Get your air guitars at the ready for some of the best 70s glam rock is coming to Lancaster Grand this September.

The Original Jukebox Heroes will bring a high octane show, with a set list boasting some of the best rock tracks, including Fox On The Run, Mama Weer All Crazee Now, Love is Like Oxygen, Ballroom Blitz and many more.

The super-group is made up of six members who can each boast an impressive four decades of live music experience.

Jeff Brown is on vocals and bass guitar (Sweet and Tremeloes) and there is also Steve Whalley (Slade front-man) on guitar, Pete Phipps (original drummer with The Glitter Band, Eurhythmics) on drums, Phil Hendriks (The Stiffs, Les McKeown’s Bay City Rollers) and Philip Wright (original lead singer and drummer with Paper Lace) providing vocals and additional percussion.

Jeff Brown formed the band in 2005. The premise of the group was to construct a band of original glam rock superstars and long-serving members from well known glam rock bands and deliver a show of 70s classics, with all the gusto and dedication that was present when the songs were originally released. The show is packed with an energetic cavalcade of classics.

The Original Jukebox Heroes have been very successful in Russia and Europe and regularly appear at outdoor festivals in Belgium and Germany.

Tickets are £18/£17 for concessions and are available from the box office on 01524 64695 or visit www.lancastergrand.co.uk/shows
