Formula One’s Eddie Jordan to headline T In The Park

Motor racing mogul to play in the Pet Sounds Arena

Former Formula One team boss Eddie Jordan is set to headline T In The Park on Sunday night (July 13).

Jordan will play in the Pet Sounds Arena with his band, Eddie The Robbers, after Hot Chip perform on the stage, reports the Daily Record.

Jordan, who plays drums in the band, is likely to be joined by a plethora of stars for his show. He is good friends with Stereophonics, who play at the festival tomorrow (July 11), as well as Queen‘s Roger Taylor.

Geoff Ellis, who booked Jordan for the bash, described the band’s music as, “Like ‘The Commitments’ but not naff.”

“They play good old-fashioned soul and 60s R&B,” he continued. “They play original songs and will probably throw in a couple of covers.”
