Day on Sunday October 20th for the third time to play a short acoustic set, marking exactly 25 years of the original Traveling Wilburys, which was well received by a highly appreciative crowd. The event was also much busier than usual due to the presence of author Mark Lewisohn talking about his mammoth new Beatles biography “All These Years – Vol. 1: Tune In”, and signing copies all afternoon in an adjacent room – thereby sadly missing our fine set (!) which consisted of ‘She’s My Baby’, ‘Dirty World’, ‘If I Need Someone’, ‘Here Comes The Sun’, ‘You Got It’, ‘End of The Line’ and ‘Handle With Care’.
