Les is back on tour, bringing his fantastic show to Marine Hall on Friday 18 October at 7.30pm. Don’t miss this touring phenomenon - it will be a night to remember!
The tour promises to be a unique voyage back to the 1970s, when Les and his legendary band ruled the world’s pop charts and The Bay City Rollers’ music became the soundtrack for a generation of teenagers. Les brings back all the thrill and excitement of Rollermania, performing all the original hits including Bye Bye Baby, Shang-a-Lang, Remember, Summerlove Sensation and Give A Little Love plus many more as well as introducing new songs from the new album Lost Songs. The current Legendary Bay City Rollers bring a new energy to all the classic hits.
Les and his fantastic 4 piece band ‘The Legendary Bay City Rollers’ perform songs that influenced the original group as they were forging their way in the music business, as well as all the Roller hits. The show has been performing to sell out houses and has been widely acclaimed by both audiences and the entertainment media.
The Bay City Rollers notched up nine UK top ten hits including two number 1’s. Their first two albums, ‘Rollin'’ and ‘Once upon a Star’, stayed on the album charts for a total of 99 weeks from 1974 - 1976. ‘Bye Bye Baby’, the Rollers first number one, was the UK's biggest selling single of 1975. They even had their very own syndicated television show on both sides of the Atlantic.
The band were consistently hitting pop charts around the globe with songs such as ‘Give A Little Love’, ‘All of Me Loves All of You’ ’, ‘Remember’ and ‘Money Honey’.
They were mobbed wherever they went and their trademark Scottish tartan trimmed outfits seemed to be everywhere. The screams of a generation of young girls could be heard around the world.
Over a period of five years, they were one of the world's first ever boy bands consistently reaching number one not only in Britain but all over Europe, North America, Japan and Australia. Current estimated worldwide album sales are in excess of 3 hundred million.
