WISHBONE ASH SPECIAL 50th ANNIVERSARY SHOW
Saturday October 26 – 8pm – £22 advance/£25 door
It’s not only the 50th Anniversary of one of the all time great blues/rock bands but also incredibly their 20th appearance at the venue!
Such is the band’s huge popularity, they still continue to tour the world performing all the classic and brand new material with their hard-hitting dual lead guitar driven rock winning a whole new army of fans along the way.
With main man Andy Powell still at the helm they are undoubtedly one of the most celebrated bands in the history of rock.
Their 1972 album “Argus” was named as “Album Of The Year” by Melody Maker and since then the accolades and critical acclaim have continued to grow and grow.
Andy has been a constant “Best Guitarist” contender throughout his career and a highly sought after session musician.He featured as part of Miles Copeland’s “Night Of The Guitar” tour alongside fellow greats such as Jan Akkerman, Steve Howe, Leslie West, Randy California, Robby Krieger and Alvin Lee.
Wishbone Ash continue to record and have over 30 albums to their credit but they are best known for their dynamic stage performances and never fail to give audiences what they want and much much more!
JOHN OTWAY is a totally unique performer and self confessed ” Rock & Roll’s Greatest Failure”.
By turns, a sensitive songwriter and totally out outrageous on stage, he first hit the headlines after making a sensational appearance on the Old Grey Whistle Test in December 1977 whilst performing his Top 30 hit ” Really Free”.
The unforgettable performance has achieved legendary status after he vaulted on to the PA tower which promptly overbalanced. The Independent reported “He brought down the speaker stack but fractured no bones when he landed on the sharp corner of a bass cabinet as the impact was cushioned by his testicles!”
Often appearing alongside Wild Willy Barrett, John has built up a loyal cult following who assisted greatly in 2002 when he was asked what he wanted for his 50th birthday and he said “A second hit!”
A concerted drive at grassroots level saw his track “Bunsen Burner” reach Number 9 in the Singles Charts and gain him an appearance on Top Of The Pops. He not only achieved his ambition but was then able to release a Greatest HITS album!
Age certainly hasn’t diminished his enthusiasm and athleticism so always expect the unexpected during his act with his hilarious on stage antics having to be seen to be believed!
An incredible, unmissable line-up celebrating some of the greatest rock music of the last 50 years!!!
