Teenyboppers of a certain age can squeeze into their tartan trousers and head off to Scunthorpe Plowright Theatre and shake their scarves along to Les McKeown’s Bay City Rollers Story.
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 band’s singles and albums shot to the number spot all over the globe. Massive hits such as ‘Bye Bye Baby’, ‘Shang A Lang’, ‘Summer Love Sensation’ and ‘Give A Little Love’ (to name just a few) propelled the band to world-wide superstardom and their trademark Scottish tartan was to be seen everywhere across the planet.
The Bay City Rollers Story 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. Renewed 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 A fantastic night of fun and nostalgia is promised.
