Dear Live Music Fan
As it says on the web site:-
Europe’s most electrifying tribute to AC/DC
The Boys Are Back In Black!
2020 saw an unprecedented global pandemic derail life as we know it, and in the wake of Covid 19, the world needs to pull together more than ever. AC/DC UK know that rock and roll unites, and are more determined than ever to bring together everybody for a party with a bang!
AC/DC UK, the world’s most authentic tribute to the Brian Johnson era, aim to pick up exactly where they left off with the same high energy, electrifying performance. Complete with fully firing cannons, inflatable Rosie, and iconic Angus and Brian chemistry, AC/DC UK churn out all of the biggest hits alongside a few fan favourites at every show! The band have delivered on the biggest of stages such as Graspop Metal Meeting (2018), Stone Free (2016), Herning Rocker (2019) and more, featuring on the same billing as rock titans including Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, The Darkness, D-A-D and many many more. The band regularly rock all over Europe and beyond, playing in excess of 20 countries worldwide in the past decade.
The boys are Back in Black, and ready to Shoot To Thrill in 2021; We Salute You All!
Book now at or your usual web links and to remind you this is adults only at the request of the band and we will be busy.
Unchained - Best Of Joe Cocker Live: Paul Cox + Mike Summerland + Dave Neal + Dave Moore + Nigel Hardy + Linda Hall
From the heady days of his Woodstock triumph and the now legendary Mad Dogs And Englishman tour through to big time movie ballads and interpretations of classic tunes, Unchained: The Best Of Joe Cocker live covers all the elements of a classic career in music.
With a 7 piece band full of top musicians, many of them have played with legends themselves and made their own mark in the music business, and fronted by British Blues Awards 2016 nominee Paul Cox, a voice that many have compared to Mr Cocker himself, this is a show paying homage, it's about the music of a great man.
Songs included: With A Little Help From My Friends, Delta Lady, The Letter, You Are So Beautiful, Up Where We Belong, Feelin' Alright, She Came In Through The Bathroom Window, Cry Me A River, Unchain My Heart, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood.
This will be a mainly seated show so get in early to get the best seats. If you do not manage to get a chair then it will be standing around the edge of the room, or you can elect to stand anyway if you prefer.
We will not be that busy and that is a crying shame as, having seen this show twice, I can tell you it is a masterclass, I would pay just to hear Mike Summerland on the guitar!
Book now at or your usual web links and we will not be busy. If you have not seen it before you have missed a treat.
It seems that, for now at least, The Sword of Damocles has been replaced in its scabbard and these passports will not be brought in.

It follows that vaccinated or not you are able to attend a show. If you are not vaccinated then maybe the busy nights are ones to avoid for your own safety? I have to leave that one with you.
Obviously you should not attend if you are unwell or showing any symptoms of Covid or think you have been in contact with anyone who may have it and have not done a test vaccinated or not.
It seems the rules were misread and smoking is allowed in the usual place by the side of the pitch. There is a large sand filled “ashtray” out there which must be used.
60’s and 70’s ROCK SHOW
Well we had enough in to make it feel fairly busy which was great and we were treated to a fine fine show. I am sure they will return, but maybe not for….well a while!
I think that is all
See you soon – do come to the Joe Cocker Show if nothing else, this could be your last chance to see it as I am unsure if the singer, Paul Cox, is going to carry on with it.
Best regards
