JOHN OTWAY AND HIS BIG BAND

— The Thunderbolt
JOHN OTWAY AND HIS BIG BAND
time:19:30
price: See event details

Information:

John first achieved notoriety with his eye-watering performance on Old Grey Whistle Test and subsequent hit single 'Really Free' in 1977. A heady mix of blind ambition and rank incompetence was to keep this microstar shining for almost two decades despite Otway's ability to turn any situation to his own disadvantage.

His autobiography 'Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure' out sold, by a factor of ten, all the records he had released since his hit, and now Otway is struggling to live up to this billing - selling out London Astoria for his 2000th gig in 1993, filling the Royal Albert Hall in 1998, and charting at number 9 with his 2002 single 'Bunsen Burner'. For John 'Two Hits' Otway, 'the future's bright; the future's Otway!

Check out tonight’s gig. Joining John on stage are Richard Holgarth on lead guitar, Seymour on bass guitar, songwriter Murray Torkildsen on guitar and drummer Adam Batterbee.!
