Rollermania – Les McKeown & His Legendary Bay City Rollers
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 70’s. The face and voice of that soundtrack belonged to Les McKeown.
With Les leading the way, 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. Join Les McKeown and his 4 piece band for a celebration of an amazing show!
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. All the hits songs are there and audiences are promised a fantastic night of fun and nostalgia as they take a trip back to those innocent days of growing up to the sounds of The Bay City Rollers.

Jack And The Beanstalk - Family Pantomime
Ramps is thrilled to announce another GIANT of a pantomime – full of adventure and spectacle, a magical treat filled with song, dance and audience participation – perfect for children and adults alike – Jack and the Beanstalk 2015.
This spectacular family adventure, featuring more comedy than you can shake a bag of magic beans at, together with outrageous costumes, fabulous sets, and a huge beanstalk… with one very mean giant at the top of it.
Don’t miss out on what promises to be a fantastic magical production.
In 1973 a record was released which would bridge the generation gap and become a rock anthem to both young and old - '20th Century Boy' was written and composed by Marc Bolan, who with his band T.Rex, was one of the most flamboyant and charismatic of the original glam rock era. With Bolan's special ingredient of Rock-a-Boogie songs throughout the 1970s including 'Telegram Sam' and 'Jeepster' he was able to obtain what would be yet another Top 20 record later in 1976 that has since become one of the most memorable and everlasting signature tunes, 'I Love to Boogie'.
T.Rextasy have now been performing around the world for over 20 years, a career that ironically out lives Marc’s very own T.Rex. The band is now accepted as the world’s only official live tribute band dedicated to Marc Bolan & T.Rex, and the only band endorsed and approved by Marc Bolan’s family, estate, original ex-members of T.Rex, and Bolan’s catalogue management. The band has been described by many as ‘beyond the boundaries of tribute’.
Truly a rock’n’roll concert for all ages - If you would like to know exactly what a Marc Bolan concert was like in the 1970s, this show is for you!

Her stage career has included the roles of the original Mrs Johnstone in Willy Russell’s long-running musical, ‘Blood Brothers’ and as Viv Nicholson in ‘Spend Spend Spend,’ both of which have won her an Olivier award for ‘Best Actress’.
Barbara was awarded an O.B.E. by Her Majesty the Queen in the 2002 New Year’s Honours for her services to music and drama and, with a new album of the songs of Gerry Rafferty due later this year, she continues to record and to play to sold-out audiences throughout the UK.

The Dublin Legends - Concert Tour 2015
The Dublin Legends
Sean Cannon, Eamonn Campbell, Patsy Watchorn & Gerry O’Connor
Formerly of The Dubliners
Sean Cannon, Patsy Watchorn, Eamonn Campbell & Gerry O’Connor are all true legends of Irish Folk music. Sean & Eamonn were members of The Dubliners for close to 30 years while Patsy joined “The Dubs” 10 years ago. Meanwhile Gerry was a member of the iconic Four Men & A Dog and has played with everyone from Sharon Shannon to Shane MacGowan and also tours with guitar legend Joe Bonamassa.
In 2012 the Legendary Irish Folk group THE DUBLINERS celebrated 50 glorious years in the music business by receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and rapidly followed it up with a sell-out UK concert tour, the highlight of which was a magical night at The Royal Albert Hall in London.
Sadly, however, they subsequently suffered a body blow with the sudden tragic death of founding member “Banjo” Barney McKenna. Quite naturally this meant that the remaining members chose to sit down and decide upon the band’s future. John Sheahan, after 48 years of touring, decided it was time to step off the tour bus and it was agreed that The Dubliners, as a touring band, would come to an end. THE DUBLIN LEGENDS were born.
THE DUBLIN LEGENDS will continue the legacy started by Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Ciaran Bourke, Barney McKenna & John Sheahan back in 1962. As Barney himself said “It’s Too Late To Stop Now”.
“The Lads” are looking forward to entertaining & meeting all their old friends & fans in the UK, Scotland & Europe in 2014 and will continue to play all the classic songs and ballads known the world over; Whiskey in The Jar, Dirty Old Town, The Wild Rover, Seven Drunken Nights, The Rare Auld Times, Finnegan’s Wake, Molly Malone, The Monto, Hand Me Down Me Bible, The Irish Rover, Black Velvet Band & many more.
