Music which ‘became the soundtrack of a generation’ will bring back the sounds of the ‘seventies to Blackfriars Theatre next week.

The Bay City Rollers, starring original vocalist Les McKeown, will take to the stage at the Spain Lane theatre on Friday, January 8.

With Les leading the way, all the band’s favourite hits will be performed, including ‘Bye Bye Baby’, ‘Shang A Lang’, ‘Summer Love Sensation’ and ‘Give A Little Love’.

A promoter for the show said: “In 1974 the world was to witness a new musical phenomenon the like of which had not been seen the days of Elvis and The Beatles. The music of the Bay City Rollers became the soundtrack for a generation of teenagers growing up in the mid ‘70s. The face and voice of that soundtrack belonged to Les McKeown.

“The Bay City Rollers starring Les McKeown is a celebration of those hectic days of Hit songs, Touring, TV Shows and the behind the scenes pandemonium that followed the band everywhere they went. A transformed Les McKeown has come through the extreme highs and lows of life’s great road and he is here to tell us all about it. All the hits songs are there and audiences are promised a fantastic night of fun and nostalgia as they take a trip back to those innocent days of growing up to the sounds of The Bay City Rollers starring Les McKeown.”

The show starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £23 including a 50p refurbishment levy per seat.
