50s And 60s Nostalgia Awaits With David Hamilton
Music lovers are invited to start the New Year with a toe-tapping trip down memory lane in an evening of rock and roll in Tamworth.
Legendary DJ and broadcaster David Hamilton will host Rock n' Roll Back The Years at Tamworth Assembly Rooms on Saturday 23 January in a two-hour show that will transport audiences back to the time of beehive hair dos, mini skirts and hot pants.
David has hosted more than 12,000 radio shows and over a thousand TV shows in an illustrious career which spans seven decades and has seen him working with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Roy Orbison, Cliff Richard, PJ Proby and David Cassidy to name just a few.
Rock n' Roll Back the Years revives the hits of a bygone era in a show dripping with nostalgia, sprinkled with humour and laced with little nuggets of information that could only be gained by someone who was actually there at this incredible time in popular music history.
David has also handpicked an amazing band of musicians - The Fugitives and the sensational Tiffany Girls – who will storm through the hits from the fabulous 50s and swinging 60s while David tells the stories behind some of the era's most classic songs.
This fabulous show is a must for anyone looking to start the year as they mean to go on - laughing and dancing along to an evening of great entertainment.
It is also one of the last events taking place at the historic venue before it closes in February to undergo a major transformation.
Tickets are priced at £20 per adult and £15 per child and are available online at www.tamworthartsandevents.co.uk from the Tourist Information Centre in Corporation Street or by calling the Box Office on 01827 709618.
