On Saturday The Real Thing, Alvin Stardust and Heatwave will be entertaining Swindon in the Old Town Bowl.
The Real Thing
Britain’s No.1 Soul band celebrates an incredible 40 years in the business. The three original vocalists, Chris and Eddie Amoo and Dave Smith perform with their own 5 piece band in a performance that features their million selling hits, including You to Me Are Everything, Can’t Get By Without You and Can You Feel The Force?
The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards called Alvin “The Godfather of British rock and roll” and, today, Alvin continues to be at the cutting edge of his profession. A superb live performer, Alvin’s renowned stage act won him Music Weeks Best Live Male Performer Award. Alvin had numerous chart hits including My Coo Ca Choo, Jealous Mind (UK No.1), You, You, You and Red Dress. If you’re ready to rock, you’ll love Alvin Stardust!
This band was formed by the Wilder Brothers, Johnnie and Keith, on their discharge from the US Army. An advert in a music paper yielded Hull’s England born songwriter Rod Temperton. With hits like Mind Blowing Decisions, Boogie Nights and the all-time class Always and Forever, Heatwave are no strangers to chart success with foot stomping Boogie Nights climbing all the way to No.1 in 1977.
The Bowl Concerts team are chuffed to have partnered up with Total (Guide to) Swindon and Jack FM this year.
If you’ve not been to the Swindon Bowl (which is located in the Old Town Gardens on Quarry Road), then you’re in for a real treat. This beautiful venue, which has seen many great acts performing on its small but perfectly formed stage, is one of Swindon’s gems. The venue has limited capacity and with tickets already selling fast, make sure you call the Arts Centre Box Office to get your tickets for an amazing night of retro fun!
Just a reminder that concert goers can bring their own food (and soft drinks in sealed bottles/cans) but no alcohol can be brought into the venue – there’ll be a bar in the Bowl where you can buy food and drink.
Gates: 6.00pm, Concert starts 6.45pm
Tickets: Advance Price £15, Children £5
On the gate £17.50, Children £5
