Clearwater Creedence Revival and The Animals Farewell Tour

Clearwater Creedence Revival and The Animals Farewell Tour

An evening of quality live music with Clearwater Creedence Revival and The Animals.

Clearwater Creedence Revival:

Can you believe it’s over 50 years since legendary Woodstock Festival, Along with Santana, Ten Years After, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, The Who, Janis Joplin and a host of other iconic, or soon-to-be iconic artists, was Creedence Clearwater Revival. Five decades on, the spirit, power and quality of their iconic songs – ‘Proud Mary, ‘Bad Moon Rising’, ‘Have You Ever Seen The Rain’ and more are powerfully reprised with Clearwater Creedence Revival – along with material from CCR frontman, John Fogerty – most recently seen on tour with ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons.

“Clearwater Creedence Revival do themselves “Proud” (‘…Mary’). The vocalist is a big, bearded fella with a lovely, gravelly voice and he guides us through some classic Country stylings and soothes many a hungover head. ‘Bad Moon Rising’, ‘Have You Ever Seen The Rain’ and ‘I Put A Spell On You’, amongst others, make not being able to get to the bar more bearable, and in a world seemingly overrun with Creedence bands, this lot can hold their heads high above the rest.“ (ROCKTOPIA, Giants of Rock review)

Selling out at venues all over the world, Clearwater Creedence Revival feature road-hardened players who, collectively have performed with -Stax legend Steve Cropper, Big Country, Denny Laine (Wings, Moody Blues), Eric Haydocks Hollies, Animals And Friends, Alan Silson (Smokie), Wayne Fontana’s Mindbenders and more.

Together, they are the best ‘tribute’ to CCR & Fogerty you’re ever likely to see – and a band selling out all over the world, as audiences in Germany, Israel, Russia, Holland, Scandinavia, UK and more will attest!

The Animals Farewell Tour:

Featuring from the original Animals: JOHN STEEL & MICK GALLAGHER (The Blockheads) Plus Danny Handley & Roberto Ruiz

In 1964 a wave of new energetic rock and roll swept over the youth of the world. On the crest of this wave was The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and of course The Animals. From the banks of the River Tyne came the North East’s offering; a brand of rhythm ‘n blues that the whole world seemed to grasp greedily.

The Animals were the second British band to top the American charts after The Beatles with the now multi-million selling and legendary anthem, House of the Rising Sun. The band subsequently achieved over twenty global Top Ten hit records. In Britain alone, the band had no less than twelve chart entries.

The enduring influence and breadth of appeal of The Animals’ music continues ever onwards. The Animals’ 1964 debut was recently included in CLASSIC ROCK magazines’ feature – ‘50 Albums That Built Blues Rock’

“Though the band has changed, the songs remain eternal, thanks to the protesting dissatisfaction linking them together… alongside covers of Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker classics, they ensure that the nostalgic element comes with an enjoyably abrasive edge”. (ANIMALS AND FRIENDS review – Andy Gill, The Independent)

After 60 years, the legend still grows…

“The Animals earned their name thanks to their wild stage act. That was 50 years ago, and they have calmed down since, but their music has lost none of its vigour” – Wales Online Review

Most blurbs are written in the 3rd person so they’ll be like ‘Gary is this, Gary is that, you can expect this from Gary’ well I’m writing this myself so, this will be MY 3rd show, or 2.5 as I’m calling it.

 

I’ve had several top professionals and industry people tell me over the years that I shouldn’t swear as much on stage, that I shouldn’t be as crude or as edgy as I am but guess what, they likely don’t know that as a kid growing up in the care system I was told that I’d be either dead or in jail by the time I was 30 so I tend not to listen to others and do things my way, its gotten me this far after all. 

 

This show will be a continued celebration of me being me which in the current climate of cancel culture we find ourselves in could be seen as risky but f*** it.  My targets as always will be my girls and me as well as life observations on things like, new laws on unsolicited d*ck pics, how equality between the sexes has a clear definitive line, all medication side effects, my loathing of stupid questions, how our ancestors were idiots and much much more.  I’m going to remain to be playfully dark and as always and do what I do best which is to be relatable, honest and give you an insight to what its like to be me, a young single grandad who’s passionate about making his audience laugh and then be available for hugs at the end if anyone needs or wants one.

 

See you all soon enough!

Be Bop A Lula at the Princess Royal TheatreBe Bop A Lula

The West End smash hit comes to town starring giants of rock’n’roll – Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Billy Fury, and Buddy Holly.

In 1960, American rockers Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent flew in from the States and were joined by British heartthrob Billy Fury for the UK’s very first multi-artist rock ‘n’ roll tour. Reviewers were appalled by the on-stage antics. Audiences screamed their approval. British youth culture was born! Relive these seminal concerts in the company of incredible singers and a band tighter than a pair of your tightest drainpipe trousers.

And there’s more, Buddy Holly’s live tours were equally responsible for introducing rock’n’roll to the UK. From Cochran’s legendary guitar riffs, Vincent’s menacingly moody stage presence, Fury’s smouldering looks and soaring vocals and Holly’s good-time rock’n’roll anthems, Be Bop a Lula is a real doozer of a stage show.
