In his autobiography, The Soul Of It All, Bolton states he is ”just teeing off on the back nine of my career”. Now 66, so far that career has taken in writing with Bob Dylan, Kiss’s Paul Stanley, Lady Gaga, Diane Warren, and David Foster, while his songs have been recorded by Kiss, Kanye West, Jay Z, Barbra Streisand and Cher, and over the years he has performed with Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Renee Fleming and BB King.
Bolton’s past three British tours all sold out, so prompt booking is advised.
