THE LEGENDARY Showaddywaddy have long been established as one of Europe’s most successful ever exponents of retro-inspired rock and roll - and now they’re heading to our region for a rocking show in Scunthorpe.

With an impressive 23 top 40 hit singles, including 10 top five hits (Under The Moon of Love, When, You Got What It Takes, Three Steps To Heaven, Hey Rock and Roll) and 15 massive selling albums - they’ve certainly left their mark.

A spokesman said: “Now they return with an incredible live show - acclaimed the world over.”

“They’ve performed in excess of 50 Top Of The Pops performances, and won countless Industry awards. They were bill toppers at the prestigious Golden Orpheus World Music Festival before a staggering TV audience of 300 million people - making history in the process by becoming the first western-world band to be screened live in Communist Cuba.”

“As if the band’s amazing success through four decades wase not enough, here now, well into the 21st Century the demand for these legendary performers is every bit as strong. Surely a testament to their outstanding reputation as live artists.”

He added: “On the back of these hugely successful concerts, and after massive public demand, the band will again be touring with a brand new show this year, with an expanded line-up to perform The Greatest Hits. “

Showaddywaddy will be performing at Scunthorpe’s Plowright Theatre on Friday 15th February.
