Les McKeown & The Bay City Rollers return to Southport Theatre
The Bay City Rollers return to Southport after almost 40 years
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.
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.
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.
Les arrived in Southport along with band members at dinner time today and kindly posed for photo’s and signed autographs for waiting fans.
