Do you have your ticket for the ultimate pop glam band of the 70s yet?

If not, then don’t delay any longer as this may be the last chance you’ll ever get to re-live up close and personal the nostalgic experience of one of the few, if not the only, virtually all original 70s chart bands that are fast becoming an endangered species! 70s hit makers The Rubettes featuring Alan Williams, the original vocalist and guitarist, John Richardson and Mick Clarke, also both 70s originals on drums and bass guitar respectively, complete this Rubettes line up with Steve Innes Etherington on Keyboards and guitar and will be touring the U.K. 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. With the ever increasing continuing demise of our 60s and 70s pop heroes, this is a chance not to be missed. Pop history waits for no person and ‘tributes’ aside, there really is nothing like the real thing. 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 before and during the success years together 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, make it the 70s show of 2016 that you won’t want to miss.

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. Most of the original band members who actually played and sang on such 70s hit classics as ‘Sugar Baby Love’, ‘Tonight’, ‘Juke Box Jive’, ‘Baby I know’ and many more are still there in the band which means 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 70’s pop music an imminent possibility.
