For retro rockers and music fans alike, Louth is hosting a couple of gigs in the coming months that will have you donning your tartans and breaking out the air guitar.
Showaddywaddy have long been established as Europe’s most successful ever exponents of retro-inspired rock & roll.
Over a decade spanning four decades, they’ve clocked up 23 Top 40 hit singles; appeared on Top of the Pops over 50 times, played for the Queen Mother and were even the first western band to be screened live in Communist Cuba.
But the band aren’t resting on the laurels and are putting on live shows with as much gusto as they used to, and you can catch them in Louth when they play the Town Hall on Saturday 2 November.
Showaddywaddy aren’t the only rock royalty playing Louth’s Town hall this year, with Les McKeown and his Bay City Rollers arriving to let loose on Saturday 14 December.
Come join the legendary 70’s tartan icon Les McKeown and his Bay City Rollers for what promises to be a unique festive voyage back to the seventies, to a time when Les and his band ruled the world’s pop charts and the Rollers’ music became the soundtrack for a generation of teenagers.
Les brings back the 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 many more.
