Don’t miss the Rubettes at Marine Hall, FleetwoodPublished Tuesday, 12 April 2016
Do you have your ticket for the ultimate pop glam band of the 1970s yet?
If not, then don’t miss your chance to re-live up close and personal the nostalgic experience of one of the few original 70s chart bands around, as hit makers The Rubettes visit Marine Hall, Fleetwood on Friday 20 May.
Alan Williams, the original vocalist and guitarist, John Richardson and Mick Clarke, also both original band members on drums and bass guitar respectively, complete this Rubettes line up with Steve Innes Etherington on keyboards and guitar. Together they will be touring the UK for only the second time since they first took the world by storm when their number one hit ‘Sugar Baby Love’ topped the charts, selling over 10 million copies.
The upcoming ‘An Evening With’ tour visits 55 theatre venues throughout England, Scotland and Wales and promises something entirely different to a usual concert experience.
All the hits, of which there are many, will naturally be featured plus a selection of songs that hold special significance to the band members, with some album tracks that they have never before performed live. All this, interspersed with recollections and often hilarious anecdotes surrounding the early years - including the real reason the caps were adopted and what Showaddywaddy and another famous American band had to do with the Rubettes’ success!
As tribute bands are steadily replacing their original counterparts in perpetuating rock ’n’ roll legends, the authenticity of the Rubettes featuring Alan, John and Mick is unique. The remaining original band members actually played and sang on such hit classics as ‘Sugar Baby Love’, ‘Tonight’, ‘Juke Box Jive’, ‘Baby I know’ and many more meaning the songs don’t just sound the same but they are the same. It makes the whole concept of time travelling to the heyday of 70s pop music a real possibility!
The Rubettes are performing at Marine Hall, Fleetwood on Friday 20 May at 7.30pm. Tickets are £20, to book call 01253 887693 or visit www.marinehall.co.uk
